“Good morning, Chanel,” Chanel #3 and Chanel #5 say in the teaser’s opening.
“Good morning, idiot hookers,” replies Chanel #1 (Roberts).
As is apparent in the clip, returnees from Season 1 include Roberts, Michele, Curtis, Keke Palmer and Abigail Breslin. The second season moves from the sorority house to a hospital when Dean Cathy Munsch (Curtis) recruits the Chanels to enroll as medical students at the university’s hospital.
“There is a show on TV that is wacky, bitingly funny and smart,” said Curtis. “And it’s our show.”
Earlier this year, creator Brad Falchuk said that season two’s hospital setting will draw inspiration from the classic horror franchise “Halloween,” which was partially set in a hospital and starred Curtis.
“If you liked the first season, you’re going to love the second,” says Lautner. “It’s funnier, it’s scarier, we’re pushing more boundaries.”
“It’s going to be a crazy ride this year,” Roberts teases.
Principal photography for the second season began last month. “Scream Queens” Season 2 is scheduled to air Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9 p.m.
