The “Scream” TV Series Mask Revealed

Last year we learned that MTV’s soon to premiere “Scream: The TV Series” will lose the iconic ‘ghost face’ mask of the film series in favor of something else. Today, EW has unveiled a first look photo of the new mask which has roots in not just the original but other serial killer masks like Jason Voorhies and Michael Myers.

Director Wes Craven, who created the original mask, says: “The new mask is cool and scary and takes the series into a new direction. It also ties into the story, which I won’t give away.” Executive producer Jaime Paglia says the reason for a different mask was because the new show doesn’t follow any characters from the original, so using it “would be misleading the audience”.
