“Scream Queens” star Oliver Hudson may have just spilled the beans about the location of Season 2, should FOX renew the Ryan Murphy horror-comedy series.
In an interview on “Watch What Happens Live,” host Andy Cohen asked Hudson if Murphy has revealed the premise of next season, to which Hudson says, “I have an idea. It’s scary, I’m scared to reveal anything. We don’t even know if it’s gonna be picked up, but whatever — think summer camp.”
That tracks with what some eagle-eyed forum commenters discovered earlier this fall: 20th Century Fox has trademarked “Scream Queens: Summer Camp.”
The series has never been intended to be a limited series or even an anthology series. Murphy confirmed early on that “only four” of the Season 1 characters will survive.
“The second season is the four remaining survivors playing the same characters going to a new ‘Scream Queens’ venue. Then we bring in other people and the death party starts again,” Murphy told Zap2it back in June.
He later amended that statement slightly, telling Zap2it at the TCA summer press tour in August that they might keep an extra person around.
“Four or five [survivors], yeah. We keep bumping it up a little bit because we love so many of the actors and don’t want them out of our lives,” says Murphy. “Every year we’re going to keep probably five characters and then put the characters you know in a whole new setting. So this year will be a goodbye to the sorority world and go off to another venue.”
Place your bets, “Scream Queens” fans — which characters do you hope to see packing their summer camp duffel bags? There are roughly 11 main characters still standing, which means half of the cast will be Red Devil fodder before the season is out.
The “Scream Queens” Season 2 finale airs Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
