Teen Wolf Season 3 Trailer Reveals A Pack Of Problems For Scott
In just a matter of weeks, MTV will bring their popular supernatural drama series Teen Wolf back for its third season. The series' venture further and further away from its source material hasn't exactly been gradual, but never has the drama looked more like a horror than in the latest trailer, which gives us a look at Season 3 and what young Scott is up against. A pack of alphas!
Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous Premieres On MTV Thursday Night
Joining MTV's growing list of scripted series is Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous, a comedy from Dan Lagana and series star Bo Burnham. The series premieres Thursday night and stars Burnham as fresh-out-of-high school teen who's decided to forgo college in exchange for pursuing a life of fame and fortune. As you can see in the video above, that includes hiring a camera crew to follow him around.
Scream Pilot Gets A Green Light At MTV
Few franchises have more lasting power than a great horror series. For some reason, the genre just happens to lend itself really well for reboots, to varying degrees of quality, of course. Where will Scream fall among the ranks of reboots and sequels? After a (relatively) recent fourth installment to the film franchise, which brought star Neve Cambell back to the role of Sidney Prescott in 2011, MTV is looking to move forward with a TV version. The network once better associated with music, has given the green light to a one-hour pilot that will reinvent the horror-comedy Scream for the small screen.
MTV Cancels Buckwild Following Shain Gandee's Death
Following the sudden death of star Shain Gandee last week, MTV promptly canceled production on the second season of Buckwild, a "redneck Jersey Shore" reality show that featured yet another group of young people behaving badly in front of the camera. Gandee's death had no apparent connection to the show and was deemed an off-loading accident, but MTV knew they couldn't continue shoving the cameras in these kids faces as they handled a real tragedyÖ and now they've made the prudent decision to stop doing it entirely
Buckwild Suspends Production Following Shain Gandee's Death
Buckwild, a raucous backwoods alternative to The Jersey Shore, has run into real-life tragedy thanks to the unexpected death of one of its stars, 21-year-old Shain Gandee. While shows like this are pretty much tailor made for their cast to run into trouble, death is on a whole other plane, and understandably, MTV has decided they need to step back before figuring out how to keep the show going, if at all.
Why Doesn't MTV Play Music Videos Anymore? - Funny Video Explains
MTV doesn't play music videos anymore. This is nothing new, and yet people still complain about it. Personally, I can't imagine that MTV would play videos for music I listen to these days even if they did play videos day in and day out as they once did, so it's difficult to find it in myself to complain. Perhaps the gripe is that MTV is depriving kids of the same music video experience we had growing up. When you think about it, it isn't just music that's changed, it's the way kids get their music that's altered drastically.
VMA Ratings Drop Drastically From Last Year
It could be further evidence that nobody watches music videos anymore, or it could simply the be the result of an ill-advised move to a Thursday evening time slot, but MTVís video music awards took a major hit in the ratings compared to last year. The awards show was broadcast last night, a switch from its usual Sunday evening, to less than half the number of viewers who tuned in for the 2011 show.
Jersey Shore Season 6 Sets October Premiere Date
It's hard to even know what to say about Jersey Shore at this point-- we've all hated it, loved it, hated it again, then let it fade into the background along with most other pop culture detritus. Can a new season possibly have anything new to add? Will Snooki's pregnancy bring in an interesting new wrinkle?
MTV Developing A Found-Footage Mystery Pilot The Experiment
ABC may not have seen success with their found-footage horror series The River, with the drama eventually being passed over for a renewal after its first season, but it looks like MTV is taking a shot at the format with their own project, and The River executive producer Jason Blum, who's also among the producers for the Paranormal Activity films is involved.
Awkward Renewed For Season 3 With A Big Episode Order
Awkward's lead character Jenna may seem a bit less awkward in the series' second season, but the show remains amusing, clever and charming in all the right ways. So it's definitely good news to learn that not only will the scripted half-hour dramedy be back for a third season, but we'll also have even more Awkwardness for Season 3 as MTV has given it a supersized order.
MTV To Revive House Of Style
In its heyday, MTV was something of a trendsetter, presenting music and original programming to its youthful audience. The cable network has since grown up, and while shows like Awkward. and to some extent Teen Wolf give me hope that MTV has some creative juices left in it enough to deliver quality content with a more original feel to it, in addition to tapping into the British well for series it can remake (Skins, the upcoming Inbetweeners), the once music-focused channel has taken to digging through its own closet for dresses that might still fit. Recently, that includes Punk'd, Beavis and Butthead and coming soon, House of Style.
Teen Wolf Watch: Season 2, Episode 8 - Raving
With the recent announcement that Teen Wolf has been renewed for a third season (of double the episodes!), itís hard not to be overly excited about the show. Thankfully this week is back up to fan expectations following a shaky episode last week of mass confusion as the Kanima continues to run through the list of murderers needing to be brought to justice. Plus a main player might have been taken out of the game for good.
The Inbetweeners Preview: Trailer For MTV's Take On The U.K. Comedy Series
Since hearing that MTV was taking a chance on yet another remake of a popular young adult-focused British series, I took a look at The Inbetweeners, which is available streaming on Netflix. In addition to finding it to be pretty hilarious in a goofy guy-humor sort of way, I wondered how MTV's version would differ from the original, and whether the series would be worthy of the original on which it's based.
MTV's Teen Wolf Stalks Into Season 3
MTV has done a really good job of marketing its supernatural drama, Teen Wolf, during its first two seasons. Prior to the Season 2 premiere, 10 minutes of the first episode were available online. The show has also been all over Comic Con since its inception, and if you happened to be lucky enough to be in San Diego today, you were probably the first to hear the most recent news on the Teen Wolf front. Fans of Scott and his werewolf hunter girlfriend will be pleased to hear Teen Wolf will return for Season 3.
DirecTV Customers No Longer Have Comedy Central, Nickelodeon Or MTV
Thereís no clear winner in the stand off between DirecTV and Viacom, but there are plenty of losers, most specifically all of the serviceís subscribers who are now without Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Spike, BET, VH1 and others. The channels, seventeen in all, went dark at midnight EST last night, and for the time being, there seems to be no clear solution within reach.
