The fresh hell we’ve been living in is finally over. On Friday, Fox officially announced the our favorite dramedy, “Scream Queens,” will be returning to the small screen for another deadly season.
The network confirmed the show’s Season 2 renewal during the 2016 Television Critics Association press tour, in addition to revealing that the sophomore season of the slasher series would be set in a hospital.
“It’s going to take place in a hospital and explore some of the most interesting medical fascinomas,” Gary Newman, CEO of Fox Television Group, revealed. “This is something [co-creator] Ryan Murphy loves and had a lot of fun with on ‘Nip/Tuck,’ and he, Brad [Falchuk] and Ian [Brennan] are going to infuse that sensibility on ‘Scream Queens.’”
“Nip/Tuck,” which premiered in 2003, aired for six seasons and featured some of the wildest surgeries, from the removal of a patient’s nipples (so that she could look more like Barbie) to a penis reduction. With that said, we can only image what sort of scandalous medical marvels the “Scream Queens” creators will have up their scrubs when the Fox drama returns.

Deadline reports Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role as Dean Munsch — but she's not the only Wallace University alum set to return.
“Ryan definitely intends to bring some of the actors from the first installment back,” Fox’s Dana Walden dished. “I believe they will be the same characters.”
Here’s hoping bad girl Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts), Kappa Kappa Taus’ former president, is one of the characters returning to the “Scream Queens” plot. After all, what would we do without her flawlessly horrific one-liners?
