Tyler Posey may have left Teen Wolf behind, but he's not leaving MTV behind just yet. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 25-year-old has been added to the cast of Scream Season 3

The horror drama's third season will be a complete reset with a brand new cast, location, and storyline. If the revamp is a success, future seasons will take on an anthology format. 

Posey is on board to play the series regular role of Shane who is described as a high school dropout who deals drugs and always has plans in place to make himself a nice sum of money. 

Teen Wolf wrapped its six-season run last night on the cable network.

The new iteration of Scream is set to follow the character of Deion Elliot who is trying to make it in the music industry, but his success is put on the line when a masked killer terrorizes him and those closest to him. 

It has already been revealed that Keke Palmer, Giorgia Whigham, Jessica Sula, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Tyga and C.J. Wallace will round out the rest of the cast for the six-part event series. 

Instead of airing weekly, the network has decided to air it across three nights in March. It's a tactic that was recently used for 12 Monkeys Season 3, and it means fans do not have to wait week-to-week to find out what happens next.

Scream Season 2 averaged fewer than 500,000 viewers per week, and it was widely expected to be canceled. With the new direction for the show, it means there will be no resolution for the remaining Lakewood teens. 

Did the real Brandon James find a way to cause drama amongst the group? It would be good if there were a news report or something to give us a little tidbit of information. 

Last week, it was revealed that the show would be using the Ghostface mask from the movies. That is great news because the one the show used initially was not that great.

Scream Quotes

Emma: Why did you hate me?
Audrey: You broke my heart! I loved you, okay, and you broke my heart. The worst part is, you didn't even know you were doing it.

Aww, you wanna come in the hot tub with me. Don't you, Sage? You can't go in the hot tub. That would be gross.
