Who is in the Scream 6 cast? The creative team behind Scream 5 is returned for another new chapter in the meta-horror franchise. That means co-directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, as well as writers James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, are responsible for bringing Ghostface back to the big screen once again.

But Scream 5 ended in a pretty conclusive way, with Gale and Sidney agreeing not to publish anything about this new wave of murders so that the legacy of Billy Loomis and Stu Macher will be finally put to rest. So what happens in this new horror movie?

Well, to answer that particular question, we’ve gone through everything surrounding Scream 6’s release. We summarise the plot, who’s in the new Scream cast, and the slasher movie’s reception. So here’s everything we know about the Scream 6 cast. Warning, minor spoilers for the Scream movies ahead.

Who is in the Scream 6 cast?

Melissa Barrera, Jenna Ortega, Mason Gooding, and Jasmin Savoy Brown lead the Scream 6 cast. They’re joined by newcomers Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda and Josh Segarra.

Hayden Panettiere returned to the franchise for Scream 6. The actor is reprised her role as Kirby Reed from the 2011 horror movie, Scream 4.

Neither Jack Quaid and Mason Gooding returned as they both came down with an unfortunate case of being dead at the end of Scream 2022. Similarly, David Arquette finally ran out of luck in the last movie, meeting his end at the end of Ghostface’s knife. Sadly, no flashback appearance either

The Scream 6 cast list is:

  • Melissa Barrera as Sam Carpenter
  • Jasmin Savoy Brown
  • Jack Champion as Ethan Landry
  • Henry Czerny as Dr Christopher Stone

What is Scream 6 about?

In Scream 6, Sam is hunted by a new Ghostface while in college in New York City. She’s joined by Mindy, Chad, Tara, and some roommates in navigating the sick killer’s desire for their blood.

They navigate the perils of being in a soft rebooted legacy sequel, where the rules dictate any of them could die – or be the murderer. As Scream evolves away from Woodsboro, each Ghostface brings another wrinkle of terror, and this entry is no exception.
