Scream QueensVH1 has renewed the reality show 'Scream Queens' for a second season, Variety is reporting.

This time, 10 potential queens will be competing in the horror film boot camp for a role in 'Saw VII 3D,' the next installment of the sanguinary, seemingly never-ending franchise. Season 1 winner Tanedra Howard won the role of Simone in 'Saw VI.' Some of last season's more interesting challenges included: "campy 'The Brain that Wouldn't Die'-inspired Bodiless Scene," "Final girl speech in a pool of blood" and "seductive vampiress scene."Scream QueensVH1 has renewed the reality show 'Scream Queens' for a second season, Variety is reporting.

Some of last season's more interesting challenges included: "campy 'The Brain that Wouldn't Die'-inspired Bodiless Scene," "Final girl speech in a pool of blood" and "seductive vampiress scene."

There will be changes next season, of course. Last week, James Gunn, the show's judge and director, announced that he would be leaving 'Scream Queens,' because his film 'Super' had just been greenlit for production. Gunn wrote on his blog, "Unfortunately, I have no choice but to choose one or the other, and my actual film career must come before my reality show film career." Horror director Tim Sullivan will replace Gunn in season 2. Another casting change will include the arrival of Jamie King, who will take over Shawnee Smith's role as mentor to the contestants.

"Horror films continue to dominate the pop culture landscape and are some of the biggest film franchises out there," said Jeff Olde, EVP Original Programming and Production at VH1. "Following the success of last season's winner Tanedra Howard in Saw VI, we're looking forward to working with Lionsgate to find the next great horror actress."

'Scream Queens' returns to VH1's lineup in 2010.

Let me just say that I watch this show and I am not ashamed (though I probably should be). I watch it because it's freaking hilarious, not for the nail-biting drama or hyper-realistic grueling acting conditions these brave girls have to endure blah blah blah. I know it's not real. But, again, it's fucking funny.
