When can you stream Scream 6 online?

Just like Scream 5, fans will have to wait until Scream 6 stops showing at cinemas before they can watch the slasher movie online. However, you shouldn't have to wait too long for it. Scream 5 was released digitally on March 1, 2022, less than two months after it debuted. Taking this into consideration, Scream 6 could be available to stream as soon as June this year.

Taking into consideration how successful Scream 6 is, it may show at cinemas longer than Scream 5 did. With this in mind, it's possible that Scream 6 won't be available to stream until more like July/August/September. We'll keep you posted with any updates.

Where can you stream Scream 6 online?

As for where fans can stream Scream 6, the movie is distributed by Paramount Pictures. This means that, just like Scream, Scream 2, Scream 3, Scream 4 and Scream 5, it will be made available to stream on Paramount+.

All you'll need to watch the film is a Paramount+ subscription for $9.99/£6.99 a month. They also offer a free seven-day trial.

Will Scream 6 be on Netflix?

While Scream movies have been available to stream on Netflix in the past (you can currently stream the first Scream film on the platform), it's unlikely that Scream 6 will be added to Netflix. Just like Scream 5, we imagine that Paramount+ will keep the movie only on Paramount+ as an exclusive to encourage people to subscribe to the platform.

However, the movie will also be made available to purchase on DVD or buy digitally on other VOD platforms like Amazon Prime and Apple TV.
