The third season of MTV’s Scream will add the Candyman himself, Tony Todd, to the cast.
According to Bloody Disgusting, Todd will be one of the show’s new cast members, though his role is unknown at this time. Best known for playing the titular character in the Candyman trilogy, Todd is no stranger to the kind of horror stories that the next season of Scream will provide. The season will center around Deion Elliot, a running back whose past comes back to threaten not only his future as a football star, but also the lives of the people around him.

The reboot of the 1990s smash-hit horror Scream, the first two seasons of the show centered around a grisly series of murders in the town of Lakewood. However, the upcoming third season, which will last for six episodes, will be set in an entirely new location with a completely different cast of characters. Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty have joined the show as executive producers, while Brett Matthews will serve as the showrunner for the season.
The third season of MTV’s Scream, starring Tyler Posey, Mary J. Blige, Keke Palmer, Giorgia Whigham, Jessica Sula, CJ Wallace, Giullian Yao Gioiello, Tyga, RJ Cyler and Tony Todd, is currently filming.
