Who's ready for a scream? After years (years) of waiting and wondering if this horror movie-inspired TV series would ever see the light of day, it looks like we have our answer: Yes, yes it will. The Scream television series is officially back, and it looks like we're finally getting a third season with a new cast, new plot, and familiar "ghost face."

  • Scream: Resurrection is the official name of the rebooted TV series that mixes old with new.

    The Hollywood Reporter notes the third season will feature six episodes shown over three days (two hours per night). It looks like VH1 is now the new home of the teen drama as MTV has since parted ways with the series.

    The outlet notes Scream: Resurrection the season will center around football star Deion Elliot (RJ Cyler) "whose tragic past comes back to haunt him and threaten his hard-earned plans for the future -- and the lives of his unlikely group of friends."

  • We'll see a number of familiar faces.

    Paris Jackson (yes, Michael's daughter), Keke Palmer, Tyler Posey, Mary J. Blige, and Tyga (yes, Kylie Jenner's ex) are just some of the people attached to this project. It will be cool to see Keke running around terrified again as the previous horror show she was on, Scream Queens, got canceled some time ago.

  • And voices, too.

    Ghostface! Long time no see, buddy.

    Anyone who watched the MTV Scream TV show knows this is the first time we're seeing the original mask back in action since the horror movies. Even Roger Jackson, who voiced Ghostface in the movies, is a part of this TV reboot.

  • While we'll never know what happens in the original Scream series, we're willing to give this one a try.

    Scream: The TV Series ran for two seasons on MTV. (You can still watch it on Netflix.) It centered around Emma Duval (Willa Fitzgerald), her family (well, her mom), and the small, fictitious town of Lakewood plagued by the memory of Brandon James that won't go away.

  • Scream: Resurrection will premiere on VH1 on July 8 at 9 p.m. ET.

    As much as we kinda want some closure to the previous series (who took on the Brandon James mask?), we're willing to give this a try.

    Plus, it looks scary-ish.
