scream season 3 trailer

Remember Scream? No, I don’t mean the movie. I mean the TV spin-off series that aired on MTV. The series had its moments, but after two seasons, it seemed like any real enthusiasm for the show had evaporated. Despite all this, a third season was announced back in 2016…and then nothing happened. Until now. The series has been rebooted as Scream: Resurrection – and it’s found a new home. Instead of airing on MTV as originally planned, the new season will debut on VH1. Watch the Scream season 3 trailer below.

Blumhouse had smashing success with their sequel/reboot to Halloween, and while they still don’t have the rights to a sequel yet, they’re certainly mulling the idea. But what about other horror franchises? Could Jason Blum and company reboot more fright flicks? That’s the dream (or should I say nightmare?). In the past, Blum has mentioned a passing interest in a Scream reboot, and he hasn’t given up the idea. The mega-producer also would like to take a crack at Hellraiser. Nothing is even close to official yet, but that could change.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the exorcist ben daniels

Here’s the thing about the television adaptations of The Exorcist and Scream – they both sound like terrible ideas. They booth reek of desperation, of television networks dragging a popular and familiar name kicking and screaming into another medium, hoping that name recognition alone will attract an audience. In the age of The Walking Dead and American Horror Story, an age where horror on television has actually become popular, these shows feel like they should be the half-assed attempts to cash in on the small screen’s current obsession with things that go bump in the night.

But this is the point where I choke on my words, eat my hat, etc. Fox’s television riff on The Exorcist and MTV’s reinvention of Scream are not only good, but they’re also two horror-themed shows I’d actually recommend above the other major players in the genre this Halloween. I’m as surprised as anyone when I say that if you can only find time for two spooky shows to binge-watch during the season of the witch, pick these.
