“By the time the first body is found, it’s only a matter of time before the bloodbath commences.” Just one of the lines from the new Scream trailer dropped today by MTV and Dimension Films. The series premieres June 30 on MTV. Check it out above.
Based on the hit horror franchise, the series follows the aftermath of the apparent crime-of-passion murder of Nina, a gorgeous entitled teen at Lakewood High School. After Audrey, a young artistic loner, is “outed” via cyberbullying, she has to find a way to hold her head up high with the help of Noah, her nerdy, hyper-intelligent best friend, and a renewed relationship with Emma, her former “bestie” from elementary school. In the meantime, Emma’s mom, Maggie (the town’s medical examiner) works with the town’s sheriff, Clark, to solve the murder and determine if it’s connected to a crime spree from the town’s dark past — a murder spree committed by a previous generation’s “bullying victim” Brandon James.
Scream stars Willa Fitzgerald (Emma), Bex Taylor-Klaus (Audrey), Carlson Young (Brooke) Amadeus Serafini (Kieran) John Karna (Noah), Connor Weil (Will), Tracy Middendorf (Maggie), and Jason Wiles (Sheriff Hudson).
