Fans of American Horror Story have more than just the fifth season Hotel to look forward to this autumn as creator Ryan Murphy is treating us to a stylish new show, Scream Queens, which will air over on FOX in the States.
Scream Queens is set to be something special for horror fans as it will star the legendary ‘Scream Queen’ herself Jamie Lee Curtis. This Friday’s edition of Entertainment Weekly have published a number of images providing us with the first look at the new show and Curtis’s new role.
The series will also star Coven and Freak Show favourite Emma Roberts and Glee star Lea Michele bringing together the actresses from Murphy’s most successful television shows.
Abigail Breslin is also set to star, Breslin is one of Hollywood’s most talented young actresses at the moment and no stranger to the horror genre due to roles in Zombieland, Haunter and most recently the eagerly anticipated Final Girl. Singer and former Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande has been confirmed in a recurring role.
Following a sorority pledge gone wrong back in 1995 a series of grizzly murders take place on a college campus to mark the 20th anniversary, leading to the return of the Red Devil. Roberts and Curtis’s characters take centre stage with Roberts playing the president of the sorority known as the Kappa society and Curtis as the university’s dean who has placed the sorority under threat prior to the deadly massacre.
In true Ryan Murphy style Scream Queens will hopefully bring in strong and compelling storytelling, engaging characters and plenty of disturbing twists that made American Horror Story so popular! Just like American Horror Story, Scream Queens will be an anthology with the survivors moving on to a new terror elsewhere!
