Now, recently Courtney posted a photo of the classic Scream mask with the caption, “I can’t wait to see this face again.” Naturally, the fans of the franchise are excited as hell by this news. Scream 5 would have been lonely without the familiar face of Gale Weathers. Courtney hasn’t commented on working with her ex-husband (David) in this movie.

“Scream 5”: storyline
If any of you haven’t watched this franchise or don’t know what it is, here’s a little summary of the films. The Scream franchise is a classic horror series that started in 1996. Scream 1 came out in 1996 and went on to be the founding stone of four parts of a series. The movies are known for their graphic violence and signature costumes. Their characters are well developed and encapsulate the murder aesthetic. A lot of its horror is based on the genre of survival horror and psychopathic antagonists.
The story revolves around a masked serial killer named Ghostface who hunts the main characters of the movie. These characters are written with self-awareness and don’t fall into cliche tropes. The four films show us the same concept, but the incredible plot twists, and suspense entertains the audience beautifully. Ghostface will come back in Scream 5 too, so the audience is excited as hell!
