Ghostface heads to New York City in Scream VI teaser trailer

If there’s one thing the Scream franchise has taught, it’s that Ghostface will live on. Even if one person dies in the costume, someone else will inevitably take up the mantle and become a killer. In the teaser trailer for Scream VI, Ghostface has found a new place to terrorize: New York City.

Scream VI | Official Teaser Trailer (2023 Movie)

As the poster reads, “New York. New Rules.” After the events of Scream, also known as Scream V, sisters Sam (Melissa Barrera) and Tara (Wednesday‘s Jenna Ortega) leave Woodsboro in favor of the Big Apple to start a new life. The girls are joined by twins Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad (Mason Gooding) Meek-Martin, who all survived the recent Woodsboro murders at the hands of Ghostface. The quartet will soon learn that there’s no hiding from Ghostface as the masked murderer confronts the group on the New York City subway in the teaser trailer.

Scream VI marks the return of Courteney Cox as television reporter Gale Weathers and Hayden Panettiere as Kirby, a survivor of the Ghostface killings in Scream IV. New cast members joining the franchise include Samara Weaving, Henry Czerny, Tony Revolori, Jack Champion, Liana Liberato, Devyn Nekoda, Josh Segarra, and Dermot Mulroney. Neve Campbell, who starred as the iconic final girl, Sidney Prescott, will not return for the sixth film due to contract complications.

Scream VI is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett from a script written by James Vanderbilt and Guy Busick. These four men worked in the same capacity on the previous film, 2022’s Scream, which grossed $140 million and received positive reviews, with many calling it the best sequel in the franchise.

Does Scream 6 have a post-credits end scene?
Sam, Tara, Mindy, and Chad stand together in Scream 6.

Thanks to modern superhero movies like Iron Man and Black Panther, it's now a ritual for audiences to linger after the end credits roll for pretty much any movie nowadays. If a classic movie like The Sixth Sense was made today, there would be an end credits scene with the ghost of Bruce Willis' character hanging around another poor psychic kid to tease a sequel, The Sixth Sense 2: Deader Than Ever.

Horror is a genre that's recently seen some post-credits scenes lately. The original Insidious and last year's Terrifier 2 both had end credits scenes, which can be important to build up a franchise and tease the sequel we all know is coming at some point. The Scream franchise isn't known to have end credits scenes, but in today's moviegoing climate when every movie seemingly has one, a viewer has to ask: does Scream 6 have a post-credits end scene?
Well, does Scream 6 have a post-credits end scene or not?

Scream 6 sticks to its franchise’s bloody formula with the same joyful glee as the series’ past installments. Set in New York City, the film follows Scream 5 survivors Sam (Melissa Barrera), Tara (Jenna Ortega), Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown), and Chad (Mason Gooding) as they find their lives turned upside down yet again by the emergence of a new Ghostface killer (or killers?), who is dead set on taking their happy ending away from them.

Where to watch every Scream movie
Four kids put their hands in from a scene from Scream VI.

What's your favorite scary movie? 27 years ago, that question was posed to Casey Becker (Fever Pitch's Drew Barrymore) by a masked killer named Ghostface in the opening scene of Scream. It - spoiler alert - did not end well for Casey. However, the course of slashers changed with the release of Scream. The film brilliantly satirized horror clichés and featured characters who openly spoke about real horror movies. But at the end of the day, Scream was still a slasher that did not shy away from blood, gore, or violence.

The Scream franchise is now amid a resurgence thanks to Scream, the fifth film in the series. The 2022 film helped relaunch the franchise and introduced Ghostface to a new generation of horror fans. Scream grossed over $140 million worldwide, spawning a direct sequel, Scream VI, which hits theaters on March 10.
