After the foundational plans for the upcoming #season had been laid out during the panel, the #cast began to reminisce on the moments that stood out from the series’ Kappa storyline. Chanel #3, played by Billie Lourd, expressed her love for her fuzzy earmuffs. “She never took the muffs off while we were filming,” said Roberts. Nash, channeling her inner Denise Hemphill, expressed her moments of improv as her most memorable moment: “I would always wonder what take they were going to use!”
“I need to know what happens to Denise Hemphill,” quipped Nash. “Well, she’s done her time in Quantico, which of course leads her to being FBI,” said Falchuk.
“We’ve started a Twitter hash tag to find the hunky men,” joked Curtis. “Again, this is breaking news that none of us up here even knew before.” Equally curious, Niecy Nash, returning as Denise Hemphill, echoed fans’ demand to know what happened to the dedicated officer.
Speaking with THR prior to the panel, Fulchuk explained the inspiration behind season two’s hospital setting. “We looked at the horror movie model and saw this season as a sequel. Just like Friday the 13th and Halloween, #Scream #Queens‘ second season is a continuation of the characters we all know,” he said, before adding, “Wait a minute. Halloween #2 was in a hospital.”
“Dean Munsch has taken her passion for education and brought it into the healthcare system. She has purchased a hospital,” said Falchuk. Jumping ahead in time, returning character Zayday Williams, played by Palmer, will be a medical school graduate working with the Dean. As for the rest of the girls, they have a similar tie to Munsch’s new plan as a medical head.
As each cast member raised their hands, Curtis, who will reprise her role as Dean Cathy Munsch in season two, laid out the facts. “This is the first we’re revealing this much of the cast. We’re all coming back.”
Scream Queens co-creator Brad Falchuk joined series stars Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Niecy Nash, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin and Billie Lourd at day two of PaleyFest.
