What’s on TV Monday: ‘Scream’ and ‘Chasing the Moon’

SCREAM: RESURRECTION 9 p.m. on VH1. When this television adaptation of Wes Craven’s horror franchise debuted in 2015, critics argued that the story didn’t pack the same punch on the small screen. Some said the series lacked novelty and that the Ghostface killer doesn’t send chills down your spine over 10 drawn-out episodes. Season 3 brings the show from MTV to VH1 and packs terror in three two-hour episodes airing over three nights. The unlucky protagonist is Deion (RJ Cyler), a high school jock in Atlanta who is haunted by the death of his brother and by a mysterious killer who is sending him eerie messages. After Deion lands in detention, he and a few classmates form the “Deadfast Club” and set out to find the man behind the mask. As in previous seasons, “Resurrection” offers plenty of meta references: One character plainly states, “We’re in a horror movie.” Another says, “This here is a reboot, and reboots don’t play by your rules.”

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: CHASING THE MOON 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). This month marks the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. To celebrate, “American Experience” is airing this new three-part documentary series about the space race. Using archival footage, it recounts the political motives and personal drama that led to Neil Armstrong’s momentous small step and highlights lesser-known players, including Poppy Northcutt, the first woman to work as an engineer in NASA’s mission control room, and Ed Dwight, an Air Force pilot who was the first African-American man to train as an astronaut.
