It looks like MTV's Scream will live to slash another day!
The cable network announced at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour that the small screen adaptation of the hit horror series has been renewed for a second season!
The series is set in a suburban high school filled with a bunch of articulate, horror-obsessed teenagers who get butchered one-by-one by a masked killer.
In the spirit of the original 1996 film, this satire deconstructs the emerging genre of horror in television, while maintaining an appropriate balance of MTV-approved teen drama!

Unlike genre favorite American Horror Story, Scream will not be an anthology series — meaning the characters (that survive season one) will continue on to next season in the same story!
Depending how patient you are, that could be a good or bad thing — Pretty Little Liars fans know what we mean.
With the series renewed for another season, the killer's identity probably won't be revealed anytime soon — but that means we get to see more beloved characters get brutally murdered by an ominous masked figure for another season!
Scream airs Tuesdays at 10 pm on MTV!
