John Stamos’ ‘Grandfathered’ was axed from Fox, but clearly the network is all about keeping him on. Have mercy!
John Stamos is the latest star to join the A-list cast of Scream Queens, which is returning to Fox with the season two premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 20. Season two is set to also include many familiar faces from last season including Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, and Keke Palmer.
The new characters have officially began checking in for season two. The show is moving from college to a hospital (talk about creepy!), and John Stamos, 52, will play a doctor! Yes ER fans, another doctor. John will play Dr. Brock Holt, a brilliant, yet secretive surgeon.
We told you that they were looking for men to play “three hunky doctors,” and we can say — they succeeded with that casting.
We last saw the Chanels sentenced to an insane asylum, but the creators have revealed that since then, they have been exonerated and accepted to medical school (quite the jump!). Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) will have also bought the hospital they’re working in, hoping to fix the system. She hires Zayday (Keke). Sounds fun, right?
So, we’re sure John’s role will be quite amazing, and it’s not the first time he’s paired up with Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the masterminds behind Scream Queens. He guest-starred on The New Normal and played a super sexy dentist in Glee.
Plus we know Ryan has always been a huge fan — he actually wrote Nip/Tuck for him, John recently told Details magazine. He didn’t take it because “the person with whom I was in a relationship at the time read the script and said, ‘That’s demeaning toward women.'” Cough, Rebecca Romijn, cough.
HollywoodLifers, are you excited to see John in Scream Queens? You can also see him on three episodes of season two of Fuller House coming soon to Netflix.
