Scream: Season 1 (2015)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Lacking truly compelling characters or scenarios, Scream is forced to trade too heavily on nostalgia for its big-screen predecessors in the franchise.

Critic Reviews for Scream Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (19)

Partly due to formal inefficiency, partly due to an uneven focus, very little of the first episode of Scream works.

This show does what it is designed to do. It gives you cheap thrills, introduces some very attractive characters, and makes you wonder who exactly is killing all of these nice (read: really, really mean) teenagers

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Luxe environments mixed with bitchy teen entitlement and karmic vengeance drive Scream beyond its slasher-exploitation film genesis to a stylish metaphor about a new generation's excesses and mean-girl cruelty.

Top Critic

An incredibly MTV-in-2015 way to unravel a mystery: ridiculous, meme-obsessed, self-mocking, and fun if you don't think about it too much. Which basically sums up the first season of the network's Scream.

Sep 2, 2015 | Full Review…

MTV's television series based on the popular franchise has the same exact archly self-aware tone, but the novelty is long gone, and what we're left with is pointless homage.

Jul 6, 2015 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Right from the first scene there's a unique energy to the piece. It doesn't feel like a knock-off or a cheap tie-in. It's a horror movie in weekly series form.

Jun 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Scream's ensemble are endearing in their own little world, but if you're watching episodes in between better shows, it's easy for them to fall flat.

Oct 3, 2019 | Full Review…

If the blend of CW or ABC Family teen nonsense and slasher appeals to you, then much of Scream the TV Series is itself good fun.

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

There was a lot to like about this premiere. It set up the storylines really well for the season, but at the same time it left a lot to be desired.

Aug 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5.0 | Full Review…

Trust me, no-one was more surprised than me find that I didn't just enjoy the new Scream, I actually think it's one of the best, most clever reboots I've ever seen.

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

What I know for sure is that the old, iconic Scream mask is gone, but the new one in place will give you chills.

Aug 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Scream: The TV Series is exactly what a reboot should be.

Audience Reviews for Scream: Season 1

    Waste of time, I am not a big crime thriller fan but even I knew who was the killer since episode 2, so obvious.

    Love seasons 1 and 2! You'll quickly get hooked and you'll be guessing until the end. Season 3 is trash.
  • Sep 10, 2019
    Does this stand up as a TV series? My thoughts are yes. I was pleasantly surprised with what the show had to offer and didn't end up being a 100% replica of the movie series. It walked a fine line of being similar but different and I think that's what people were hoping for. I'll just say I ended up calling a few things but they didn't come to fruition until Season 2. It's a fun show that I'd almost recommend watching with someone else so you can play detective and spit theories back and forth. For the few bad qualities this show has, the good outweighs them.

    Damm this season so good!

    Started watching, expected something thrilling but couldn't listen to the poor writing anymore. The killer moves and kills as if he would have super powers. It was suposed to be scary but in the end it was just bad.

    I loved everything about this entire series
  • Jan 26, 2019
    While I personally thought season 2 was the better of the two, season 1 was still pretty well done. The guessing of "whodunit" that makes scream unique was there. Some of the characters were weak, but Noah and Audrey more than made up for less compelling characters

    I really enjoyed this tv series.
  • Sep 28, 2018
    Gripping - from start till end.

    Scream The Tv Series, has a great cast, but some parts of the plot, are filled and do not make much sense.
