Well that didnt take long, at all.
The horror drama’s brand-new chapter follows Dion (played by RJ Cyler), a football player who on track to score a college scholarship… until a masked killer uses his darkest secrets against him, turning his life upside down and making him question his own sanity.
Per THR.com, Posey — who also is back on Jane the Virgin this season, as the title character’s first love — will fill the series regular role of Shane, a drug-dealing, party-promoting high school dropout.
The cast for Scream‘s third season — which will not be connected to the first two — also includes Giorgia Whigham (13 Reasons Why) as Beth, a Goth girl who loves horror movies; Jessica Sula (Recovery Road) as Liv, a new girl who quickly develops a relationship with Deion; Giullian Yao Gioiello (Julie’s Greenroom) as Manny, an intelligent, openly gay student; Keke Palmer (Scream Queens) as Kym, a social activist with “zero patience for suffering fools”; rapper Tyga as Jamal, Deion’s loyal yet rough-around-the-edges stepbrother; and C.J. Wallace as Amir, a “socially awkward savant” who secretly aspires to have a music career.
A timetable for Scream Season 3 has yet to be announced.
