The plans for the TV series season 3 and 4 revealed by Showrunners

Michael Gans and Richard Register discuss their involvement in the TV series Scream and explain the concepts for their uncooked seasons.

Showrunners off Scream: The TV show season 2, Michael Gans and Richard Register, reveal what seasons 3 and 4 would have looked like. The anthology slasher series based on the iconic horror films of the same name premiered on MTV in 2015, where it aired for two seasons before moving to VH1 four years later. The premise of the show was about a group of teenagers who were persecuted and targeted by a serial killer who wore a mask known to Ghostface, with the first two seasons focusing on the character Emma Duval in the fictional town of Lakewood. During the race, Scream would play Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus, John Karna, Amadeus Serafini, Connor Weil and Carlson Young.


Scream: The TV show received mostly mixed reviews from fans and critics, with some flaws in the series for its characters and reliance on the formula from its many predecessors. After its second season ended with a cliffhanger and a Halloween special establishing more potential to continue expanding Lakewood’s slasher mystery, MTV renewed the show. But with this renewal came the announcement of their plan to restart the project by introducing new faces and a different setting. The result, Scream: Resurrection, premiered in 2019 on VH1, a decision made in part due to the network’s older audience. As part of MTV’s initial attempt to reinvent the franchise, Brett Matthews replaced Gans and Register as the main showrunner. It was later revealed Resurrection would be the series’ final season.

Now, talking to Cursed disgustingGans and Register explain what would have happened in their unpublished third and fourth season of Scream: The TV series. The two reflect on their time making the series and discuss their love for the films before embarking on its reboot and possible cancellation. They say they had developed their own follow-up to the episodes they aired, but that MTV was not behind their direction. A potential season 3 would have forced the surviving members back together and introduced some new characters when a series of murders start up again and reveal more about their lives and how they have been affected. Everyone would start being killed, even when it reached the final, says Register “the killer is killed, then we retreat [to reveal it’s a TV production]. Amadeus Serafini [the actor who plays Kieran] enters his dressing room, and is killed again.“The fourth season would then follow the meta-approach where the actors themselves are targeted.


Scream: The TV series‘obligation not to use Ghostface was a way in which the series tried to differentiate itself from the film’s knowledge. Although fans in general might have felt indecisive about the direction of the program, many have since commented on their desire to have a sequel to seasons 1 and 2, as opposed to the reboot. Register also revealed that a crossover concept was being considered, where there would be a connection between the events of the show and those from the films. Asked why these plans were not reviewed by the network, Gans states that “the drama director at MTV thought the audience would feel it was a betrayal because they had fallen in love with these characters. “

The success of the latest movie episode suggests that Scream is still able to be fresh in the eyes of the audience. With Gans and Registers ideas for the sequel to their series, it’s interesting to think about why MTV felt fans would not enjoy it when so many had asked for something else, and because they love the movies so much. Considering that the latest Scream the film managed to set up its future, maybe fans will decide they want a revival of Gans and Registers material.
