Scream spoilers follow.

The Scream franchise makes its long-awaited return next month, with the fifth instalment hitting theatres.

Making their return to Woodsboro will be original stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette but one fan-favourite who won't be returning is Jamie Kennedy, whose character Randy sadly met his end in Scream 2.

The film will also see the introduction of new, younger, characters played by Marley Shelton, Jack Quaid, Jenna Ortega, Dylan Minnette, Melissa Barrera, Jasmin Savoy Brown and Mason Gooding.

But, while Randy may be gone, he's certainly not forgotten, as the film's TikTok account has confirmed that he has a connection to two of the new characters.

Yes, Mindy Meeks-Martin (Savoy Brown) and Chad Meeks-Martin (Gooding) are the niece and nephew of Randy! Let's hope they have some of their uncle's expertise when it comes to evading serial killers.

Meanwhile, Kennedy recently addressed a fan theory that has been doing the rounds online — that this time around the Ghostface killer is none other than Campbell's Sidney Prescott.

"I wouldn't want to see Sidney as a killer," Kennedy said. "No, I don't think that's her at all. I think she's just an empathetic person who's had a hard life. But I think if Scream keeps going, I don't want to be this person, but somebody may have to go. Somebody's got to go."

Kennedy was also recently asked if he would ever consider returning to the series.

"If I came back, it could bastardise it," he said. "But if there was a plausible way that wouldn't piss off the audience, it might be interesting to entertain.

"But, as of right now, I believe I'm deader than dead, and I think that's what makes it good is the fact that you are dead and that's why it's strong because you died."

Scream hacks its way into cinemas on January 14, 2022.
