Don't Pick Up the Phone! The New "Scream" Movie Has a Release Date

Ghostface is back — again.

We hate to admit it, but there's been something missing this spooky season. Oh we know what it is, we need a new Scream movie. Well we asked and the internet delivered. Not only will there be a Scream 6, but the movie's upcoming release date was shared on Twitter on October 26. 

The horror franchise really got people buzzing when they shared the news on their twitter page @TheScreamSeries.

"'SCREAM 6’ will be released on MARCH 31st, 2023," the tweet states, before adding a knife and blood drop emoji — natch. 

People in the comments section were so excited. "I’m SCREAMing," @thekirajackson wrote. "Scream still hasn’t missed, every movie is a hit," @spy133133 added. "Awesome can not wait I love the Scream movies," @intoyou_banks chimed in.

However, some people worried it's too soon after the last movie was released. "Not gonna lie. It feels like the 2000s when there was a new Saw sequel or in the 80s when there was a new Nightmare, Friday or Halloween every year. Which is not necessarily a good thing because those were films rushed into production to cash in on previous films success," @octaslasher pointed out. "Rushing it," @dyjr94 agreed. 

Although other pointed out that they've had a similar timeline in the franchise before. 

"Scream 2 came out almost a year after Scream 1. It'll be fine," @Arctic_Volcano wrote.

We have so. many. questions. Namely, will Dewey be back? How are we supposed to move on without our favorite policeman?

Another big question the film will have to navigate is what to do now that actress Neve Campbell has revealed that she will not be reprising her role as Sidney Prescott.

The actress told People that her involvement ended while negotiating her contract. 

"I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years," she explained to the news outlet. 

"And as a woman in this business, I think it's really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued," she added. "I honestly don't believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man." 

"And in my soul, I just couldn't do that," she said. "I couldn't walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that."

The actress emphasized that the only reason that she's leaving the franchise is due to her contract. A point she made because she clearly cares about the fans of the films, who have been with her since the '90s.

"It's been a very difficult decision to move on," she added in a statement. "To all my Scream fans, I love you. You've always been so incredibly supportive to me. I'm forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years," she said.
