When Wes Craven’s Scream came out in 1996, it was a big hit for the horror genre. Audiences really sparked to the way the film, at once, made fun of the genre’s tropes while also making them fun and new again. That film spawned three sequels, and a parody series of films (Scary Movie). Alas, the title continues to bare fruit. MTV is preparing to release Scream: The TV Series next month and, as such, has released a promo that sheds some light on the show’s tone.

What starts as a YouTube video going viral, soon leads to problems for the teenagers of Lakewood and serves as the catalyst for a murder that opens up a window to the town’s troubled past.

Scream: The TV Series will premiere on MTV on June 30.
