Ghostface is back! But is Scream 6 streaming? 

In the latest addition to the slasher series, the masked killer is bringing the murderous mayhem from fictional Woodsboro, California, straight to New York City, where a cast led by Jenna Ortega (the moody actress behind our beloved Wednesday Addams on Netflix) is trying to start anew. 

However, a familiar (ghostly) face from the past makes a fresh start next to impossible, offering close calls in bodegas and frightening rides on the 3 train. (So much for that New York City dream, huh?)

"That can become just as dangerous, if not more dangerous, and it really could be anybody for any reason," said Ortega's co-star, Hayden Panettiere, to Good Morning America about the killer's new, very public environment. 

Fellow franchise alum Melissa Barrera, returning as Billy Loomis' daughter Sam Carpenter, likewise revealed to Collider that the stakes are higher than before now that Ghostface doesn't seem to have any limits: "We were terrified shooting this because it’s more violent and feels more intense than last time. The writers definitely took it to another level."

Are you ready to encounter this mayhem for yourself? Here's all of the Scream 6 streaming info to know (and if you want to catch up on the rest of the freaky franchise, here's how to watch all of the Scream movies). 

Is 'Scream 6' streaming?

At this time, you must brave a trip to the cinema to see Scream 6 and there is no digital release date set yet. The horror sequel was released in theaters on Friday, March 10. 

However, given that this is a Paramount production, we suspect that Scream 6 will likely make its way to the streamer, Paramount Plus. That means that you'll need a Paramount Plus subscription plan to watch the thriller at home eventually. Current pricing includes the ad-supported Essentials option for $4.99 per month or the commercial-free Premium option for $9.99 per month. 

A confirmation has yet to be revealed, but as soon as we learn more about the Scream 6 streaming release date, you will be the first to know!

'Scream 6' length: what's the runtime?

Scream 6's thrills and chills will go on for a runtime of two hours and two minutes. 

Is Stu Macher in 'Scream 6'?

Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich), one of the two O.G. Ghostfaces from the 1996 original, returned to the franchise in the fifth Scream flick (though we won't spoil how). So naturally, fans are wondering whether Billy's killer cohort, Stu Macher (Matthew Lillard), will be making an appearance in the sixth edition.

Despite Stu's death via electrocution in the first movie, theories that Stu is actually alive have run rampant since Scream 2, when actor Matthew Lillard could be seen in the background of a frat-party scene.

The fan debate even caught the attention of Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson, who clarified to Collider: “No, he’s dead. I think that started because of the college scene, the frat party scene because he’s standing in the background. [Lillard] just came to visit set that night.”

However, the Scream 6 rumor mill is still abuzz about a potential Stu cameo, using the movie poster as a clue: the subway map-themed graphic shows all of the franchise's victims as "stops" on a train line, each marked with a white dot save for two: Hayden Panettiere's Kirby Reed, who was revealed to have survived in the fifth Scream and therefore her "stop" is closed and marked with an "X", and Stu Macher, whose "stop" dot is colored pink instead of white. Does that mean he's not only alive but ready for another killing spree? You'll have to watch to find out!

In the meantime, we suggest you catch up on your favorite Halloween movies like the original Scream to prepare for the wild ride that's on its way to the East Coast. See you later, Woodsboro. We'll be in New York!
