Inspired from the 1996’s popular slasher film, Scream Season 3 was expected to release in 2017. Although, even after two long years, fans are still waiting for the show to premiere. ‘Scream Season 3’ was destined to hit the screens soon after the end of the second installment. However, due to the feud between the distributors, the premiere delayed for as long as 2019.
After its initial release in 2015, the showrunners brought us a successful second season. A few days ahead of its conclusion, Scream’s production company, MTV renewed the series for Season 3. Later in April 2017, the slasher series was made a ‘reboot’ of the original film. Thus, the third installment will have an entirely different story, unlike the previous two seasons.
The delay became a reason for fans to worry about the premiere of the show. This lead to the rumor of its cancellation. Several viewers started believing that the series has been axed and has little chances of release. However, such speculations need to be dismissed as there is no official announcement of the same.
