It’s official! Season 2 of Fox’s ‘Scream Queens’ will take place inside a hospital, the cast and executive producer Brad Falchuk revealed at PaleyFest 2016 on March 12. To find out what brings the characters to this hospital, and why they’ll stay there, keep reading!
Ever since Season 2 of Scream Queens was announced by Fox, fans have been speculating about where the story will take place. Well, we attended the show’s panel at PaleyFest 2016 on March 12, and not only did executive producer Brad Falchuk reveal the setting, but he also told us which actors will be returning for Season 2!
Brad confirmed that Season 2 of Scream Queens will take place inside a hospital, which is actually what many fans had been assuming since Chanel and her friends ended up in one at the end of Season 1. He also said Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Glen Powell, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd, Keke Palmer, and Niecy Nash will all be returning to the series! All of them, except Glen, attended the panel.
Interestingly, the Chanels will have been exonerated and accepted to medical school when the series returns in the fall, Brad said. Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) will actually buy the hospital where Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) and her friends have enrolled, and one of her first hires will be Zayday Williams (Keke Palmer). As expected, there will also be a lot of murder, and Lea’s Hester will be “intimately involved.” Lea joked, “…with Harry Styles.” She may or may not have been kidding. Officer Denise Hemphill (Niecy Nash) will have joined the FBI, and if Niecy has her way, she’ll still be very suspicious of Zayday Williams! The cast also said Season 2 will be a lot “darker” than Season 1, which ended in December 2015.
