The following information was taken from the Season Two page on the Scream Queens Wiki.

Season Two of Scream Queens was announced by Fox on January 15, 2016.[1] Production for the second season officially began on February 18, 2016.[2]


Season Two graduates from the college campus and into an all-new location, as a terrifyingly funny murder mystery will begin once again. This time, the show will be set in a hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation.[1]


  • The Chanels have been legally released from the asylum and will be attending medical school to study to become doctors.[3]
    • The Chanels will be freed in a "Making a Murderer" kind of way.[4]
  • After abolishing the college Greek system and traveling the world in search of a new mission, Cathy Munsch has decided to buy and run the hospital where the Chanels are enrolled with the goal of taking on incurable cases and fixing the broken system.[3]
  • Zayday Williams graduated from Wallace University in two years and is now training as a physician under Munsch.[3][6]
  • Hester Ulrich will not be the killer this season. However, she will be "intimately involved" with the murder and mayhem that will ensue within the walls of the hospital.[7][8]
  • After spending some time training in Quantico, Denise Hemphill has been promoted to a high-ranking FBI agent and will become an integral part of the hospital murder investigation.[3]
  • There will be three new male cast members, who will all play "studly" doctors. The actors will be in their late 20s or early 30s.[8]
    • Chad Radwell will be involved with these three new doctors.[9]
    • He will do "a little bit perverted" things in the hospital.[10]
  • Chanel will "not look as 'Chanel' as she did before". She will receive a makeover and have a new love interest, played by a "very, very handsome man".[5]
  • There will be a time jump between the first and second seasons.[11]
  • There will be more horror film and pop culture references in this season.[12]
  • This season will be a lot "darker" than Season One.[13]
  • This season will have high levels of "confusion", and the characters will interact with patients "oddly".[5]
  • The hospital setting will draw inspiration from the classic horror franchise Halloween, which was partially set in a hospital and starred Curtis in four installments.[8]


  • Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan officially started production of Season Two on February 18, 2016.[14]
  • Filming for the second season of Scream Queens is being relocated to Los Angeles after shooting its first season in New Orleans.[15]
    • Filming for the second season will begin in July 2016.[16]
