With the finale episode left for season one of MTV’s “Scream,” fans may be delighted to find out that the network has confirmed the renewal for season two.
During Television Critics Association press tour, executive vice president of series development and head of scripted programming Mina Lefevre mentioned that the ratings proved that the show is a hit among the viewers.
“It has been a wonderful experience working with Bob Weinstein and his team, who are such connoisseurs of this genre and we are thrilled by how our viewers have responded to the reinvention of ‘Scream.’ We look forward to another season filled with suspense, horror and more twists and turns,” she said.
According to Deadline, the adaptation had a solid premiere with 1.5 million viewers and has generated 7.9 million streams worldwide. It averaged a 60 percent increase in live and same-day audience ratings week to week.
Weinstein who is the co-chairman of The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films teases that for the new season, “We promise even more scares, surprises, romance and of course kills in season two.”
Meanwhile the promo for the remaining episode seemingly hints that they may be more than just one killer. Although the official synopsis reads, “Emma’s search for answers will finally end when the killer is unmasked,” the film franchise it is based on is known to put twists that depict two or three culprits taking the lives of the victims.
For viewers who may be wondering if the show is going to follow an anthology format, Bex-Taylor Klaus who plays Audrey revealed that the survivors from season one will reprise their roles when it returns, “It’s not going to be like ‘American Horror Story.’ There’s definitely more to the story.” She also mentioned that her character may have some difficulty reconnecting with John Karna’s Noah but she has formed a stronger bond with Willa Fitzgerald’s Emma.
MTV has yet to announce the release date for season two but reports claim that it may be back sometime in 2016.
