Fox is prepping audiences to go under the knife – rather brutally, as it were – with a snappy 30-second teaser for Scream Queens season 2. The brief promo shows off the trio of leads, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin and Billie Lourd, confident and dressed to the nines as they saunter down a hallway. It’s a revealing teaser for the simple reason that The Chanels were last seen carted off to the slammer. So why are they looking too cool for school?
That’ll be the three year time-jump between seasons. No longer behind bars, the girls now work at an asylum owned and run by their former Dean, Cathy Munsch. Roberts told crowds at Comic-Con last week that the Chanels “are trying to remain glamorous despite the fact that they’re broke and have to work.”
Scream Queens is fast approaching its season 2 premiere date of September 20, when we’ll find out just exactly what the former sorority girls are like out in the real world. The sophomore season will find the gang joined by newcomers John Stamos, Leslie Jones, Colton Haynes, James Earl, and Taylor Lautner, as well as returning cast members Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Keke Palmer, Niecy Nash and Glen Powell.
