Ghostface will appear in theatres once again in Scream 6. Given the success of the Scream remake, this is hardly surprising.
When it came time for Scream (or Scream 5, if you prefer), a fresh version of Ghostface unleashed his savagery on a new batch of naive teenagers.
However, Ghostface wasn’t the only recognizable face from the first film. Also returning to aid the teenagers was the original group of Sidney, Dewey, and Gale.
What happened in Scream was a self-contained drama, but it will have far-reaching consequences for the sequel. In light of that, here is everything we know (or may reasonably assume) about Scream 6.
Who is in Scream 6 and are they all coming back?
The sixth installment of the Scream franchise will reportedly feature the return of various characters from the fifth film, including fan-favorite Hayden Panettiere as Kirby (who was first introduced in Scream 4 and teased to be alive in the sequel).

The Story of Scream 6
Aside from the fact that four people who managed to escape Woodsboro after the Ghostface killings decide to start over somewhere else, not much is known about the plot of Scream 6.
Although this doesn’t offer us much to go on, we do know that New York City will be the setting for Scream 6. There have now been an equal number of films set in Woodsboro and other locations.
As the new faces of the brand, we can assume that Sam and Tara are among the survivors. All three can be deduced with little effort. Only Mindy and Chad Meeks, Randy’s niece and nephew, are still alive from their group of teenage friends.
Dermot Mulroney has joined the cast in the character of a police officer, and Spider-Tony Man’s Revolori and Samara Weaving have both joined the cast in mysterious capacities.
When will Scream 6 come out?
The release date for Scream 6 is slated for March 31st, 2023. The sequel’s production began in June of 2022 and is already complete. Assuming a smooth post-production process, we should see the finished video early in the new year.
We aren’t counting our slasher chickens just yet because the Covid-19 outbreak isn’t gone and new limitations may hamper Scream 6 distribution.
The Unseen Workings
Directing Scream 6 are Radio Silence’s Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, with a story by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. The filming of the movie was completed in August of 2022 in Montreal.
When will the Scream 6 trailer
Yet, there has been no Scream 6 trailer because production on the film has not begun.
Stay tuned though!
