Ryan Murphy Hasn’t Abandoned ‘Scream Queens’ Yet

The creator of American Horror Story (and the upcoming spinoff American Horror Stories) may be looking to resurrect another horror (comedy) project.

Scream Queens–which only ran for two short seasons on Fox before being dumped in May of 2017–hardly had enough time to really establish itself in the collective consciousness. But it may get another opportunity, if an Instagram post by co-creator Ryan Murphy can be believed.

The much-discussed post, as reported by cbr.com, had Murphy responding to a fan’s post inquiring about any possible future for Scream Queens.

When a fan posted “Renew Scream Queens”, Murphy responded: “Working on that!” Whether that means he is working on reviving the show or actually working on new plots and scripts is a matter of conjecture. But fans are hopeful.

After all, late last year, Murphy went on record as saying that bringing the series back was a possibility. So, perhaps, these words weren’t merely pap for the masses.

The first season of the campy (but frightening) show–which starred Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween) and Emma Roberts (Scream 4) and was written by Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan–featured a sorority of young women who were targets of a serial killer sporting a Wallace University devil mascot.

The same characters returned for the next season, but the setting shifted to a rundown hospital and the threat was a new killer, this time wearing a green demon outfit.

It’s also worth mentioning that late last year, Murphy said both Curtis and Roberts are up for a Scream Queens revival. “Emma said she would do it, Lea Michelle said she would do it, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd are all in,” he said. “So, it would depend if Fox wants to do it. I think we’d all do it.”

So, keep reading Horror News Network to see if Ryan Murphy is serious about bringing Scream Queens back from the dead and adding it to his horror stable.
