Fans of the Scream franchise rejoice – the original Ghostface mask from the movies will make its comeback in the third season of MTV’s Scream TV series.
While the first two seasons of the show were hit-or-miss, the show still delivered some chilling scenes. It also served up several twists similar to the original movies. But audiences had a hard time buying it. The show likely would have experienced more success if it separated itself from the original Scream franchise. Not only were none of the original characters or storylines involved, but the mask was also a complete departure from the original one. It didn’t really retain any of the franchise other than the name and a slasher-movie vibe.
For the third season, the series has gone through a lot of changes. The new showrunner will be Brett Matthews, who has previously worked on shows like Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. Also, Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere, and Yaneley Arty will be joining Scream as executive producers. This season will also star a complete new roster of actors – including Keke Palmer, RJ Cyler, Giorgia Whigham, Jessica Sula, Tyga, C.J. Wallace, and Giullian Yao Gioiello.
Fortunately, now it has been confirmed that the original Ghostface mask will make its television debut in Scream’s third season. How, or even if, this will tie into the movie storyline has yet to be announced. The 6-episode season 3 of Scream is currently in production in Atlanta. According to ScreenRant, “MTV plans to air the season as a three-night TV event in March 2018, but the network has yet to reveal a specific premiere date.”
Until then, seasons 1 and 2 of Scream are available to stream on Netflix. But, don’t expect a satisfying conclusion just yet.
