MTV's Teen Wolf has officially come to an end after six seasons, and fans had to say goodbye to star Tyler Posey as pack leader Scott McCall. Luckily for those who were sure to miss seeing him on the small screen, Tyler Posey has already landed a new TV gig, and fans won't even need to change networks to catch him in his fresh role. Posey has joined the cast of MTV's Scream for its upcoming third season.
Tyler Posey will play a character by the name of Shane, who dropped out of high school and went down a pretty shady path. After leaving high school, Shane became a drug dealer and party promoter who is more than willing to work a hustle if that's what it takes to turn a profit. Shane is more than what he seems, however, and there's a lot going on beneath his hustler outer shell. THR reports that Shane will be a series regular role, so we can count on seeing plenty of Posey in Scream Season 3.
You don't necessarily need to have watched the first two seasons of Scream to be ready to see Tyler Posey as Shane in Season 3. Although Seasons 1 and 2 of Scream followed the same set of kids in the same areas, the show is being rebooted into an anthology for the third season. The next batch of episodes will stand on their own, independent of everything that happened before on the show.
Season 3 of Scream will revolve around a star high school running back named Deion Elliot, who will be played by RJ Cyler. Deion has big dreams of what his future can hold, but he has a tragic past that could ruin his best plans if it comes back to haunt him. He has an unlikely group of friends who will be affected by his past as well. The rest of the Scream Season 3 cast will be filled out by Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer of Scream Queens, Giorgia Whigham of 13 Reasons Why, Jessica Sula of Skins, Giullian Yao Gioiello of Julie's Greenroom, Tyga, and C.J. Wallace. Brett Matthews of The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural is on board as the new showrunner and executive producer.
The third season will run for six episodes, and MTV will air all six as a three-night event. This event won't kick off until March, so we have a while still to wait until we get to see Tyler Posey as Shane. If March feels like too long to wait for more Tyler Posey on television, he will appear on another show sooner rather than later. He is slated to recur on Season 4 of Jane the Virgin, which returns to The CW on Friday, October 13 at 9 p.m. ET.
