Scream 6 has gotten hit by a setback when Neve Campbell announced that she would not be returning. The franchise saw a new jolt of energy when it released a new entry in 2022 that revived the franchise with a sequel quickly underway. Production has already started and it looks like the next entry is heading to New York City. Still, it looks like they’ve added four new faces to the franchise.
Deadline has reported that Liana Liberato, Jack Champion, Devyn Nekoda, and Josh Segarra to the cast. They join a cast that already sees some iconic members join from the last installment, which includes Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, and Jenna Ortega. They’ll join the sixth entry in the franchise that’ll also see Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett back in the director’s chair.
The fifth installment took quite the stab at the box office, as it made $140M worldwide on a small budget. The story will see the survivors of the last Ghostface killings leave Woodsboro behind and start off a new chapter in their lives. It’s unclear what might lead the iconic slasher to make his return, but we’ll know more when the film releases on March 31st, 2023.
