Back on March 17th, we reported on a rumor that MTV’s Scream Season Three would be rebooted with a new cast and story. The speculation at the time was based on the show’s declining ratings (from 750,000 viewers per episode in Season One to 380,000 viewers per episode in Season Two), and the fact that key cast members were beginning to secure commitments to other shows (such as Willa Fitzgerald’s contract for Fox’s upcoming show, Behind Enemy Lines). While rumors about dramatic overhauls should always be taken with a grain of salt, this one turned out to be pretty much spot-on! MTV announced today that Season Three of Scream is “getting a total renovation,” with an all new showrunner, storyline, cast, and “flavor!”
