My favorite horror series is returning soon and we finally have new details about MTV’s highly anticipated Scream season 2, set to premiere on May 31st!
After the reveal of the first killer during the finale of Scream season 1, we were left with questions regarding the involvement of Audrey and the identity of killer #2. MTV states that the second season will bring Emma back to Lakewood after departing for a retreat, however those close to her have doubts that she has been able to completely move on from the trauma she endured by her psychotic half-sibling. My two favorite characters, Brooke and Jake, have finally solidified their blossoming relationship as a committed and perfect pair – but behind her controlling father’s back.
The supposed serial killer specialist Noah has continued to seek out answers about the unknown second killer, hot on the trail of the masked murderer. Meanwhile, Audrey works hard to cover up whatever her involvement was in Piper’s quest and someone begins to blackmail her after learning the truth about Audrey. Despite not mentioning their specified plot details, we will also see the return of another favorite character Kieran, and the questionable mother of Emma known as Maggie/Daisy.
Scream has found some new blood for season 2, enlisting a few new cast members to join the murder mystery. The new characters include:
- Kiana Ledé (ZOE – Series Regular)– a fellow high school student, Zoe is a driven overachiever who harbors a secret. Credits include: Republic Records Recording Artist
- Santiago Segura (GUSTAVO ACOSTA – Series Regular) – A high school student, Gustavo is dark and brooding. An outsider, observing from the sidelines, he’s a skilled artist who’s deeply into horror, serial killers and comic books. Credits include: 47 Meters Down and “Silicon Valley.”
- Sean Grandillo (ELI – Recurring) – Eli is Kieran’s (Amadeus Serafini) cousin. He presents as squeaky clean image, but may have ulterior motives. Credits include: “Spring Awakening” – Broadway Company.
- Anthony Ruivivar (SHERIFF MICHAEL ACOSTA – Recurring) – An outspoken, competent and experienced cop, Sherrif Acosta returns to Lakewood, where he grew up. He is a devoted, if sometimes strict, family man who’s very protective of his son, Gustavo. Credits include: “Banshee” and “American Horror Story.”
- Austin Highsmith (KAREN LANG – Recurring) – A young, idealistic high school psychology teacher who becomes a confidant and mentor to her students. Credits include: “Murder in the First” and “Criminal Minds.”
- Karina Logue (TINA HUDSON – Recurring) – Tina’s proper and polite, but with a grifter’s sense of self-reliance. Credits include: “Ray Donovan” and “Bates Motel.”
I have a strong feeling Scream is going to up-the-ante with double the death and more anxiety over the survival of our favorites (good luck to Jake, Brooke and Kieran!) Make sure to prepare for Scream season 2, and keep up with PopWrapped for more coverage on the horror series as details emerge!
