Scream VI: Neve Campbell’s absence and Skeet Ulrich’s revelation

The Scream franchise has been a fan favorite in the horror genre for over two decades. The fifth installment of the series was released in 2022 and marked the first time that Neve Campbell’s character, Sidney Prescott, was absent. The decision came after Campbell passed on the project due to a pay dispute. However, according to franchise co-star Skeet Ulrich, Campbell has nothing but love for the latest sequel, Scream VI.

Ulrich’s revelation about Campbell’s thoughts on Scream VI

During a recent convention, Skeet Ulrich spoke with People and shared that he had talked to Campbell about Scream VI. Ulrich stated that Campbell “loved it; she loves what we’ve done.” While there were business issues that were important to Campbell as a businesswoman, Ulrich confirmed that they all stand behind her.

Campbell’s potential return to the franchise

The directors of Scream 2022 and Scream VI, Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, have expressed their interest in bringing back Campbell’s character if they helm another sequel. Ulrich also hinted that Campbell might be open to the idea, stating that she misses being involved with the films. Despite not being in the latest movie, Campbell’s character remains an essential part of the franchise, as the final girl.

More details about Scream VI

Scream VI follows the four survivors of the Ghostface killings as they leave Woodsboro and start a new chapter in New York City. However, the story takes a dark turn as the survivors find themselves pursued by a new killer. The film stars Melissa Barrera as Samantha Carpenter, Jenna Ortega as Tara Carpenter, Mason Gooding as Chad Meeks-Martin, and Jasmin Savoy Brown as Mindy Meeks-Martin.

Although Neve Campbell was absent from Scream VI, her presence in the franchise remains significant.

The potential for Campbell’s return to the franchise also offers hope for a future installment featuring the iconic Sidney Prescott.
