The Lakewood survivors (who manage to make it through the upcoming Halloween special) will return in a third season of MTV's Scream TV series.

Variety reports that Scream has been renewed for a shortened, six-episode third season. Current showrunners Michael Gans and Richard Register will not be at the helm for season 3, although the new showrunners have yet to be named. A premiere date for season 3 has also not been revealed at this time, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details.

In case you missed it, the Scream Halloween special will air on Tuesday, October 18th at 9:00pm ET. The two-hour special will pick up eight months after the blood-soaked events of the season 2 finale. Below, we have the official synopsis and trailer for the special, which looks to have an April Fool's Day meets Clue vibe.

"Just in time for Halloween, MTV unleashes a horrifying new 2-hour special that picks up eight months after Kieran’s (Amadeus Serafini) arrest. Emma (Willa Fitzgerald) is struggling to focus on her future and who she really is after everything that has happened. Meanwhile, Noah (John Karna) and Stavo (Santiago Segura) have combined forces to create a best-selling graphic novel based on the Kieran Wilcox murders and Audrey (Bex Taylor-Klaus) has found herself in a new relationship. Since the first anniversary of Piper's killing spree is upon us, Emma and her friends are determined to be as far from Lakewood as possible and Stavo has the perfect solution. He and Noah are researching for their next graphic novel, a Lizzy Borden-esque legend on Shallow Grove Island, and suggest the rest of the group come along for the weekend. Just when they thought they were safe, the Lakewood survivors find themselves in another bloody standoff, leaving them to wonder – is an old legend coming back to life or has murder followed them from Lakewood?” Could there be more “Scream” to come?…"
