Breaking: Jenna Ortega will not return for ‘SCREAM 7’.

Jenna Ortega Is Not Gonna Be In Scream 7

Jenna Ortega, star of the upcoming Netflix series Wednesday, has announced that she will not be returning for the seventh installment of the Scream franchise, Scream 7. This news comes just one day after lead Melissa Barrera was fired from the project over social media posts that Production Company Spyglass deemed antisemitic.

Several unconfirmed reports last night indicated that Ortega called her agents to end her contract for Scream 7 in solidarity with Barrera. However, Deadline insists that Ortega’s exit is due to scheduling conflicts with the filming of Wednesday season 2.

Ortega’s departure marks the end of the CORE FOUR, the group of four new cast members introduced in Scream 2022 who were expected to lead the franchise forward. With Barrera and now Ortega gone, it is unclear who will be left to carry the torch.

Despite these setbacks, production on Scream 7 is expected to begin in early 2024. It is unknown who will replace Barrera and Ortega, but it is sure to be a challenge for the filmmakers to find actors who can fill their shoes.

Regardless of who replaces them, Scream 7 will be a different movie without Barrera and Ortega. The CORE FOUR was a big part of what made Scream 2022 so successful, and their absence will be felt.

Is Scream 7 Confirmed?

Yes, Scream 7 has been confirmed to be in development. The film was announced in August 2023, after the success of Scream 6. Christopher Landon will be directing the film, taking over from Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

Is There any Release Date Of Scream 7?

There is no official release date for Scream 7 yet, but it is expected to be released sometime in late 2024 or early 2025.

The film was originally scheduled to begin filming in October 2023, but was delayed due to the ongoing WGA/SAG-AFTRA strike. The strike ended in November 2023, so filming is now expected to begin in early 2024.

Once filming is complete, it will take several months for the film to be edited and post-produced. Therefore, a release date in late 2024 or early 2025 is most likely.

I will continue to update this answer as more information becomes available.
