American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has teased a possible revival of his short-lived slasher-comedy series Scream Queens in the past. And today he's back talking about it and says that the show's original cast, including Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michelle, Abigail Breslin, and Billie Lourd are all in for returning should the series get another season.
When asked recently about the possibility of another season of Scream Queens, Ryan Murphy said:
"I don't know. I would have to say that the answer to that lies in the studio who made it. Obviously, I work for Netflix now, but if I could do anything to bring it back. Emma said she would do it, Lea Michelle said she would do it, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd are all in. So it would depend if Fox wants to do it. 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. That was another one when we were making it; I don't know if time has caught up to it, or it takes a while for people to get things, but yes, I'd be up for it. The fans should write Fox and say they want this, Fox Studios and the network."
Now I don't know about you guys but, personally, I would love to see Ryan Murphy and the original cast return for more Scream Queens. In the past, Murphy teased that he might bring back the show for a six-episode limited series or a catch-up movie. As a fan of the first season of the show, I think a six-episode limited series is the best way to go.
After all, if the show returns to the Kappa House murders, as teased in the final moments of the lackluster second season when the first season's masked-murderer The Red Devil popped up in the back of Emma Robert's car, then the show still has a lot of ground to cover. I mean if push comes to shove I'd absolutely take a catch-up movie. I'm only saying that six hours of Scream Queens is better than two. But maybe that's just me.
For those of you out there that might not be familiar with the show, Scream Queens was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan and aired for two seasons over on Fox. The first season followed a sorority, lead by Emma Roberts which becomes plagued by a serial killer known only as The Red Devil. The second season was a soft reboot of sorts and followed the returning (surviving) cast as they are - you guessed it - plagued by yet another serial killer, this time in a hospital.
On top of the above-mention cast, the series also featured the likes of Skyler Samuels, Glen Powell, Diego Boneta, Keke Palmer, Oliver Hudson, Nasim Pedrad, Kirstie Alley, Taylor Lautner, John Stamos, and Ariana Grande. This update comes to us from an interview Ryan Murphy recently held over at Deadline.
