RUMOUR: Neve Campbell back for Scream 6… and 7?

July 1st, 2022 by Marc Comments

So, you’ll likely recall a couple of weeks back that the Scream community, of which we’re proud to be a part, was shocked to hear that the cornerstone of the franchise, Neve Campbell, Sydney Prescott in the series, was not coming back (here).

“It’s been a very difficult decision to move on,” Campbell said at the time, “To all my Scream fans, I love you. You’ve always been so incredibly supportive to me. I’m forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years.”

Obviously, as the one who started the whole series and who has been killing Ghostface ever since, Sydney is one of our favorite horror icons but the more we thought about it, the more we thought her not returning was a good idea.

The most recent movie gave her a nice send-off and we already learned that she was married to Det. Mark Kincaid, played by Patrick Dempsey in Scream 3, and they had two kids together. Her story, in many ways, was told and I was happy to see where the franchise when next.

However, over the last few days, we have heard a lot of rumours that Campbell has, in fact, reached an agreement with the makers of Scream 6 and she will appear in a small role but if and when Scream 7 happens, she will move back to centre stage.

Which has us thinking…

For a long time there was a rumour that a previous Scream was to open with Sydney fighting Ghostface at the movie’s opening but before we found out if she died, the scene cut away, with her fate being left open for a long time. Could we see this happen here? Might we see the two fight with her fate held back until the seventh movie? Em, if so, I guess this is a spoiler… apologies.

Anyway, what do you guys think? Will we see her back for the next movie and the one after?

Let us know all your thoughts…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
