‘Scream Queens’ Cancelled by Fox
Scream Queens has been canceled after two seasons.
Season two of the show, created by Glee favorites Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, came to an end in December, and fans were desperate to know if a third season would be commissioned.
Fox network chairs Dana Walden and Gary Newman broke the news on Monday that they had decided not to renew the show for a third installment.
“It feels as if it was a complete series,” Newman told reporters during a conference call, according to Variety. “We have no plans to go back and tell more stories there. We won’t be seeing Scream Queens this season.”
Fans knew the writing was on the wall for the show in January when Fox bosses stated they were still considering whether to give season three the green light.
Scream Queens boasted an all-star cast, including Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis and Glee star Lea Michele, though it was reported in February that Michele had been released from her Fox contract to star in a comedy pilot for rival channel ABC.
Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd and Keke Palmer were also featured on the series.
Fans have taken to Twitter to share their disappointment at the news, with show star Curtis posting a message of thanks to the show’s loyal followers.
“2 the fans & friends in front of & behind the mask I thank u 4 a fun & funny run. It was me all along after all! @ScreamQueens,” she teased.
