Keke Palmer (Scream Queens) has landed a starring role on the forthcoming third installment of MTV's Scream.
The latest cast additions also include: RJ Cyler (I'm Dying Up Here), Giorgia Whigham (13 Reasons Why), Jessica Sula (Recovery Road, Skins) and Giullian Yao Gioiello (Julie's Greenroom).
You may read their character descriptions below:
Cyler will star as Deion, who hopes to secure a college football scholarship that will take him far away from Atlanta, a plan that seems destined to fail when he becomes the target of a masked killer with ties to his past.
Whigham will play Beth, the resident goth girl and a local tattoo artist. As an unapologetic fan of horror films, Beth is outspoken about her encyclopedic knowledge of movie murder — which is sure to come in handy with a killer on the loose.
Palmer — also a series regular on Epix drama Berlin Station — will play Kym, a bold and beautiful social activist with a big heart and zero patience for suffering fools. When Kym and her friends find themselves hunted by a killer, she works to flip the script and survive at any cost.
Sula will portray Liv, the new girl at school. As a member of the cheer squad and an honor roll student, she seems to have a good head on her shoulders and an ideal life. But as she and Deion grow closer amid the murder and mayhem, it soon becomes clear that she has just as many secrets as everyone else.
Gioiello rounds out the cast as Manny, an openly gay and loyal kid who is often the smartest person in the room. But his wits are put to the test when he suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of a killer — which makes his simple goal of surviving high school and moving on with his life seem impossible.
Screams season 3 premieres in March on MTV.
