“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.

In addition to Keke Palmer, the show will also star  Jessica Sula, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Tyga and C.J. Wallace. read more

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!” read more
