Scream in the cinema and on TV
The saga has so far five cinematic chapters: the first four were directed by Wes Craven , while the screenplays are almost all by Kevin Williamson (the creator of Dawson’s Creek ), apart from the third film, written by Ehren Kruger . The fifth installment was instead directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett .
The franchise transitioned to the small screen in 2015, in an MTV series that ran for two seasons. A third season – actually unrelated to the previous two – aired in 2019 on VH1.
