During a panel at PaleyFest last night, Scream Queens co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk spoke about the upcoming second season of the anthology horror series, offering some details on the plot, as well as confirming the returning cast members from season one. Here’s the report from 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, who graduated from Wallace College in two years and is now training under Dean Munsch to be physician.
On what to expect for the Chanels — who where last seen being committed into a mental institution — 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.
Falchuk also confirmed that cast members Jamie Lee Curtis, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourde, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Niecy Nash and Glen Powell will all be back for season two.
UPDATE: Here’s a brief teaser for the returning cast…
