Courteney Cox shared a string of throwbacks as Scream 5 officially wrapped.

The Friends actress reprised her role as the iconic Gale Weathers in the franchise, with the sequel – simply called Scream – set to be released in 2022.

Taking to Instagram, the 56-year-old blessed us all with photos from her time on set, spanning more than two decades.

That fringe was left out of the carousel…

‘Scream just wrapped,’ she began the caption. ‘This all started 25 years ago directed by the beloved Wes Craven. 

‘Walking back on the set 25 years later, I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was an incredible new cast and two uber talented directors. 

‘I’m sure Wes will be so proud. Thank you @kevwilliamson for creating this legacy. #screammovie.’

Right on cue, fans shared their excitement at Courteney’s post in the comments section.

Flooding the upload with praise, an Instagram user penned: ‘I can’t wait to see this.’

‘Sooo excited!! I LOVED Scream all those years ago and still do,’ a follower replied.

‘Can’t wait to see you and Neve kicking Ghostface’s ass again,’ another said.

As one added: ‘2022 though? Like we need it now….’

We couldn’t agree more.

Writer Kevin Williamson also couldn’t help marking the occasion – giving us a glimpse at the gang on set – including Courteney and Neve Campbell.

‘That’s a wrap on Scream, which I’m excited to announce is the official title of the next film,’ he tweeted. ‘Nearly 25 years ago, when I wrote Scream and Wes Craven brought it to life, I could not have imagined the lasting impact it would have on you, the fans.

‘I’m excited for you to return to Woodsboro and get really scared again. I believe Wes would’ve been so proud of the film that Matt and Tyler are making. 

‘I’m thrilled to be reunited with Neve, Courteney, David and Marley, and to be working alongside a new filmmaking team and incredible cast of newcomers that have come together to continue Wes’s legacy with the upcoming relaunch of the franchise that I hold so dear to my heart.’

He added: ‘See you in theatres January 2022. #ScreamMovie @ScreamMovies’

Scream 5 will be released in cinemas on January 14, 2022.
