The new Scream trailer gives fans a better look at the upcoming TV series based on the hit teen slasher franchise.
The network premiered the trailer at its upfront presentation in New York today. In it, we hear a vaguely familiar-sounding voiceover guy talking through the reasons audiences keep coming back for Scream, even though we have an idea of what to expect by now. “Sure the reason you watch is because you fell in love with the characters, but maybe, deep down, you know the reason you keep coming back is to watch them die,” he accuses at the end.
Take a look at the not-so-typical trailer below:
According to the network, the series picks up when a cyber-bullying incident results in a brutal murder. The shocking violence stirs up memories of a killing spree from the past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just inspired a new killer. A group of teens – with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart – become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood.
Scream premieres Tuesday, June 30th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
Do you think this series will fare better than the recently canceled Eye Candy?
