There’s more to the story! Scream Queens had a short-lived time on screen, but the star-studded cast has continued to find success following the show’s cancelation.
The satirical slasher ran from 2015 to 2016. It featured an ensemble cast that included Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Billie Lourd, Lea Michele, Abigail BreslinAnd Keke Palmer. The first season of the Fox series introduced viewers to members of a sorority that were targeted by a serial killer due to their school’s dark past.
During the sophomore season, many of the cast members reprised their roles as the story moved to a hospital setting — with a new killer at large. After the show’s end, creator Ryan Murphy said he wasn’t opposed to a reboot due to Scream Queens‘ cult success.
“So many people recently have been asking me about rebooting or continuing SCREAM QUEENS (RIP, taken too soon). Emma, Billie, Lea, and I have thought about it. However, we are still asking the question: Should it be a six-episode limit? A catch-up film? Who should I bring back with me? We would love to hear your thoughts. So many questions…,” Murphy wrote via Instagram in February 2019.
Later, the executive producer elaborated how. Scream Queenscould return to the small-screen screen. “I would have to say that the answer to that lies in the studio who made it,” he told DeadlineNovember 2019. “Obviously I work for Netflix now, but if I could do anything to bring it back. Emma said she would, Lea Michelle said that she would, Jamie Lee Curtis and Abigail Breslin agreed, and Billie Lourd is all in. So it would depend if Fox wants to do it.”
He added: “I think we’d all do it. I think we’re waiting for them to call us. I know the show is very popular and had a real spike in popularity on Hulu.”
Roberts, for her part, revealed that she’s “always thinking about ways” to bring her character Chanel back. “It’s funny because that show was now so long ago, and I still see things coming up on my Instagram of people just kind of loving it and parodying it, and doing TikToks and all that,” she told Entertainment TonightIn June 2022. “It just makes me so happy that she’s really stood the test of time.”
