FOX has yet to publicly confirm a second season of Scream Queens, but the cast continues to talk as though it’s a done deal.
Speaking to Variety, Lea Michele spoke without disclaimer about the “really fun” plans in store for the horror anthology’s second season:
I do know what Ryan’s plan is and it’s really fun. It’s an homage to another classic horror film. This year was “Heathers.” Next season would be a take on another classic girl film. I’ve had a great time playing Hester, and hopefully she’ll be back to play next year.
On who else might return in Season 2:
We’re playing the same characters in a new location. We would all go somewhere, and it’s explained why we’re going where we’re going. Hopefully Emma Roberts will be back for sure, too. (As for everyone else), it depends on how many gift baskets to Ryan Murphy Productions people can send in time. I think the cast is so incredible. I know Ryan is loyal to everyone, so hopefully everyone will be able to come back at least for something.
