A third season for the teen horror drama "Scream" might be in the works on MTV.
Deadline reveals that the network and the production firm Dimension TV are planning to come up with a reboot of the 2-season series with a new storyline and a new cast after renewing the series for a third season back in October.
The report also reveals that MTV is still searching for new showrunners, after Michael Gans and Richard Register departed from the series after season 2.
The first two seasons of "Scream" on MTV centered on the series of killings in the town of Lakewood, which were patterned from the killing style of serial killer Brandon James in the past.
All the present deaths are linked to Emma Duvall (Willa Fitzgerald), the daughter of two survivors from the original Lakewood serial killings. She and her friends Audrey Jensen (Bex Taylor-Klaus), Brooke Maddox (Carlson Young), and Noah Foster (John Karna) tried to find out who was responsible for the present murders, until they learned that long-lost sister Piper Shaw (Amelia Rose Blaire) was behind the first series of murders in season 1.
The killings recurred in season 2, despite the death of Piper at the end of the first season. But this time, the perpetrator turned out to be Emma's love interest Kieran Wilcox (Amadeus Serafini), who also happened to be Piper's boyfriend.
There are no details yet regarding the possible return of the original cast from the first two seasons, but the report claims that the cast were given the permission quietly to appear in other jobs.
According to the reports, Fitzgerald was cast in a series regular role in the upcoming pilot "Behind Enemy Lines" on FOX, while Taylor-Klaus continues to lend her voice in the "Voltron: Legendary Defender" animated series. Karna, on the other hand, will reportedly appear in an upcoming film "Lady Bird," which will be released this year.
More details about the plans for "Scream" season 3 reboot are expected to be unveiled soon.
