“Everyone has secrets. Everyone tells lies. Everyone is fair game. Don’t miss MTV’s new series ‘Scream’
After a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder, the shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens — with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart — become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of an assassin who’s out for blood. We’ve got the chills already!
Although there are no tangible connections to the original film franchise, the meta-commentary, dark humor and overall suspenseful tone do crossover as is presented in the trailer.
The series is set to premiere in June 30, 2015 on MTV. Take a stab at the trailer and promos below and see if you want to head into the pool with the killer new series.
