In March 2023, Scream 6 will bring Ghostface back to the big screen, and filming may start as soon as now. Following the box office success of this year’s outstanding requel Scream, it was reported in February 2022 that a new Scream film will be made, with the same creative team returning behind the scenes.
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are directing, while James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick co-wrote the story. Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein, and William Sherak are producing, with Scream author Kevin Williamson serving as an executive producer.
The sixth film saw a new Ghostface unleashed on an innocent bunch of youngsters, with the original trio of Sidney, Dewey, and Gale attempting to save them all. It was a stand-alone story, but that doesn’t rule out the possibility that it will have a significant impact on the sequel.
Only continue on if you’ve seen Scream to get a sense of what we may expect from Scream 6 and all you need to know.
Release Date For Scream 6
According to Deadline, Scream 6 will hit theatres on March 31, 2023, and the sixth instalment will be shot in the summer of 2022.
Longtime fans may recall that “Scream 2” was rushed into production after the first film’s theatrical premiere, with the first film opening in December 1996 and the sequel following in December the following year (via IMDb).
Using the momentum of a popular slasher has several advantages. Although “Scream 2” did not wow audiences as much as its predecessor, critics were better informed about what they were seeing and what to expect in the immediate aftermath of the original’s innovative take on the slasher.
The sequel has the highest reviewer score in the “Scream” franchise, with an 81 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The utilisation of multiple “Scream” legacy characters is without a doubt a big part of what makes the new sequel so appealing to original fans.
While “Scream” 2022 conforms to the original premise, it also introduces a plethora of new characters (both masked and unmasked), and many are wondering how many of these survivors will return in the sequel.
Cast for Scream 6
The most recent instalment of the Scream franchise was a bit of a reboot. While the previous cast was brought back, a new cast of characters was introduced to carry the flame forward. The original gang was still important to Scream’s plot, but we can see them becoming less so as the franchise progresses.
So far, we know Courtney Cox will resume her role as Gale Weathers, the renowned reporter. There’s no news on whether or not our original scream queen, Neve Campbell, will make an appearance, but we believe she will. Campbell was asked about returning in February 2022, but she wanted to read the script first.

Hayden Panettiere, who played Kirby Reed in Scream 4, is scheduled to reprise his role. While it appeared that she might not have survived at the end of Scream 4, her fate was finally revealed in Scream ten years later. Her first feature film role in eight years will be in this film. Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, and Jenna Ortega, the most recent survivors, will be joining her.
Scream 6 plot
At this moment, everything about Scream 6 is a guess. There wasn’t a clear set-up at the end of Scream, but there never has been in this series.
We may see Sidney and Gale taking a backseat to the newer cast members, but according to a Fandom interview with Bettinelli-Olpin, this isn’t the case. He remarked “We think about it more now that we have more family members. Whatever is appropriate for the following one is appropriate for us.”
“We’d love to collaborate with Courteney and Neve again. That was an incredible experience, and they were just amazing throughout.”
Given Sam’s paternal link to the original Scream, we’re very convinced we’ll be seeing a lot more of Sam and Tara Carpenter.
There will be some meta-comedy based on modern horror cliches, as is customary. “Requels,” “obsessive fandoms,” and “elevated terror” were among the targets of the fifth film. So where does Scream 6 fit in? Perhaps “requel sequels” – albeit they’ll have to come up with a catchier name for that.
Is there a new trailer for Scream 6?
No, a trailer for Scream 6 is still a long way off. Scream 6 isn’t set to begin filming until early summer 2022, thus the best case scenario for a teaser would be fall 2022.
