“When Will Scream 7 Come Out? Latest Updates on the Iconic Horror Series. Fans of Wes Craven’s legendary horror franchise are eagerly anticipating the release of Scream 7 after the success of the 2023 film, Scream 6. The Ghostface saga, which first began in 1996, continues to captivate audiences with its chilling tales.

The latest instalment took the new generation of Woodsboro survivors to the streets of New York City, introducing fresh characters and storylines. This has left viewers speculating about the potential directions for future movies.

Much like the enduring appeal of Ghostface, the possibilities for this knife-wielding antagonist seem endless. Here’s what we know about the anticipated release date for Scream 7.

Release Date Speculation for Scream 7

While there’s speculation that Scream 7 might hit theatres in late 2024 or early 2025, it’s important to note that the film is still in its early stages of development, and an official release date has yet to be confirmed.

Although directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett expressed their desire to continue the iconic franchise, it has been revealed that the next chapter will be directed by Christopher Landon, known for films like Freaky and Happy Death Day.

Bettinelli-Olpin and Gillett will be shifting their focus to an original horror project for Universal. However, progress on Scream 7 in 2023 may be impacted by the ongoing 2023 Writers Strike and Actors Strike.

 

What is Scream 7 about?

Although there isn’t an official description available yet, we anticipate Scream 7 will continue where the previous movie left off, with Sam embracing her father’s killing impulses.

(Scream 6 spoilers ahead!) We learned that Ghostface was actually a number of killers at the conclusion of the previous slasher film. Without giving anything away, let’s just say there are no hints to future movie antagonists, and unfinished business is resolved. However, there is a pivotal scene that makes a sequel quite likely.

Sam may be seen gazing intently at her father Billy Loomis’ (also known as the original Ghostface) mask. She used the outfit previously to imprison Bailey and protect herself, as we observed. Sam obviously enjoyed her time as a disguised assassin more than she ought to have.

While Sam did remove the mask at the conclusion of Scream 6, we are quite certain that she still has some killer instincts. And how awesome would it be to see a new Scream movie deviate from its last lady slasher cliché by making Sam the next bad guy instead?

We want to see it happen, and right now it seems like a Sam Ghostface movie is the only option – unless we get a surprise twist and a different cast.
