The new MTV series based on the 1996 cult horror film will have the expected dose of mystery and murder, but this time with a whole new mask and motivation behind it. In the latest trailer for “Scream,” it’s clear that no one can hear cries for help in Lakewood, where the new killer preys upon teenage victims.
Instead of taking a cue from the slasher in the film, the killer in the TV series will have a reason for offing people left and right. In the series, a cyber-bullying attack leads to a murder, which leaves a whole new generation of teenagers vulnerable to the killer. “Scream” stars Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Carlson Young, John Karna and Connor Weil. Check out the latest teaser from The Hollywood Reporter above.
“Scream” premieres June 30 at 10pm on MTV.
