MTV has renewed their series Scream for a third season… but with less episodes and new showrunners. The series adapted from the film series by Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson started off with a 10-episode first season and showrunners Jill Blotevogel and Jaime Paglia, who stepped down. The second season was approved and expanded to 12 episodes with showrunners Michael Gans and Richard Register. But the third season renewal has come with only a 6-episode order and word that Gans and Register will not be back. No new showrunners have been named. It's not known at this time if the third season will be the last.
There is some speculation that the show may become an anthology style series, but that also has not been confirmed.
