Ahead of its Halloween special next week, the Scream television series has been renewed for a third season by the network that broadcasts it - MTV.

Though this is great news for fans, it has also been confirmed that the third season will only consist of six episodes, leading some to believe this season will be the series' last.

Another big change comes in the form of the crew behind the show, with showrunners Michael Gans and Richard Register leaving the show just a year after they replaced the show's original bosses, Jill E. Blotevogel and Jaime Paglia.

MTV and producers The Weinstein Company are still looking for new showrunner(s).

The two-hour Scream Halloween special airs in the US on MTV on Tuesday, October 18 and is expected to come to Netflix in the UK soon after.
