Keke Palmer of ‘Scream Queens’ Fame Joins the Cast of MTV’s ‘Scream’

Scream Queens may have been cancelled, but that doesn’t mean Keke Palmer is done screamin’! Variety reports that the up and coming actress, known for her role as Zayday Williams in Scream Queens, will be returning to horror television with a role in MTV’s rebooted third season of Scream.

Here’s what we know about her character so far:

“Palmer will play Kym, a bold and beautiful social activist with a big heart and zero patience for suffering fools.”

Palmer’s character Zayday shared many of these same qualities to the delight of the Scream Queens‘ fans; so it makes sense that Palmer will be taking on this kind of role in Scream. We’ve previously reported that the third season of the show will have an all-new cast, storyline, and creative direction under the guidance of producer, Queen Latifah, and new showrunner, Brett Matthews. In addition to Keke Palmer, the show will also star  Jessica Sula, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Tyga and C.J. Wallace.

A premiere date has not yet been set for Season Three of MTV’s Scream. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on this project as soon as they break!
