It’s time to scream for Scream Queens season 2. After the cast and plot details were announced during the show’s PaleyFest panel, Fox released a brief announcement video teasing the upcoming hospital setting.
Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourde, Glen Powell, Niecy Nash, and Jamie Lee Curtis will feature in the second season. Executive producer Brad Falchuck explained, “Dean Munsch [Curtis] has moved on to great success. She’s abolished the Greek system in the country, she’s written her book, she’s traveled the world, and she says, ‘I need a new mission. I need a new battle.’ And she identifies healthcare as her new battle.”
The Scream Queens teaser, which you can watch below, features an image of a hospital bed in the center of dark hallway as the names of the returning cast members pass over the screen.
Aside from the intel from PaleyFest, most of the cast aren’t aware of what’s coming for their characters. Before the panel, Nash told EW she hopes Denise becomes President of the U.S., while Breslin suspects her character might want to exact some revenge of her own.
Michele, on the other hand, seems to know exactly what’s in store for Hester. “She’s done killing as far as I know, and I’m very excited about my storyline for next year,” she told EW and People. “Ryan told me all about it. I know everything that I’m doing next year, and I’m really excited about it. My character’s storyline is reminiscent of a very famous horror film, and I love horror films, so I was really excited about that.”
