Scream 6: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Horror Movie

When it comes to some of the most iconic horror movie villains, I have many that regularly come to mind, whether it’s the infamous Michael Myers of the Halloween seriesor maybe even Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street. However, since the late 90s and now into the 2020s, we have a new horror icon that has really taken over, and that’s Ghostface from the legendary film series, Scream.

When it comes to Scream, there have already been five films for horror fans, all delivering a good time, with the most recent releasing in January 2022 featuring both series veterans and newcomers alike. However, Cry 6 is just around the corner, and I’m sure if you’re a horror fan like me, you’re already counting the days. Here are six quick things we know about the upcoming sequel.

Scream 6 is set to release on March 31, 2023.

While it took more than ten years for the fifth sequel, soberly titled Screamdebut in 2022, I can say with pleasure that we will not have to wait long for Scream 6. It will not be broadcast on any 2022 movie release schedulebut the movie is will hit theaters in 2023.

According Deadlineit was confirmed that Cry 6 is set to release on March 31, 2023, which, if you think about it, is very soon in the grand scheme of things. 2022 has already been filled to the brim with horror movies, like the bloody A24 Horror Movie, x, or the Blumhouse Horror Movie, black phone, and we get more like Body Body Body, and the last Halloween after, Halloween ends. But to hear that the Scream the franchise is coming back so soon is great news.

Neve Campbell will not return for season 6

However, despite the fact that Cry 6 comes sooner than we all thought, there is sad news, namely the fact that the face of the Scream series, and a queen of screams himself, Neve Campbell, won’t be coming back for Cry 6, according to the previous Deadline article.

In a statement she released at the time of her departure from the show, Campbell said it was all about a financial issue and the offer she received was not what she felt she deserved:

Unfortunately, I won’t be doing the next Scream movie. As a woman, I had to work extremely hard in my career to establish my worth, especially when it came to Scream, I felt the offer presented to me did not match the value I brought to the franchise. It was a very difficult decision to move on. To all my Scream fans, I love you. You have always been incredibly supportive. I am forever grateful to you and what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years.

It’s a shame that an era like this ended this way, but I wish Neve Campbell the best.

However, Courteney Cox, Melissa Barrera and more are returning for the sequel.

Even so, despite the fact that Neve Campbell left Cry 6, several other names from previous films have signed on, including series veteran Courteney Cox, according to Variety. In an interview with the outlet, she was happy to confirm that she would be back for the sequel:

I’m not dead so yes you will see me. Gale is quite strong. She can never [die]but who knows!

Don’t tease me with those words, Cox! I need Gale to survive another episode, shit.

In other casting news, according to Deadline, Cry 5 veterans Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding and Jenna Ortega are all set to return.

Since many of these actors rose to prominence in Hollywood last year – like Jenna Ortega in horror movie, x, and Melissa Barrera in hers Netflix Survival Series, keep breathing, it’s exciting to see them all return for the next sequel to this incredible horror franchise.

Other names associated with the sixth episode are Hayden Panettiere, Dermot Mulroney, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra and Henry Czerny.

Samara Weaving and Tony Revolori have joined the Scream family

Even though we have some familiar faces returning for the new sequel, that doesn’t change the fact that new people are also coming to Scream 6. Two of them are Samara Weaving and Tony Revolori, according to Deadline.

These two actors made themselves known in their own way. Samara Weaving is familiar with horror movies, as one of her biggest hits, Ready or Not, was a horror-comedy explosion. She also had roles in movies like Akimbo Firearms alongside Daniel Radcliffe, and Three billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri. Tony Revolori has appeared in films such as The Grand Budapest Hotel, and in the recent Spider Man franchise under the Flash Thompson name.

Scream 6 will take place in New York

We’re not going to be in Woodsboro anymore. According Bloody disgustingit was confirmed that Cry 6 will take place in a whole new neighborhood – the famous city of New York.

Although this is not the first time that the Scream series moved outside of Woodsboro – as Cry 2 took place at Windsor College in Ohio, it’s the first time in years that the Ghostface murders have come out of the infamous city.

There have been great horror movies filmed in the Big Apple – like American Psycho – and some less great ones – like Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan – but i hope that Cry 6 will fall on the right side of this line.

Scream 6 is filming from June 2022

Finally, be enthusiastic, because from June 2022, Cry 6 is filming and in production, according to Murphy’s Multiverse. Photos taken from the set in Montreal, Canada tease the horror franchise’s new location, and hopefully we’ll see more of it soon.

What excites you most about this horror franchise? Who do you want to see as the next cry queen of Cry 6? Either way, there’s no denying that the next sequel is highly anticipated, and I’ll be counting the days until I get to see a trailer.
