Scream 6 directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett tease that the upcoming slasher sequel will feature a nod to Jenna Ortega’s Wednesday role. Following Ghostface’s triumphant return to screens last year, Scream 6 will see a whole host of new victims attempt to uncover the identity of yet another copycat killer. Melissa Barrera will return as Sam Carpenter while Ortega will reprise her role as her sister Tara. Scream 6 will take the siblings and their friends to an all-new location as they attempt to evade yet another round of gruesome Ghostface murders.
How Jenna Ortega Became One Of Scream 6’s Biggest Names
Many were excited to hear that Scream 6 will offer a much more expanded role for Ortega’s Tara, as the actress continues to establish herself as an up-and-coming scream queen. Scream 6 will see Ortega joined by Courteney Cox, Hayden Panettiere, Samara Weaving, Dermot Mulroney, Jasmin Savoy Brown, and Mason Gooding as Ghostface appears to have followed them to the East Coast. With Tara and Sam now well-versed in taking down the Ghostface killer, there is ample opportunity for Ortega to lead the way in this upcoming sequel, in which she now features as one of its biggest stars.
