Jenna Ortega Bows Out Of Next ‘Scream’ Due To Scheduling

by Thomas Tuna

Wednesday is a bad day to scream.

Jenna Ortega is the latest Scream alum who is not planning to return to the next entry in the franchise, following Melissa Barrera being removed from the cast. But Ortega will be absent for an entirely different reason.

As reported, Barrera was fired from Scream 7 due to negative responses to social media posts she wrote concerning the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict.

Ortega, on the other hand, will not be able to reprise her role of Tara Carpenter because she’ll be busy filming Season 2 of the Netflix hit Wednesday. In addition, the actor may be tied up shooting the Beetlejuice reboot, according to a report on Deadline.

There has been no news yet concerning the shooting schedule, screenwriters or casting choices for the next Scream, but it has been reported that Christopher Landon (Happy Death Day) will sit in the director’s chair.
