Everyone’s a Killer (Or a Goner) in First ‘Scream’ Season 2 Trailer
The Scream franchise grew increasingly meta with each subsequent sequel, but will the same prove true of MTV’s teen adaptation? The first Season 2 trailer isn’t discounting the horror movie rules just yet, as there’s a new killer on the loose, and everyone’s as much a suspect as they are meat for the grinder.
Following the prior teaser, MTV released its first official trailer for the new Scream season on May 30, picking up with suspicion on Audrey (Arrow star Bex Taylor-Klaus) as the killer’s first season accomplice. Either way, the game is afoot once more, as the footage casts some killer guilt on just about everyone.
So reads the full synopsis:
The second season picks up with Emma’s (Willa Fitzgerald) return to Lakewood after spending several months trying to recover at a retreat — though most wonder whether she truly has moved on. Meanwhile, Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) hides her connection to the Killer, but is getting harassed by someone who knows the truth. Brooke (Carlson Young) and Jake (Tom Maden) are also keeping their budding romance a secret from Mayor Maddox, while Noah (John Karna) grows closer to the truth about the season 1 murders.
Lakewood’s murderous past, both recent and distant, is brought into focus, with this Killer’s psychotic mind game intent on bringing the town’s heroes down in a storm of betrayal and bloodshed.
Season 1 co-showrunners Jill Blotevogal and Jamie Paglia have stepped down, replaced with collaborators Michael Gans and Richard Register, though Blotevogal will remain with Scream Season 2 as a creative consult.
In the meantime, learn all about the new cast members, and stay tuned for more on Scream’s May 30 return.
