It looks like Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) is going to be involved in a major accident in Season 2 of “Scream Queens.”
On Wednesday, Sept. 14, Breslin was spotted in a full body brace on the Los Angeles set of the FOX series. In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the 20-year-old actress was seen wearing a neck brace with her arms fastened up on stiff metal supports. Her arm rests were attached in a wide leather belt, which was wrapped around Breslin’s waist.
Despite being stuck in a body brace, Breslin still looked fabulous in her trademark Chanel outfit: a pale lilac cotton dress, which she paired with feathery purple shawl and ankle-strap sandals. Click here and here to see Breslin’s photos.
While it’s unclear at this point why Breslin was wearing a full body brace, whatever happened to her character could be worse, as there’s a new killer on the loose in the hospital-set Season 2 of the comedy-horror series.
Series co-creator Brad Falchuk revealed at Paley Fest (via Deadline) last March that Chanel #5, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) and Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd) have all “flipped and taken their education seriously while in the mental institution” where they were last seen at the end of Season 1. In Season 2, they are going to be medical students under the guidance of Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis), who now runs a hospital, called C.U.R.E. Institute.
During the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con last July, Falchuk’s fellow series creator Ian Brennan revealed that the trio is “down and out” when fans first encounter them next installment.
“They’ve fallen from glamour, but they’re trying to hold onto it as much as they can,” Roberts added during the pop convention. “It’s funny seeing them try to hold onto their style when they have no money.”
“Scream Queens” Season 2 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. on FOX.
