Everything We Know So Far About ‘Scream 6’

The band is back together.

Hayden Panettiere will make a long awaited return in the upcoming Scream 6 film.

Directing trio Radio Silence has said that Scream 6 will find the survivors leaving Woodsboro to “start a fresh chapter“. Filming will start in June in Canada and the movie will have a March 2023 release date.

Background: Scream (2022), the meta slasher franchise’s first installment since Scream 4 (2011) has already surpassed the $100 million mark since its January 14 release. This is a big take considering Paramount took a risk and only released Scream in theaters during the Omicron surge. Radio Silence, the directing duo of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, will return to direct Scream 6 with James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick writing the script. This is the same team that brought us Scream (2022) and critical and audience reviews have been positive. The film has been characterized as “a love letter to horror fans” and currently holds a 3.5 rating on social film site Letterboxd where users wonder if “the real killer wasn’t the friends we made along the way.”

In the immortal words of Stu Macher, “you gotta have a sequel”.

Scream 6 cast and crew:

Kevin Williamson, legendary horror writer has signed on to executive produce the film.

Courtney Cox has signed on to reprise her role as Gale Weathers for the sixth time.

Melissa Barrera is returning as Sam Carpenter

Jenna Ortega is returning as Tara Carpenter

Jasmin Savoy Brown is returning as Mindy Meeks-Martin

Mason Gooding is returning as Mindy’s twin, Chad Meeks-Martin

Hayden Panettiere is making a long awaited return as fan-favorite character Kirby Reed.

Given the history of the franchise, David Arquette may have some kind of fun cameo from beyond his character’s grave.

Scream 6 release date:

Scream 6 will be in theaters March 31, 2023.

We’ll keep this space updated with casting, plot info, quotes from production, pics from filming and eventually trailers and release info as it becomes available. Check back!
