MTV Adds Keke Palmer, RJ Cyler, and More to Scream Season 3 Cast



Back in July it was announced that Tyga (aka Michael Ray Stevenson) and C.J. Wallace (the son of The Notorious B.I.G. and Faith Evans) had signed on for Season 3 of MTV’s “Scream”; and now the cast has been filled out with Keke Palmer (“Scream Queens”), RJ Cyler (“I’m Dying Up Here”), Giorgia Whigham (“13 Reasons Why”), Jessica Sula (“Recovery Road,” “Skins”), and Giullian Yao Gioiello (“Julie’s Greenroom”).

The third season’s six episodes are planned as a three-night “event” that will take place sometime in March of next year.  Per THR, this season focuses on Cyler’s Deion Elliot, a local star running back whose tragic past comes back to haunt him at the worst time, threatening his hard-earned plans for his future — and the lives of his unlikely group of friends. Deion hopes to secure a college football scholarship that will take him far away from Atlanta, a plan that seems destined to fail when he becomes the target of a masked killer with ties to his past.

Palmer (pictured below) will play Kym, a bold and beautiful social activist with a big heart and zero patience for suffering fools. When Kym and her friends find themselves hunted by a killer, she works to flip the script and survive at any cost.

Whigham will play Beth, the resident Goth girl and a local tattoo artist. As an unapologetic fan of horror films, Beth is outspoken about her encyclopedic knowledge of movie murder — which comes in handy with a killer on the loose.

Sula will portray Liv, the new girl at school. As a member of the cheer squad and an honor roll student, she seems to have a good head on her shoulders and an ideal life. But as she and Deion grow closer amid the murder and mayhem, it soon becomes clear that she has just as many secrets as everyone.

Gioiello rounds out the cast as Manny, an openly gay and loyal kid who is often smartest person in the room. But his wits are put to the test when he suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of a killer — which makes his simple goal of surviving high school and moving on with his life seem impossible.

As revealed previously, Tyga takes on the role of Jamal, Deion’s step-brother. Despite hanging out with a rough crowd, he’s got a big heart and an undying loyalty to Deion. Wallace portrays Amir, a good kid whose strict parents expect him to keep clean during high school, stay away from girls, and ultimately find his place within the family business.

Brett Matthews (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Supernatural”) serves as showrunner and exec produces alongside Queen Latifah, Shakim Conpere, and Yaneley Arty for Flavor Unit Entertainment. They join original exec producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein for Dimension TV, the late Wes Craven, Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena, and Cathy Konrad.

Expect an announcement of the exact premiere date soon.
