New Scream TV Series Trailer Reveals New Killer

Everything under the sun is getting remade, revamped, re-imagined, and rebooted these days, whether it be a new Mega Man cartoon, Bruce Campbell returning to the Evil Dead world in Ash vs. Evil DeadReBoot getting its own live-action/CG hybrid reboot, and the Powerpuff Girls are getting a makeover. I know I only focused on TV shows, but really – is nothing sacred?!

I say that with my tongue firmly in my cheek, as we all know the Hollywood cycle by now, as it has also found its next target: Scream. In case you haven’t heard, the popular metafictional film series that ruled the mid-’90s through the early ’00s. This time around, however, MTV is adapting the franchise for a new generation and a new format as Scream will be premiering as an MTV series on June 30th.

This first trailer for the series introduces us to the new generation of potential Ghostface victims, complete with a modernized version of the popular “Scream” mask that, quite frankly, is a lot more frightening. The premise, which revolves around a YouTube video gone viral that resulted in the death of a high school student, is similar to this year’s Unfriended, albeit without the angle of utilizing a computer screen to depict the film.

Watch the trailer above and let us know what you think!
