Questions Surround Possible Return Of ‘Scream Queens’

It looks like the Queen may be running out of opportunities to scream.

Jamie Lee Curtis–whose Halloween Kills is slashing up the box office this weekend–doesn’t think another of her horror efforts will get the resurrection fans are hoping for, according to a report on comicbook.com.

Scream Queens–a Ryan Murphy project that lasted just two seasons and 23 episodes on Fox from 2015-2016–has been part of the rumor mill recently, but Curtis is on record as saying the popular series may have run its natural course.

When asked recently if she thought the show may make a comeback, her answer was a disappointing, “I don’t believe so. I think Ryan did what we wanted to do with that.”

The legendary actor said the cast was a “weird and wacky group of people.” The series was a “funny experiment in creating characters, but putting them in another world,” she added. “The writing was so clever, and I made good friends.”

Interestingly enough, Murphy has held out some glimmer of hope for the show’s return some day. “I would say the answer lies in the studio that made it,” he said, adding that several of the actors–including Curtis, Lea Michelle, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd and Emma Roberts–are “all in.”

“So,” Murphy said, “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.”

Scream Queens–created by Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan–followed the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority at Wallace University, a group that becomes the target of a serial killer who uses the school’s Red Devil mascot as a disguise.

The show won the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Most Exciting New Series, and Curtis was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy, in 2015.
