MTV Renews “Scream” for Truncated Third Season

MTV has given fans of its slasher series six reasons to scream!

After much speculation on whether or not Scream would be returning after its special two-hour episode this coming Tuesday, the network on Friday announced that it has ordered an additional season.

mtv-scream-season-1-official-trailerScream will likely resume sometime in 2017 with a total of 6 episodes, around half the amount of season 2 and just four episodes shy of its inaugural season.
