As we previously reported back in March, MTV’s “Scream” television series is being completely rebooted, and we have another update on the future of the show.

THR reports that none of the original stars from the first two seasons will be returning for the six-episode third season of “Scream”, but new faces to appear in the show include Brett Matthews (The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural) has been tapped as Scream’s latest showrunner. Additionally, Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty are on board as executive producers via Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment banner.

The third season “will feature a brand-new cast, new location and a largely new creative team as the story is poised to become less white,” says THR.

Harvey and Bob Weinstein executive produce under the Dimension TV production umbrella. Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley, Marianne Maddalena and Cathy Konrad also executive produce. Matthew Signer and Keith Levine are producers.
