Last year, the Scream franchise was awakened from its 11-year slumber with Scream, a reboot/sequel hybrid that saw the original three stars, — Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox — return to help a new generation of teens from being sliced and diced by a new Ghostface. The movie was a surprise hit (Scream 4 had been a dud) and since franchises never die, a sequel was quickly commissioned with most of the reboot cast returning (Campbell declined due to an insulting monetary offer, while Arquette isn’t returning due to his character, Dewey, meeting an unfortunate end in the last one).
Released at the beginning of March, Scream 6 quickly proved to be a hit with critics and audiences alike, becoming the most successful Scream movie since the original all the way back in 1996. Now wrapping up its successful theatrical run, the sequel is set to hit streaming very soon. Where is it streaming? And when? Digital Trends has all the answers for you.
Where to watch Scream 6
Scream 6 can now be accessed in your living rooms through the streaming service, Paramount+.
Paramount+ is the home to what many call the movie of 2022, Top Gun: Maverick. Trust us when we say that Maverick is worth your time. On the television front, Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) is a kingmaker for the service, with hit shows like 1923, Tulsa King, 1883, and Mayor of Kingstown available to stream for your viewing pleasure.

Is Scream 6 worth watching?
Yes! Like the not-so-great Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Scream VI takes place in New York City. The trailer showcases franchise fave Kirby (once again played by Hayden Panettiere) and good use of Big Apple staples (Ghostface stalks the subways!) as the movie does something different from previous installments.
The returning cast, headed by Wednesday star Jenna Ortega and featuring Courtney Cox, Hayden Panettiere, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Mason Gooding, Jack Champion, Josh Segarra, and Dermot Mulroney, make this sequel special, and the scares are truly unique and unlike anything else in the franchise.
Scream 6 is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett. On Rotten Tomatoes, Scream 6 has a 77% on the Tomatometer and a 91% audience score.
