MTV's Scream will have a much different look when the series returns, since it was revealed in April that Scream Season 3 will be a full reboot of the series, starring Queen Latifah. Now we've learned that the original mask is coming back. A new report reveals that the original Fun World Ghostface mask from the Scream movie franchise will be returning this season. MTV also recently announced even more new cast members for Scream Season 3.
Bloody-Disgusting first reported on the Fun World Ghostface mask being used, while MTV has revealed new cast members. The season, which will be moving production from New Orleans to Atlanta, features an entirely new cast, series location and premise that revolves around Deion Elliot, a local star running back whose tragic past comes back to haunt him at the worst time, threatening his hard-earned plans for his future, and the lives of his unlikely group of friends. RJ Cyler has been cast as Deion, a star running back for the high school football team, Deion hopes to secure a college football scholarship that will take him far away from Atlanta, a plan that seems destined to fail when he becomes the target of a masked killer with ties to his past. Someone knows Deion's darkest secret... and they'll use it to destroy him.
Other new cast members include Tyga as Jamal, Deion's older step-brother. Though they share blood, their worldviews couldn't be more different. Jamal is a hustler by nature, willing to work any angle to make ends meet for those he considers family. But when Jamal's ambitions don't line up with Deion's, it forces them to decide exactly how they fit into each other's lives. C.J. Wallace will take on the role of Amir, a good kid whose strict parents expect him to keep clean during high school, stay away from girls and ultimately find his place within the family business. But when events make him the unexpected target of a killer, Amir finds himself in over his head and his world view challenged.

The new cast also includes Keke Palmer as Kym, a rebel with a thousand causes, who is a bold and beautiful social activist with a big heart and zero patience for suffering fools. When Kym and her friends find themselves hunted by a killer, she works to flip the script and survive at any cost. Jessica Sula will portray Liv, the new girl at school. As a member of the cheer squad and a honor roll student, she seems to have a good head on her shoulders and an ideal life. But as she and Deion grow closer, amidst the murder and mayhem, it soon becomes clear that she has just as many secrets as everyone else. Giorgia Whigham will portray Beth. Caustic and darkly funny, Beth is the resident Goth girl and a local tattoo artist. As an unapologetic fan of horror films, Beth is outspoken about her encyclopedic knowledge of movie murder... which is sure to come in handy with a killer on the loose. Giullian Yao Gioiello portrays Manny who is openly gay and loyal to a fault. Usually the smartest person in the room, he's destined to achieve great things. But his wits are put to the test when he suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of a killer... which makes his simple goal of surviving high school and moving on with his life seem impossible.
