Ryan Murphy took to social media to hint that a Scream Queens revival could be possible. Here’s what we know so far about a potential reboot.
Fans of the horror-comedy Scream Queens should be very excited based on a particular Instagram post from the series creator, Ryan Murphy. The short-lived, yet highly underrated series, was canceled by Fox after two seasons. According to Murphy’s Instagram, he is considering a push to revive the series for a third season.
Scream Queens first premiered on Fox in 2015. The series focused on a group of sorority members who are targeted by a serial killer. Unlike American Horror Story, which was also created by Murphy, Scream Queens had a much more comedic tone.
Over the course of two seasons, it starred big names such as Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Billie Lourd, Glen Powell, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Oliver Hudson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kirstie Alley, Taylor Lautner, and John Stamos. Despite the stellar cast, the series was axed after the conclusion of the second season.
Murphy has apparently been in discussion with some of the cast members regarding a reboot. In the social media post, he mentions Roberts, Lourd, and Michele as being the trio involved in the revival talks. Murphy highlights a few key questions he’s facing with the reboot possibility.
Whether it’s a limited season 3 revival or a follow-up movie, Murphy certainly has options. Now that he’s focusing on his recent deal with Netflix, Murphy can use his new partnership as the home for a Scream Queens revival. Netflix is no stranger when it comes to reviving series that were previously canceled at various other networks.
If a Scream Queens revival is in the cards for Netflix, the streaming service would probably try to get their hands on the first two seasons. This would open up the door for a wider audience who missed out when the show aired on Fox. For fans who were there from the start, they’d have a shot at revisiting the lives of some of Murphy’s most eccentric characters to date.
If you’re curious about the future of Chanel, Chanel #3, or Cathy Munsch, you might want to share your thoughts. Murphy is clearly gauging the interest of viewers to see if he should pursue with some sort of reboot. The more support that comes from Scream Queens fans, the better the chance of an actual revival. If not, here’s hoping that more Scream Queens alums join Roberts and Lourd on new seasons of American Horror Story.
