wants a whole new "Scream."

The network wants to overhaul the horror TV series with a new cast and storyline for its upcoming third season , Deadline reports.

MTV ordered a six-episode third season last fall, despite flagging ratings. The second season averaged 377,000 viewers in Live+same day, half of what season 1 drew. Still, the network remains committed to "Scream," and the studio, Dimension TV, is looking for a new showrunner who can provide a new take on the show, which itself is a reimagination of the film franchise. It's unlikely that events and characters from seasons 1 and 2 would be incorporated or even mentioned.

Cast members from seasons 1 and 2 have reportedly been given permission to seek other work, and star Willa Fitzgerald has booked the Fox pilot "Behind Enemy Lines."
