Did the latest promo for Season 2 of “Scream Queens” just reveal the new villains of the show?
In the 20-second mark of the newly released teaser, titled “Welcome to the Hospital,” Jerry O’Connell’s character is seen dumping a male body into what appears to be a radioactive swamp near the hospital owned by Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis). The body seemingly belongs to one of the hospital’s patients, but it’s unclear whether the man is already dead or still alive.
As seen in the video, O’Connell’s character is with Laura Bell Bundy’s character, who appears to assist him in the top-secret deed.
O'Connell will make his debut appearance in the season premiere of the comedy-horror series.
At the end of the Season 1 finale of “Scream Queens,” Hester (Lea Michele) was revealed to be the ultimate villain. She was the brains of the Red Devil team that was responsible for all the murders that took place at Wallace University. Michele, however, recently revealed that her character is claiming that she’s no longer one of the bad guys in the forthcoming season.
“As the murders start to happen [in the hospital], everyone is obviously thinking that it’s Hester again,” the 30-year-old actress said told TV Guide last month. “[But] she's quite adamant that she is not the killer this season, but that she will try and help them figure out who the killer is.”
Do you think O’Connell and Bundy’s characters are the new baddies of the comedy-horror series? Or are they just taking instructions from someone else? Share your thoughts in the comments!
