Ghostface just can’t seem to stay away. The first trailer for “Scream 6” is here, and it brings Ghostface’s terror right to the heart of New York City. Watch the teaser footage ahead.

On Feb. 3, 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 Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and more, and introduced the new group of teens who will return for “Scream 6.” Read on for what we know about the sequel.

“Scream 6” Cast

On July 14, 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.

On June 6, 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.

On May 11, 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, and it looks like she’ll have to face him again in the forthcoming installment.

The film will also see the return of the principal cast from 2022’s “Scream,” which includes Mason Gooding (Chad), Jenna Ortega (Tara), Melissa Barrera (Sam), and Jasmin Savoy Brown (Mindy).

“Scream 6” Plot

Basically all we know about the plot so far is that the film is set in New York City. In the teaser, we see some of the cast on a crowded subway on what appears to be Halloween night. Slowly, the car fills with people dressed as Ghostface. “In a city of millions, no one hears you scream,” the trailer warns.

“Scream 6” Release Date

“Scream 6” will hit theaters on March 10, 2023.
