This week, the Scream franchise is once again the internet’s topic of conversation, only this time we’re not making memes about a barely-there fringe—we’re freaking out over Scream 5. It seems like Courteney Cox knew what she was doing when she scared us with that DIY ‘do on Halloween.

After eight long, Ghostface-less years (unless you count Scream, the TV show) fans of the horror flick franchise can finally look forward to another movie in the series. Spyglass Media Group is reportedly developing the new film, but there’s no word yet on who will direct, or the potential film’s plot. Wes Craven, the creator of Scream and director of all four films, sadly passed away in 2015, and so far Scream writer Kevin Williamson isn’t attached to the new project.

The four films in the Scream franchise have remained canon, based off of Craven’s wonderfully twisted slasher flick premise, and following the story of Sidney Prescott as she seek to find out the truth about her mother, Maureen Prescott’s, murder. In light of Craven’s passing, there’s no telling whether this upcoming film will be a prequel, sequel, or an entirely new reboot—though we’re sure Randy would have something to say about that. Either way, you can guarantee Scream fans are definitely reacting.

Most fans are extremely adamant that the next film be a continuation of Wes Craven’s Scream 4, or nothing at all.

Others, however, are open to the new Scream movie taking a more creative approach. If that’s the case, we’re all for a prequel or a reboot with the movie focusing on a different character from the franchise. Imagine if Drew Barrymore’s character, Casey Becker, didn’t die in the first five minutes of the original film?

We’d definitely be down for the new Scream to be an official sequel with Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox (and her bangs) coming back to reprise their roles. Until we find out, we’ll be reading fan theories on Twitter, and brushing up on our Woodsboro trivia.
