Scream is an American anthology slasher television series developed for MTV and VH1. It is based on the slasher film series of the same name created by Kevin Williamson and Wes Craven.
The first two seasons were situated in the fictional town of Lakewood, where a string of murders took place. At the center of those murders was Emma Duval (played by Willa Fitzgerald), a teenage girl who is somehow tied to the town’s dark past.
In April 2017, MTV announced that they were rebooting the series with the third season, with a new cast and setting.
