‘Scream 6’ Has A New Release Date And Arrives Sooner Than Expected

Good news for Ghostface fans. We’re going to get new Scream action a few weeks sooner than expected, and that’s a win I’ll take. The sixth entry in the iconic slasher franchise now arrives on March 10, 2023.

Scream 6 aka Scream II aka Scream !! (but probably not) was originally slated to hit cinemas on March 31st, 2023. This is not the only Paramount project getting shuffled, with Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves pushed back to March 31st, 2023 from its original March 3rd drop date.

Spyglass Media Group and Paramount Pictures originally announced the new Scream title in February 2022. Returning are Radio Silence (Ready or Not, V/H/S) with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett at the helm and James Vanderbilt (Murder Mystery, Zodiac) & Guy Busick (Ready or Not, Castle Rock) co-writing the screenplay. Project X Entertainment’s Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak are serving as producers (Ambulance, Bed Rest). Creator Kevin Williamson and the third member of Radio Silence, Chad Villella, are executive producing alongside Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre.

Spyglass and Paramount Pictures jointly said, “We are tremendously grateful to the fans around the world who enthusiastically received our film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what Radio Silence, writers Jamie & Guy and Project X have in store for our Woodsboro family.”

Radio Silence said, “Working with such a wonderful and talented family of creators – and in the lineage Wes and Kevin 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.”

Vanderbilt and Busick said, “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.”

“We have become a big family and are eager to continue telling stories in the wonderful Scream universe,” said the Project X Entertainment partners.

On a recent episode of the Dread Central podcast Development Hell, we learned that an undeveloped Scream sequel potentially saw Jill go to college, where a fresh Ghostface would try to frame her for a new onslaught of slaughter. Check out the episode right here:
