The much anticipated fifth instalment of the legendary horror franchise, “Scream,” will shortly be released in theatres, making it the first must-see horror event of 2022. Even though the film is very much a continuation of the franchise with a large portion of the original actors returning, it may be a little confusing or annoying that it isn’t simply titled “Scream 5” Nevertheless, many fans of genre films have been waiting a very long time for this. But the question still remains: must those viewers also endure the end credits?
Though they were not created by Marvel, post- and/or mid-credits scenes have become increasingly common in the MCU. Now? The expectation—or at least possibility—that something significant will occur during the credits is present in almost every franchise film. We’re here to provide you with a roadmap for navigating “Scream” in this aspect without giving away any plot details. So, here we go for those who want to know what (if anything) to expect. Enjoy if you’d prefer to be startled in either direction.
Does Scream Have a Credits Scene?
People, there’s no need to tease this out. No, there isn’t a mid- or post-credits sequence in the new “Scream.” Period. Therefore, after the movie is over, you may go to the restroom in peace and know that you haven’t missed anything vital to the franchise’s prospective future. The late Wes Craven didn’t include any such scenes to any of the first four films, and it appears (“Ready or Not”) directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett are continuing that tradition.
Now, does this rule out the possibility of a “Scream 6”? No, not always. If this new film goes well, Spyglass and Paramount would seem to have every incentive to continue. That still holds true for horror now, as it has for the majority of its history. The beast is by nature what it is. This merely indicates that the cast felt no need to set anything up during the end credits.
The original trio, David Arquette (Dewey Riley), Courteney Cox (Gale Weathers), and Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott), are all back together in the cast.
Melissa Barrera, Kyle Gallner, Mason Gooding, Mikey Madison, Dylan Minnette, Jenna Ortega, Jack Quaid, Marley Shelton, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Sonia Ammar make up the remaining members of the ensemble. The film’s screenplay was written by Guy Busick and James Vanderbilt, with Kevin Williamson serving as producer.
Twenty-five years after a streak of brutal murders shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, a new killer has donned the Ghostface mask and begins targeting a group of teenagers to resurrect secrets from the town’s deadly past.
