What happens in the Scream 6 post-credits scene? (Ok, spoilers ahead!)
The post-credits scene is a single line of dialogue spoken by Mindy Meeks-Martin (Jasmin Savoy Brown), who looks right into the camera and says: “Not every movie needs a post-credits scene.” That’s it. End of movie.
Why the Scream 6 post-credits scene matters
The clip appears to come from a scene earlier in the movie where Mindy breaks down the rules of surviving a horror franchise, which according to her is what the story has now become. So it’s a fitting nod to other major franchises like Marvel that turned the credits into valuable marketing real estate. Even if Scream does become its own cinematic universe, it will still keep breaking all the rules.
