Since its release on January 14, 2022, the new Scream, directed by Radio Silence's Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, has earned a global gross of more than $106.7 million. The directing duo will be returning for the sequel, along with writers James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick, with Scream 6 beginning production this summer.

Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson planned for the series to be a trilogy, with the sequels Scream 2 in 1997 and Scream 3 in 2000.

A TV series based on the Scream films aired on MTV from 2015 to 2019.

After Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment acquired the rights to the series from Dimension Films, production commenced on a new film, with Kevin Williamson on board as Executive Producer and a new cast that includes , , , , and . Williamson will return as an executive producer for Scream 6, with Project X Entertainment's Vanderbilt, Paul Neinstein and William Sherak producing.
