We reported late last month that MTV is going in an entirely new direction for Season Three of it’s Scream television series. It’s showrunner, storyline, and entire cast will be abandoned in favor of a new direction charted by Queen Latifah and Flavor Unit Entertainment. The news left fans wondering what to expect with regards to the new characters who will be featured next season. Now, we have the first bits of info on the characters who will replace Emma, Noah, Brooke, Audrey, and the rest of the gang!
In contrast to the predominantly white cast of Seasons One and Two, TV Line reports that “MTV is stressing diverse casting for Scream‘s third season.” TV Line reports that the following characters are currently being cast for Season Three of Scream:
“* First up is Dion, a Michael B. Jordan-esque football player on track to score a college scholarship — that is, until a masked killer uses Dion’s darkest secrets against him, turning his life upside down and making him question his own sanity.
* Liv is Dion’s cheerleader girlfriend, as beautiful as she is brilliant. She’s also down to lend a helping hand where needed, though her good intentions often land her in hot water.
* Kym is the rebellious one of the group, always willing to say what everyone else is thinking. She’s organized and protective, two qualities that will serve her well when a killer starts targeting her friends.
* Beth is a little different from her fellow seniors, sporting a goth look and a morbid collection of interests. A “walking encyclopedia of all things horror,” she’s compared to The Craft‘s Fairuza Balk.
* And then there’s Dion’s step-brother Jamal. Despite hanging out with a rough crowd, he’s got a big heart and an undying loyalty to Dion.”
These roles will likely be cast soon, so we should have some celebrity faces to place to these names soon. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more casting details for Season Three of MTV’s Scream as it breaks!
