Although it’s a shame that Neve Campbell won’t star in Scream 6the news that Scream 6 could be set in New York City seems interesting, exciting, and fresh. It’s true that the best Scream films take place in Woodsboro, the small California town where Sidney Prescott grew up and has returned several times. But since Sidney won’t be a major part of the movie, and it seems likely that the characters will only have a brief reference Sidney and then move on just as quickly, it will be great to see the characters in a new place.


If Scream 6 took a place in Woodsboro, fans of course would be happy as the small town is a significant part of the story. But it would seem strange to watch the characters deal with Ghostface without Sidney being there and there really is no legitimate reason why Sidney could not come back this time to help out. After all, Sidney makes sure to be there for Tara (Jenna Ortega) and Sam Carpenter (Melissa Barerra) in Scream (2022).

The best horror movie settings often include creepy small towns, but NYC is such a vibrant, busy, and interesting city that it seems like the perfect place for the next chapter of Scream to unfold. Perhaps the younger characters Tara, Sam, Mindy (Jasmin Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks-Martin (Mason Gooding) are going to college in New York City. Or if not, then something has happened to bring them all there. Maybe the characters get a note (or text message or social media DM) from Ghostface, telling them to meet up in NYC.


The NYC setting also seems logical since Scream final girl Gale Weathers (Courteney Cox) moved to the city before Scream (2022) as she’s now the host of a morning TV series. The fact that Gale is connected to the new Ghostface. Maybe Gale’s show is going to be a big set and the body counts, leading Gale to jump into action and help find out who is doing this.

Since Hayden Panettiere’s popular Scream character Kirby Reed is returning, it seems likely that Kirby could live in New York as well. Maybe Kirby is working as a journalist or filmmaker or has another cool and interesting career. Kirby is so smart that it seems like he has created an awesome life for herself while never forgetting the pain and suffering that he and his friend claimed to be in love with with her.


Scream 6 will likely be visually beautiful and stunning, since Montreal is a pretty city, and since it will be standing in New York, audiences can expect an urban setting that looks artistic, fun, and exciting. This new location breathes life into the franchise and offers up a compelling reason to check out the new movie. Fans have seen Ghostface hanging out in Stu Macher’s (Matthew Lillard) house, hanging out in the grocery store and high school, and in the town square. It’s time for something new.

Scream (2022) is great because it links Gale, Dewey Riley (David Arquette) and, of course, Sidney. Scream 6 will be something completely different and new, considering that there’s still a good reason to make a new Scream movie, and even setting up future sequels. Maybe if there are more Scream movies being made, which is a popular slasher franchise, each movie will take a place in a brand new location. This would be even more terrifying since it would suggest that Ghostface can find the characters anywhere, which means that they can never truly escape.
