MTV ‘Scream’ Season 2 Stabs Out Earlier Premiere, First Teaser
No good horror thrill is without its jump-scares, and MTV’s Scream Season 2 will honor the tradition. Just when you thought the next stab would arrive on May 31, the Season 2 premiere leaps out ahead of schedule, with a brand-new teaser to boot.
Where previously Scream Season 2 had in mind to premiere May 31, MTV now confirms that the second run will actually debut Monday, May 30. In lieu of a first official trailer however, enjoy the mask-y new teaser. So reads the full synopsis:
The second season picks up with Emma’s (Willa Fitzgerald) return to Lakewood after spending several months trying to recover at a retreat — though most wonder whether she truly has moved on. Meanwhile, Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) hides her connection to the Killer, but is getting harassed by someone who knows the truth. Brooke (Carlson Young) and Jake (Tom Maden) are also keeping their budding romance a secret from Mayor Maddox, while Noah (John Karna) grows closer to the truth about the season 1 murders.
Lakewood’s murderous past, both recent and distant, is brought into focus, with this Killer’s psychotic mind game intent on bringing the town’s heroes down in a storm of betrayal and bloodshed.
Season 1 co-showrunners Jill Blotevogal and Jamie Paglia have stepped down, replaced with collaborators Michael Gans and Richard Register, though Blotevogal will remain with Scream Season 2 as a creative consult.
