While it’s been claimed that this has nothing to do with the fall out of the decision to remove Melissa from the film series, Jenna has supported Melissa on social media in the wake of her dismissal.
In November, news broke that Melissa Barrera had been dropped from Scream 7 following comments and posts she had shared on social media about Israel and in support of Palestine.
This means Scream 7, if it goes ahead, will not include sisters Sam and Tara Carpenter, who were both central to the new storyline.
In their report, Deadline writes: "We understand that Ortega’s exit from the next Scream was discussed before the actors strike. A script for Scream VII is not ready yet."
Prior to Deadline publishing their article, rumours that Jenna had quit the series began circulating and going viral on social media but had not been confirmed or verified by a representative or a trusted outlet.
Jenna is reportedly set to film Wednesday season 2 in Ireland, starting in April and moving into the summer.
There’s currently no other information regarding the cast for Scream 7. Without Melissa and Jenna, the cast could still include Courteney Cox, Mason Gooding and Jasmin Savoy Brown. It’s also unclear if Neve Campbell will return.
