Recently we passed along the killer trailer for the upcoming third season reboot of MTV's Scream. This third season will be called Scream: Resurrection and will be moving over to VH1 to air it's six episodes over two nights later this month. And today we have the first clip from the rebooted season to share with you guys.
The clip is called "Becky meets Ghostface" and features Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, you know, meeting Ghostface.
While the scene kicks off with a fun visual trick that makes the clouds in front of the moon look like the infamous Ghostface mask, from there the scene mostly plays out like the classic Drew Barrymore sequence from the original movie back in 1996. But it quickly takes a turn when Paris Jackson decides to go to the front door and let Ghostface in. From there the clip gives us a cute twist, ending on a spooky Halloween note. I dig it.
But it does bring up an interesting point. From the looks of this clip and the recently released trailer, this new season of Scream seems to be all about Halloween. So why are the powers that be behind the scenes at VH1 unleashing the new nightmare during the summer? I mean I guess beggars can't be choosers and I'm just glad we're getting this third season at all.
This third season stars Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and Power Rangers star RJ Cyler as Deion Elliot, a local star football running back, whose tragic past comes back to haunt him and threaten his hard-earned plans for the future and the lives of his unlikely group of friends. Cyler will be joined by the likes of Mary J Blige, who will play his mother, along with Scream Queens star Keke Palmer, Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey, rapper, singer, actor, Tyga, 13 Reasons Why and The Punisher breakout Giorgia Whigham, and Split and Skins star Jessica Sula. The son of The Notorious B.I.G. and Faith Evans, C.J. Wallace rounds out the cast of season three along with Iron Fist star Giullian Yao Gioiello. Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, will guest star.
But best of all, this third season reboot will finally see (or more aptly hear) the return of Scream quadriolgy voice actor Roger Jackson as the killer's voice on the phone. You know the one. Not only that, but this third season reboot will finally feature the classic Ghostface mask that was missing from the first two season's of MTV's Scream: The TV Series.
The Vampire Diaries co-executive producer Brett Matthews is the showrunner for this third season of Scream: The TV Series and he will also serve as the reboot's executive producer along with Queen Latifah (yes, THAT Queen Latifah) Shakim Compere, Yaneley Artym, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, Cathy Konrad, and the original Scream quadrilogy director Wes Craven. Matthew Signer and Keith Levine produced the series, with Maggie Malina and Dana Gotlieb-Carter overseeing for VH1. Scream: Resurrection will air two episodes per night on VH1 starting Monday, July 8 and running through Wednesday, July 10. This clip comes to us from VH1 over on YouTube.
