Scream Queens confirms which cast members will be back for the second installment of the horror comedy series.
At Paleyfest it was announced that Jamie Lee Curtis, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin, and Billie Lourde will all be back as well as the previously announced cast of Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and Niecy Nash.
According to Deadline:
“Dean Munsch 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 is like, ‘I need a new mission’,” Falchuk said. This leads her into the health care field, where she decides to purchase a hospital and “runs the hospital the way she sees fit” taking on the seemingly incurable “cases that no one else will take.” Falchuk says the hospital will attract great thinkers as well as medical students. One of those great thinkers is Zayday (Palmer), who graduated from Wallace College in two years and is now training under Dean Munsch to be physician.
Falchuk reveals that the girls have “flipped and taken their education seriously while in the institution,” and will become medical students as well. On Michele’s Hester, Falchuk says that in the hospital there will be an aspect of murder and a killer that Hester will be “intimately involved with.” As for Denise, she has joined the FBI and will be involved in the hospital mishaps as well.
