John Stamos’ ‘Scream Queens’ canceled at FOX
Won’t be returning for another season
Updated May 15: Soaps.com has learned that FOX has canceled its American comedy horror series, which premiered on September 22, 2015 and ran just two seasons.
Back on June 27, 2016, “General Hospital” alum John Stamos (Port Charles’ Blackie Parrish) had joined Fox’s “Scream Queens” for its second season. The hit show’s first season centered around the fictitious Wallace University at which the sorority Kappa Kappa Tau became targeted by a serial killer who donned the university’s Red Devil mascot as their disguise. At its conclusion the surviving sorority sisters found themselves locked in a mental hospital, where the Red Devil followed them.
Emma Roberts (“American Horror Story”), Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine”), Billie Lourd (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”), Lea Michele (“Glee”), Jamie Lee Curtis (“Halloween”), Niece Nash (“Reno 911”), Glen Powell (“The Expendables 3 “) and Keke Palmer (“Grease Live!”) are all returning for the new season. Stamos is expected to play Dr. Brock Holt, a brilliant but secretive head surgeon employed at the hospital. Taylor Lautner (“Twilight” franchise) has also been cast as Dr. Cassidy Cascade.
