All Three Seasons of the ‘Scream’ Television Series Are Leaving Netflix in August

Netflix just released their August 2023 plans this morning, including the new films and television shows that are arriving next month as well as the ones that are leaving Netflix.

On that note, all three seasons of the “Scream” TV series are leaving Netflix on August 31, 2023, so you’ve got just over a month to play catch up on the small screen slasher saga.

Twenty nine episodes aired across the three seasons of the “Scream” series, with the first two seasons telling one story and the third season rebooting the series with a new tale. Notably, the first two seasons featured a new mask, while Season 3 brought back the Ghostface mask.

Luiz H.C. explains, “At the time, Scream 4 seemed like a pretty definitive end for the franchise, providing Sidney Prescott with a second round of closure and riffing on all of the (then) recent trends in horror media. Of course, no matter how satisfying they may be, endings are always bittersweet, so fans were understandably bummed that this would be the last we’d ever see of good old Ghostface. That’s why it makes sense that folks were ecstatic when MTV announced that they were producing a televised follow-up to Scream, Wes Craven’s iconic horror franchise.”

Luiz continues, “When Scream: The TV Series premiered back in 2015, many fans were outraged by MTV’s reimagining of the beloved franchise and its questionable creative decisions. First of all, the series ditched the iconic Ghostface mask due to legal complications, replacing it with a bizarre lookalike inspired by a deformed in-universe killer. Second, the show itself was more of a teen drama than a slasher-inspired meta experience, letting several episodes go by without any kills and not really taking advantage of the television format to comment on the medium.

“If you haven’t seen MTV’s Scream, the first couple of seasons follow high-schooler Emma Duval (Willa Fitzgerald) as she becomes the target of a masked serial killer known as the “Lakewood Slasher.” With law enforcement unable to identify the criminal, our leading lady and her friends decide to investigate the dirty secrets of Lakewood for themselves, casting suspicion on Emma’s loved ones and frenemies as this small town is confronted with its sins.

“Unfortunately, after consistent fan backlash and low ratings, MTV decided to completely re-imagine the show instead of concluding Emma’s story. This led to a six-episode mini-series in the form of Scream: Resurrection, a curious attempt at transforming the show into a horror anthology. Featuring a new showrunner and a brand-new cast, Resurrection was certainly a different take on the source material, but it wasn’t necessarily a better one.”

Luiz wrote in his review, “While neither of MTV’s attempts at adapting the Scream franchise to the small screen could even hope to compare to Craven and Williamson’s beloved creations, I’d argue that they’re a lot better than most fans seem to remember. I mean, if you can separate them from the movies, the first couple of seasons of Scream are just harmless teen-oriented fun with a horror-loving twist, and you have to give props to Resurrection for trying something new with a familiar premise.”

You can stream all three seasons of “Scream” on Netflix now.
