“Scream,” “Van Helsing” Score Renewals

MTV has announced that they’ve renewed their “Scream” TV series for a shortened third season run of six episodes. New showrunners will take over for the third season, the third such replacement for the show.

The order comes ahead of a two-hour Halloween special on October 18th which moves the show’s setting, so it’s unclear if this will follow the show’s original plan of becoming an anthology.

The new comes as Syfy has renewed its new action-horror series “Van Helsing” for a second season. The series, which premiered last month, will return for 13 all-new episodes with production to begin in January.

In the series after a catastrophic volcano eruption, the last remaining underground vampires rise up through a dark, ash-filled sky to overtake America. Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), a descendant of the legendary line of vampire hunters, awakens from a three-year coma to discover that she’s not only immune to the bloodthirsty predators – but also has the ability to make them human again.
