Aunty Mary lands another prominent acting role since her first role in Grammy-nominated film, “Mudbound.” Mary J. Blige joins the cast of MTV’s hit horror series Scream. The “Real Love” singer will play Sherry Elliot, the mother of lead character Deion Elliot, played by RJ Cyler. Other cast members include Keke Palmer, Tyler Posey, Tyga, Giorgia Whigham, Jessica Sula, C.J. Wallace and Giullian Yao Gioiello.
The third season of Scream will focus on Deion whose tragic past comes back to haunt him. As the star running back for his high school football team, the repercussions threaten both his plans for the future and the lives of his friends.
The show produced by Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere and Yaneley Arty has been delayed to return later this year. It will also run as a three-night, six-episode event, decreasing from the 12 episode run in previous seasons.
