In 1996, Wes Craven released the original Scream — a surprisingly effective slasher film that spawned four additional sequels: Scream 2 (1997), Scream 3 (2000), Scream 4 (2011), and the 2022 sequel simply titled, Scream.
The latest installment — which made more than $139 million at the worldwide box office — brought back original cast members Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, and David Arquette to the quiet town of Woodsboro, California where a new killer donned the Ghostface mask.
According to Production Weekly, Scream 6 will be the first in the series not shot in the US.
And, although some of the franchise’s original actors are also set to star in Scream 6, Campbell will reportedly not be part of the upcoming sequel.

Filming today took place at this townhouse building. The townhouse on the left, behind the tree is the specific section chosen for filming. The whole front of that townhouse has been covered with tarp and black coverings to conceal all activity inside. pic.twitter.com/DvjhssVMA9
