Scream Queens Silenced: Series Canceled After 2 Seasons

Ryan Murphy's schedule just opened up again with FOX confirming during a conference call this morning that Scream Queens has indeed been canceled.

This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who were on the call with Fox co-chairman/ CEO Gary Newman this morning:

"Scream Queens was an anthological series. It feels as if it was a complete story. We have no plans at this point to go back there and tell more stories so we won't be seeing Scream Queens this season."

The announcement comes as a sad confirmation of series star and (2 episodes) director scream queen and comedy legend Jamie Lee Curtis tweeted this:

Scream Queens received lukewarm reviews from critics but garnered a passionate fan following that didn't fully translate to ratings sadly.  Series stars Emma Roberts (American Horror Story),  Lea Michele (Glee), and Billie Lourd (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) all have projects in the pipeline, so they won't be off screen for long.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool. 

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

 Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

 Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
