Is Neve Campbell returning to popular movie franchise Scream 6? Know the truth.


Sidney Prescott will still be featured in the “Scream” franchise even though Neve Campbell won’t be appearing in the upcoming sixth instalment. Jenna Ortega, who played Tara Carpenter in the lead role of 2022’s “Scream” and is back for the sixth instalment, revealed to Entertainment Tonight that Sidney will be mentioned frequently in the new movie despite Campbell leaving the project because she felt her salary offer disrespected her worth to the long-running horror classic.

Why is Neve Campbell Not A Part Of Scream 6?

Campbell remains unwavering about her exit as work on the sixth movie, which will be directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (who both succeeded the late Wes Craven with the fifth chapter). In a recent interview with People, she stated, “I did not feel that what I was being offered amounted to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years. And as a woman in this industry, I believe it’s crucial for us to fight for and receive respect.

Campbell said that if she were the starring male in a franchise, her pay would not be a problem. She remarked, “I honestly don’t believe that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be paid to a man if I were a male and had done five editions of a great blockbuster movie over 25 years, and in my soul, I just couldn’t do that. I couldn’t enter the set while feeling undervalued and the unfairness (or lack thereof) around that.”

When Courteney Cox, the original star of Scream, and Campbell’s directors learned that she wouldn’t be joining them for Scream 6, “they were very understanding, very supportive, and very sad,” Campbell recalled.

“It was shocking, but also, as a woman, I get it. Especially as a woman of colour, I deal with that stuff all the time where I feel like they’re not paying me what I know that I’m worth. But usually for me, I feel like it’s because I’m a Latina, and they don’t value us as much as white women. So if Neve being a white woman is feeling undervalued, that just goes to show how much of a problem it is in the industry. I applaud her sticking to what she believes in.”

Will Neve Campbell Return In Scream 6?

Currently, Campbell does add that a return to the horror franchise is still a possibility. According to her, it would depend on what they presented to her next. It would need to be distinct. I doubt that will happen since it would require a different approach. Campbell went on, “I’d be willing to explore [returning in the future] if they came to me with a number that felt right, that felt respectable, that felt in keeping with my value that I provided to the franchise,” she continues., “We’ll see, but I don’t think it’s dead in the water.”
