‘Scream’ Series to Debut June 30 on MTV — Watch First Trailer

Are you ready to scream — again?

MTV’s television adaptation of the horror movie franchise, “Scream,” is set to premiere June 30 this summer, and the first official trailer is here (watch below).

Bella Thorne, who plays Nina Patterson in the “Scream” series, announced the premiere date and introduced the first look preview Sunday at the MTV Movie Awards.

The “Scream” series will follow the aftermath of a cyber-bullying incident that results in a shocking murder. The brutal event brings back memories from of past killing spree that has haunted some, possibly inspires a new killer and brings together a new group of teens.

“Scream” also stars Willa Fitzgerald (“Alpha House,” “Royal Pains”), Amy Forsyth (“Torment,” “Reign”), John Karna (“Premature,” “The Neighbors”), Carlson Young (“Key and Peele,” “The Kroll Show”) and Amadeus Serafini.

Bob and Harvey Weinstein set up the project at MTV and will exec produce with Jill Blotevogel (“Harper’s Island,” “Ravenswood”) and Wes Craven, who directed the original flicks. Jamie Travis of MTV’s “Faking It” directed the pilot.

The original 1996 feature was written by Kevin Williamson (“Dawson’s Creek,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and featured Neve Campell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Rose McGowan, Skeet Ulrich, Jamie Kennedy, Matthew Lillard and Drew Barrymore.

The TV project is one of many 90’s remakes to hit the small screen, among the recent wave of TV revivals. “The X-Files” is returning for six episodes with David Duchovny and Gilliam Anderson, as is Craig T. Nelson’s “Coach” on NBC, “Twin Peaks” on Showtime and reportedly “Full House,” which is rumored to take off on Netflix. Cult favorite flick “Wet Hot American Summer” is also heading to Netflix, as a rebooted TV series, as is 1998 comedy film “Rush Hour,” which was given a pilot order at CBS, and NBC’s “Problem Child” pilot, which is based off the 1990 feature. Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World,” a sequel of “Boy Meets World,” returns with its second season season on May 11.
