Paramount Pictures and Spyglass have released the character posters for the upcoming sequel SCREAM VI, as well, the very first TV Spot that aired during the Super Bowl this past weekend, featuring Hayden Panettiere‘s return as Kirby. Take a look.
On Monday, January 23, Hayden was spotted on set of a new photoshoot for a magazine at the beach, in Malibu.
Later this month, Hayden and her team shared on Instagram getting ready to start her promo for the film.
Scream VI also sees the return of Hayden Panettiere‘s horror movie-loving Scream 4 character and fan favorite Kirby Reed, who was last seen twitching in a pool of her own blood after being stabbed by Rory Culkin’s villainous Charlie Walker.
“She’s come a long way,” says Panettiere of Kirby. “What happened to her has obviously impacted her life, and it sends her in a certain direction, but she’s still the same old Kirby at the heart of it. She’s just a little older, a little wiser, but just as spitfire-y, and snarky, and all that good stuff.”
The actress admits that it was a little strange entering a situation in which she was both a veteran of the franchise and a new kid to the current Scream set-up.
“Yeah, I felt a little left out,” says the Heroes and Nashville star. “It’s true. I did feel a little like I had to find my way back into the new group because that crew had done the prior film. But they were all so welcoming. It was interesting, they made me part of their family that I had already been a part of. [Laughs] So it was like an estranged aunt came back into the fold!“
Paramount Pictures dropped the official trailer for Scream VI on Thursday, January 19, 2023, and it promises some intense jump-scare horror.
The trailer also shows the return of Hayden Panettiere’s character Kirby Reed, last seen in Scream 4.
I’ve managed to add some promotional material to the gallery. Enjoy!

The Montreal-shot Scream VI will also see the return to the franchise of Hayden Panettiere, who became a fan favorite for her performance as Kirby Reed in Scream 4.
“She was wonderful. She was really great,” says Gillett. “It was fun to have her around to tell us about Scream 4. She had a lot of great stories she got to share. It’s that Scream family; it’s continuing to grow for us.”
