Could the rumors be true? Is Harry Styles really starring in Season 2 of ‘Scream Queens’? At the show’s PaleyFest panel on March 12, Lea Michele and the rest of the cast dropped so many hints about his casting that we wouldn’t be surprised to see the 1D star on our TV screen come fall 2016.
When Scream Queens executive producer Brad Falchuk openly discussed Season 2 of the series at PaleyFest 2016 on March 12, he said Lea Michele‘s character, Hester, will be “intimately involved.” He meant with the storyline, but she quickly added, “…with Harry Styles?” And that certainly wasn’t the only time the One Direction singer’s name was brought up at the show’s panel on Saturday evening. So could the rumors of his casting really be true? Here’s what else we were told.
No one actually confirmed Harry’s casting during the panel, but his name was mentioned more than once by the cast of Season 2, which we were told includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Glen Powell, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd, Keke Palmer, and Niecy Nash. Brad actually blamed Lea for starting the Harry Styles rumor, which started circulating online shortly after the Season 1 finale in December.
Later in the panel, the cast then fought over who would be romantically linked to Harry if he does end up starring in Season 2. Lea and Emma both called dibs, while Abigail also seemed interested. As a matter of fact, Emma said any of the guys from One Direction would be welcomed to the show with open arms. Lea actually yelled out “Zayn,” when the cast was asked who they’d like to see guest star on the series. (Can we seriously make that happen?!)
It may be a while before we really find out if Harry’s starring in Season 2, but if we had a nickel for every time the cast teased his casting during the panel, we’d be pretty wealthy right about now.
