TCA: MTV Orders Second Season of 'Scream'

MTV said it's ordered a second season of Scream. The adaptation of the horror film series has, according to MTV, drawn a total of 21 million viewers and 7.9 million digital streams in its first season. MTV also said the Dimension Television show has gained 60% more viewers between its live plus same day and live plus three day Nielsen ratings. 

MTV's newly named executive vice president of series development and head of scripted programming Mina Lefevre said in a release: “It has been a wonderful experience working with Bob Weinstein and his team who are such connoisseurs of this genre and we are thrilled by how our viewers have responded to the reinvention of Scream. We look forward to another season filled with suspense, horror and more twists and turns.”

At the network's TV critics' tour presentation in Beverly Hills, it also showed clips from returning shows America’s Best Dance CrewAwkward and Faking It and said Finding Carter will return on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Lauren Dolgen, executive vice president of series development and head of reality programming, also said Ridiculousness will film two episodes from MTV headquarters in Times Square in New York with 50 Cent and Action Bronson as guests in August.
