Ghostface Terrorizes Jenna Ortega, Melissa Barrera, and Courteney Cox in the "Scream 6" Trailer
This is Ghostface like you've never seen him before. Paramount released full trailer for "Scream 6" on Jan. 19, and it brings Ghostface's terror right to the heart of New York City, where he torments some of the characters fans know and love, including Courteney Cox's Gale Weathers. "You know you're like the tenth guy to try this, right? It never works out for the dipsh*t in the mask," she warns Ghostface. But it looks like this Ghostface is unlike any threat any of them have faced before. And on Feb. 8, Paramount released the movie's short Super Bowl ad, with a brand new clip of the gang trying to escape the killer's trap. Watch both ahead.
Back in February 2022, Deadline confirmed that the sixth installment of the cult-classic franchise was underway, with directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett set to return, along with a host of familiar faces. "Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators — and in the lineage Wes [Craven] and Kevin [Williamson] so expertly built — has been the thrill of a lifetime and we're so excited to bring the next chapter in the Scream saga to life," Bettinelli-Olpin, Gillett, and executive producer Chad Villella told Deadline in a statement. James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, who cowrote 2022's "Scream" and now "Scream 6," added: "Is this real life? Getting to collaborate once again with our friends on the next installment of the Scream story is more than we could have hoped for. We are overwhelmed that we get to continue to play in the sandbox that Kevin and Wes created. It is, as Ghostface would say, an honor."
"Scream 5," released in January 2022, brought back franchise stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Cox and more, and introduced the new group of teens who are also returning for "Scream 6." Read on for what we know about the sequel.

"Scream 6" Cast
In July 2022, Deadline reported that Samara Weaving and Tony Revolori are joining the cast. Weaving is no stranger to horror, having previously starred in 2019's "Ready or Not." Revolori plays Flash Thompson in Tom Holland's Spider-Man films. Other newcomers to the cast include "She-Hulk"'s Josh Segarra.
A month earlier in June, Deadline reported that Neve Campbell, who appeared in all five previous Scream films as Sidney Prescott, would not be returning for "Scream 6." "Sadly I won't be making the next Scream film," she said, per Deadline, citing salary issues. Still, some major stars are set to come back.
In May 2022, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Hayden Panettiere, one of the stars of 2011's "Scream 4," will return as her character Kirby Reed. Back in 2011, Panettiere played a horror-obsessed high school student who narrowly managed to evade Ghostface. Also returning is Courteney Cox as Gale Weathers. Dermot Mulroney also joins the cast as a police officer who tries to help them.
"Scream 6" Plot
Paramount describes the plot this way: "Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter." In the trailers, we see Tara, Sam, and their friends trying to forge a new life in New York City, but Ghostface has followed. In New York, Gale Weathers and Kirby Reed try to help them take Ghostface down for good.
"Scream 6" Release Date
