As many Kirby fans know by now, there's an Easter egg in Scream confirming that the character, played by Hayden Panettiere, did survive the events of Scream 4. Apparently, there was a point when Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett considered having Panettiere film a proper cameo.

Bettinelli-Olpin told Nerdist that they wanted to address Kirby right from the beginning but weren't sure how, adding: "There was a period during the pre-production where we thought we might be able to even get her in this movie. We had a Zoom with her and she was lovely. And she was like, 'I love Kirby, I’d love to be in it.'"
