In 1996, audiences were scared by a new killer in a mask: Ghostface, the horror-savvy, a flailing killer at the center of the Scream series. Unlike Jason, Michael Myers, and Freddy Krueger, it’s not a person but a title that crazy movie fans pass on to new generations.
The fifth Scream movie was released in theatres earlier this year. It was a huge success, making over $140 million worldwide and getting good reviews, which is no small feat considering how much people were looking forward to its scares and current, witty commentary.
As a follow-up to 2022’s “Requel,” Scream moves events to New York City and brings back new favorites like Jenna Ortega’s Tara. But we won’t see two of the Ogs on the show. Only Courteney Cox will be back.
Fans will be able to watch Scream six soon. So, here’s what we know so far about the sequel, from its release date and trailer to its cast, plot, and other details:
Scream 6: Release Date
Now, Scream 6 will come out on March 10, 2023. It was supposed to come out at the end of the month, but Paramount Pictures moved it up three weeks.
Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are back to direct Scream 6, with a script written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick.

Scream 6: Cast
We have to start with the biggest news, which is that Neve Campbell will not be back as Sidney Prescott.
She said that “truly” the decision came down to “negotiation” problems. She said, “I didn’t think what they were offering me matched the value I bring to this franchise and have brought to this franchise for 25 years.”
“As a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued.” I honestly don’t think that if I were a man and had made five parts of a huge blockbuster series over the course of 25 years, I would be offered the same amount as a man.
“And I just couldn’t do that in my heart.” “I couldn’t walk on set feeling like that, like I was being undervalued and that it wasn’t fair.”
But Courteney Cox will be back as Gale Weathers, and Melissa Barrera and Jenna Ortega will be back as Sam and Tara Carpenter, the leads of the fifth movie. Mindy and Chad Meeks-Martin, Randy’s niece and nephew, are also back from the last movie. They are played by Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding. Roger Jackson will definitely come back as Ghostface’s voice.
There’s also some news that might make losing Sidney a little less painful. In the new movie, Hayden Panettiere plays the role of Kirby Reed again. Directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, and writers James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, will all be back to work on the new Scream movie.
The New Scream Are Spider-Man star Tony Revolori, Samara Weaving, who used to be on “Home and Away,” Henry Czerny, Dermot Mulroney, Jack Champion, Josh Segarra, Liana Liberato, and Devyn Nekoda also in the cast?
Even though we may have seen them in action in the trailers, we still don’t know who they’re playing. In the fifth movie, Billy Loomis, played by Skeet Ulrich, made a surprise cameo appearance and was revealed to be Sam’s father. He is very much dead, though, and only shows up in her hallucinations. This doesn’t mean he won’t show up in the new movie, though.
David Arquette, who played Dewey Riley in Scream 2020 but won’t be appearing in Scream VI due to Ghostface’s brutal killing of him in the fifth film, is another actor who won’t be appearing. After a short cameo in 2020’s Scream, Heather Matarazzo could come back as Martha Meeks. Drew Barrymore, Matthew Lillard, and Jamie Kennedy also had voice cameos in that movie.
But not as their characters, Casey, Stu, and Randy, who are all dead in the Scream universe, right?
Scream 6: Plot
Scream Sam and Tara Carpenter will try to get away from Ghostface by moving to New York City with Chad and Mindy Meeks-Martin, who are twins. Unsurprisingly, things don’t go as planned when a Ghostface fan comes after them. Barrera told Collider that the new film could be “a hundred times scarier.” However, this is essentially all we know about the new film.
“There was a saying on set because Matt [Bettinelli-Olpin] and Tyler [Gillett] were always asking for more blood and sweat,” she said.
Even though Sidney won’t be in the sixth movie, Ortega has told fans that there will be “references” to her in it. Since Sam was Billy Loomis’s daughter in the first film, the last one seemed to make Barrera and Ortega the new main characters of the series.
This would make her an easy target, just like Sidney was for the first three books. Lucky for us, Scream didn’t take the obvious turn that would have turned Sam into a killer like her father, and we hope that any future movies will keep this approach.
“Our approach was that she has now come to terms with the fact that Billy is a part of her. And even though he will always be a part of her, she must now move on. Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who was also a co-director, told Fandom about it.
“We had a version of the movie where she was still medicating herself at the end, but we all thought it would be better if she didn’t.” We wanted it to feel like she’s not just back where she started, medicating away her past, and that she can now accept Billy as a part of who she is.
About the only thing we know for sure about the plot of a future movie right now is that it will poke fun at current horror and movie trends. Scream took on toxic fandom with “Requels,” so we’ll have to wait and see what happens after this time.
