Meet the cast of Scream 6
Wednesday breakout star Jenna Ortega leads a stellar ensemble.
The Scream franchise has always attracted a high calibre of acting talent, with the latest instalment being no exception – but sadly, not every star lives past their first encounter with Ghostface.
Scream VI sees the return of Wednesday star Jenna Ortega as Tara Carpenter, a survivor of the previous Woodsboro killing spree, who is now looking to start afresh in New York City.
She is joined by sister Sam (Melissa Barrera) as well as fellow survivors Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks (Mason Gooding), who will need all their luck and determination to escape what's heading their way.
Longtime fans of the Scream films will also be delighted to see Courteney Cox and Hayden Panettiere back in action as Gale and Kirby respectively, while Roger L Jackson remains the sinister voice behind the mask.
Of course, one notable absence is Neve Campbell, who chose not to reprise her role in this sequel.
Without further ado, here's your full guide to the Scream VI cast.
