‘Scream 5’ reveals official title and release date as production wraps


Hello again, Sidney!

Production has ended on the upcoming “Scream” sequel.

The official title to the fifth chapter in the Ghostface killer series has also been revealed and should sound very familiar to fans of the franchise.

While many had voiced hope that it would be titled “5cream,” in actuality, the latest edition will take the name of the 1996 original and also be called “Scream.”

The film franchise’s creator and executive producer Kevin Williamson announced the news in an Instagram post alongside original stars Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott) and Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers).

"That's a wrap on Scream, which I'm excited to announce is the official title of the next film!" Williamson captioned the photo. "Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans."
