That’s a wrap! Courteney Cox took to Instagram Thursday to celebrate the end of production of the upcoming fifth installment of the Shout franchise.

“The screaming has just ended,” Cox wrote in the post. “This all started 25 years ago, led by the beloved Wes Craven. Returning to the set 25 years later, I wasn’t sure what to expect.”
“What I found was an amazing new cast and two super talented directors,” Cox continued, referring to Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, with whom he posed in one of the photos he shared in the post.
“I’m sure Wes will be very proud,” concluded Cox, with special recognition for the franchise’s original creator and writer, Kevin Williamson. “Thank you @kevwilliamson for creating this legacy. #Screammovie”
The slideshow also included a photo of the film’s poster, which features the iconic Ghostface mask from the film, and a snapshot of Cox standing on set alongside his co-star Neve Campbell and Williamson.
