Scream 6 Bringing Back Presumed Dead Star Of Earlier Franchise Reboot

Hayden Panettiere is the latest star to sign on for Scream 6

with the franchise alum set to reprise her role as the fan favorite Kirby Reed.

Wes Craven's beloved slasher franchise made a major comeback earlier this year with the arrival of Scream,

a new film centered around the next generation of Ghostface victims.

After grossing an impressive $138.8 million worldwide, Paramount and Spyglass Media greenlit Scream 6 to continue the series

Panettiere boarded the franchise with 2011's Scream 4, playing cool girl Kirby Reed

Though she gets horrifically attacked by one of the movie's Ghostface killers

it was later revealed that Kirby actually survived.

This led to numerous theories that she would return in the 2022 Scream,

it might not be a smart idea on the creative team's part to lose one of their best assets so soon.

With Scream 6 really charging forward now, hopefully more updates will emerge soon that could shed some light on what the newest Ghostface has in store.
