The ladies of Kappa Kappa Tau are back and they’re ready to stir up more deadly drama — this time in the Big Apple!
On Tuesday, the cast of the blood-soaked comedy “Scream Queens” reunited in New York at the 2016 Fox Upfront to discuss Season 2 of the serial killer series. But before Keke Palmer, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd and Jamie Curtis gave any insight on the sophomore installment, they hit the blue carpet to strike some fierce poses.
“Here we are!!” Michele, who portrayed the Season 1 killer Hester, captioned a photo of the fivesome smiling for the cameras. After their to-die-for reunion, the actresses dished some scoop on what to expect in the forthcoming season.
Jamie Lee, who plays the not-so-innocent Dean Munsch, revealed that she “can’t wait for all the funny fury awaiting” fans. “Ryan Murphy [co-creator of the series] and company have scary surprises in store for you!” she teased new, exciting drama.
The new season, which will be filmed in Los Angeles instead of New Orleans, will pick up just where Season 1 left of — in a hospital. Brad Falchuk, co-creator of the show, explained the changed of scenery during the 2016 Paley Fest, revealing that the second season is inspired by the classic slasher series “Halloween,” which starred a young Curtis. Curtis will retire her title of college dean to fulfill a new purpose in the second installment — head honcho of the hospital.
“She will take on the cases no one else will take and the conditions everyone says are incurable,” Falchuk teased as Curtis chimed in, “And fix the broken system!”
Curtis also revealed when “Scream Queens” fans could tune into the knife-swinging series. “Season deux of @screamqueensfox on Tuesdays at 9pm following @newgirlfox,” she told fans via Instagram, giving them a heads up of when they should be blocking off their calendars for the black comedy.
A Season 2 premiere date for “Scream Queens” had yet to be announced by Fox.
