While also considered as an anthology, Murphy already explained how "Scream Queens" will be different from "AHS".
It looks like Scream Queens will not only be back for season two, but it will be just as starpacked as ever with Murphy firing both barrels at potential castings and maybe a few more familiar faces will be decorating the bloodsoaked show when it returns in 2016. It has also been reported that a new actress joins the cast as a mistress, plus the official synopsis has been released. As stroppy spoilt Kappa-Kappa Tau Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) was forced to take in new pledges by Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis), the girls were terrorised by someone in a Red Devil costume. There has been no announcement regarding its renewal, but series co-creator Ryan Murphy is quite positive about a second installment.
"They get everything but the last act because I don't trust them". "I haven't said anything to Ryan yet".
"Scream Queens" returns to Fox on Tuesday night, November 3, after a week of hiatus. These included pop sensation Ariana Grande, who impressed in her minor part as one of Chanel's flunkies before being bumped off in gloriously satirical fashion by the devil killer (only finally submitting to her injuries after updating her Twitter status), while Glee alumna Lea Michele was nearly unrecognisable as a dowdy teenager with a spinal disfigurement.
While Murphy is playing it close to the vest, he may have inadvertently revealed one aspect of the season finale with his acknowledgment that Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, and Keke Roberts will make it to the final scene of the Scream Queens season finale.
A copycat slasher was on the loose, dressed as the devil and with a taste for highly self-aware crimes (in a straight lift from Wes Craven's Scream he mockingly informed one of his targets that he was going to dispatch her right before plunging the blade).
"It's similar to American Horror Story in that it's anthological but different in that at the end of the first season there will only be four characters out of 25 left", Murphy said.
Fox has yet to renew "Scream Queens", but it seems like season 2 is already in the works. "[And in the] second season, the survivors go off to a new venue - a horror-based venue - and then they have to fight a new killer, a new villain, a new threat. That's the format of the show", he added.
Mr. Murphy did hint that there might be another big pop star coming to Season 2 of Scream Queens, but this time fans could expect a male singer.
