Fox’s stream of amusing social media teasers for Scream Queens season 2 has another new addition today, as star Lea Michele posted a fresh clip to her Twitter. Clocking in at just under a minute, it’s our first look at her character this season. The twisted and deranged Hester is back!

Last time we saw Hester she had just brokered a sketchy deal with dean Munsch, who’s played by Jamie Lee Curtis. With three years having passed since the events of season one, you might think their alliance has remained true. While it’s hard to tell if Hester is working with Munsch, or is another one of her minions at the medical clinic, I don’t think that matters much for now. The purpose of this clip is, as Curtis’ character says, to see the look on Emma Roberts’ face when she sees Hester wearing a Hannibal Lecter mask.
Of course, it’s not just Roberts vs. Michele vs. Curtis, as many of those Scream Queens from season 1 return for this sophomore slew of episodes. Things kick off with the season 2 premiere on September 20, when we’ll be greeted by newcomers John Stamos, Leslie Jones, Colton Haynes, James Earl, and Taylor Lautner, as well as returning cast members Billie Lourd, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Niecy Nash and Glen Powell.
