We won’t be waiting long. The next chapter of Scream is now set for January 14, 2022. So start counting those days.
My first thought about Scream having a January drop was filled with concern orginally. January and February have notoriously been tied with a large amount of bad films being dropped in that time frame. However, this isn’t always the case, so I’m remaining hopeful.
Scream’s four part franchise was the child of Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson and totally changed the game in the face of horror. If this is indeed a direct continuation, it would be the first without Craven and Williamson’s involvement.
Sources say Scream 5 will follow a woman returning to her home town to try to find out who has been committing a series of vicious crimes.’
