Actress Courteney Cox has confirmed she will return as Gale Weathers in the new ‘Scream 5’ film. 

The 56 year-old Friends star announced the news on Instagram to her 9.9 million followers with a picture of the iconic Ghostmask face. 

The caption in the video said: “I can’t wait to see this face again.”

Cox appeared in the first Scream film which was released in 1996 and has been in all the films since. 

They have all been directed by Wes Craven and have grossed over $600m at the box office.

The news comes three months after her ex David Arquette also confirmed he will be returning to his role of Sheriff Dewey Riley in the horror film. 

Fans of the film have since gone into meltdown after Cox’s announcement, as one wrote: “COURTENEY JUST CONFIRMED GALE WEATHERS IS COMING BACK TO US FOR SCREAM 5! I REPEAT GALE WEATHERS IS COMING BACK TO US FOR SCREAM 5!”
