The trailer for Scream VI starring Jenna Ortega and Courtney Cox has dropped.
Check it out here:
Mason Gooding, Hayden Panettiere and Jasmin Savoy Brown are also returning for the film, which is a direct sequel to last January's Scream, which relaunched the horror series after a decade-long break.
A synopsis for the sixth edition of the slasher series reads: "Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind and start a fresh chapter.
"In Scream VI, Melissa Barrera (Sam Carpenter), Jasmin Savoy Brown (Mindy Meeks-Martin), Mason Gooding (Chad Meeks-Martin), Jenna Ortega (Tara Carpenter), Hayden Panettiere (Kirby Reed) and Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers) return to their roles in the franchise alongside Jack Champion, Henry Czerny, Liana Liberato, Dermot Mulroney, Devyn Nekoda, Tony Revolori, Josh Segarra, and Samara Weaving."
Neve Campbell previously announced she would not be returning as Sidney Prescott because she felt unhappy with the offer made to her by the studio.
"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 told People magazine.
The movie is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett and written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, with original franchise writer and creator Kevin Williamson returning as executive producer.
Ortega recently said she hopes to make more slasher movies, so we may see her in more instalments of Scream just yet - provided she survives this one.
The 20-year-old star is rising rapidly following her portrayal of Wednesday Addams in Tim Burton's Netflix series Wednesday.
In an interview with The Face, Ortega said of her future: "I would hope I'm doing jobs that excite me. I think I'd tend to go down the more dramatic indie route.
"Maybe a good slasher or two in there. I'd like my jobs to be diverse.
"If I reach some sort of widespread genre collection, that would be exciting for me – and that's if I continue acting."
Scream VI will hit cinemas from 10 March 2023.
