I agree. I personally didn't want Sidney in at least 2-3 sequels so they could focus on the other characters and bring Sidney back once her kids are teenagers and can be targeted by Ghostface. Basically, let the requel develop it's characters, then bring Sidney back for her own trilogy. I feel like it would cause more excitement for fans because they'd have a chance to miss her.If Neve doesn't return for any of them, I feel like 5 did send her off well.
"I'll survive. I always do."
I'm just wondering how they will address her not being in the movie. Will Gale text her ala Samantha in the new Sex and the City?
Gale: Hey Sid. Ghostface is back.
Sid: Goodluck bitch! Luv ya xoxox
I'm inclined to believe what we heard initially - that she was only due to appear for a stinger right at the end, where she either answers a Ghostface call, or is attacked and it's left on a cliffhanger.I hope that after the film is released the directors/writers let us know how she would’ve fit into the film had Neve signed on.

But....the only real way to have a completely Sid-free Scream franchise is to kill her. And, honestly, I think that would kill the franchise too.
As much as I'd like to agree, I don't think they're entirely comparable. Halloween 4 made $17m worldwide. Even adjusting for inflation, that's $40-something million. That's what Scream aims for in opening weekend.I'm pretty sure there are many others, like myself, who would enjoy a Scream movie without Sidney. I don't honestly think the franchise would die off without her. They just need to be clever but introducing and developing other interesting characters for you to route for.
Halloween 4 was a surprise hit at the time, despite not having Jamie Lee Curtis in (and basically killing her off, off screen) and fans enjoyed the new characters they introduced, before messing it all up in the subsequent sequels.
It can be done. If anything, I think the best way of killing a franchise is to play it safe and predictable.
I imagine they’re probably re-editing the trailer as we speak to make sure Jenna is in every frame of it.
