The killer was unmasked at the end of SCREAM’s first season. It turned out that Piper, the daughter of Brandon James and Emma’s mother Maggie, had been targeting Emma and her friends/loved ones because she was angry that her half-sister got the life she always wanted. After nearly killing Emma, Piper was shot and killed by both Audrey and Emma. Now, three months later, Emma is finally returning to Lakewood after a period of healing.
Naturally, because this is SCREAM, that healing period won’t last, because there are many more secrets yet to be revealed. For example, was Audrey actually working with Piper as the end of season 1 indicated? And — more importantly — who is behind the newest rash of killings in town? The show will be introducing six new regular or recurring characters in season 2 and we have to wonder how each of them will add to the town’s mysteries (read about them here).
Watch the first seven minutes of the new season below. SCREAM returns for its second season tonight (May 30) at 11:00 p.m. ET on MTV.
