The Original Trio (also known as Legacy Trio and The Originals) is a group represented by The Original Woodsboro Murders survivors, consisting of the main characters of the Scream franchiseSidney Prescott, Gale Weathers and Dewey Riley.

Originally being apart, their paths first crossed during the first Woodsboro massacre started by Billy Loomis and Stu Macher.

After surviving the event, the three later joined together as an informal team, becoming near and dear to each other. Their paths crossed at each new massacre thereafter, making them an unstoppable team. Thanks to their different qualities and cohesion, they managed to survive 4 series of murders together.

David Arquette, Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox played their roles together over the course of 5 movies.

  • They are one of the few groups of survivors of the horror franchises and slashers that have managed to appear in five films in the series.
    • However, the trio was destined to break up after the tragic death of Dewey Riley following the reboot of the franchise from Radio Silence.
    • The trend about old characters returning to new franchise movies and their subsequent deaths was also mocked in Scream (2022), which makes meta comments about Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy, where the focus shifts to new characters, Han Solo dying, and Luke and Leia in the later sequels.
  • Scream VI was the first film in the franchise without the trio - Neve Campbell and David Arquette did not return to their roles (however, their characters are referenced throughout the film). Gale Weathers, played by Courteney Cox, was the only character to appear in all of the franchise's current films.
