Get set for the new killer comedy-horror series from the award-winning team behind Glee and American Horror Story.

Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan have teamed up once again to create Scream Queens, which will make its horrifying debut on TEN on Wednesday, September 23, at 9.00pm, followed on the same night by episode two on ELEVEN at 10.00pm.

From September 30, the series will run on ELEVEN at 9.30pm.

 

At Wallace University, Kappa House is the most sought-after sorority for pledges. It is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its queen bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts).

When anti-Kappa Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell breaks loose. A string of murders follows, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time.

 

Part-black comedy and part-slasher flick, Scream Queens is a modern take on the classic whodunit, where every character has a motive for murder or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

Scream Queens’ cast includes Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedra, Oliver Hudson, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Diego Bonita, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande.
