Scream Queens: Canceled After Two Seasons!

at .

Scream Queens will not be returning for another season of laughs and horror at Fox. 

The network confirmed the news to reporters as its 2017 schedule became official, with the series missing the cut for a spot on the fall schedule. 

Asking Questions - Scream Queens

“We won’t be seeing Scream Queens this season,” Fox Television Group CEO Gary Newman told reporters Monday.

“Scream Queens was an anthological series. Ryan [Murphy] told the story of the group of characters he created over the course of the two seasons. It feels as if it was a complete story. We have no plans at this point to go back there and tell more stories.”

If you watched the series, then you are probably wondering what part of it was a "complete story" when you consider the series ended on a cliffhanger with Chanel Oberlin being confronted by the Red Devil. 

The Final Plan - Scream Queens

Did Chanel die? Was she dreaming? We need answers. 

Maybe it will return in some form in the future, but for now, the series is over. Fox was coy about the future of the series a few months back while stressing that the live ratings did not tell the full story. 

An Influx of Patients - Scream Queens

The ratings have never been high for the series, with Season 2 averaging just 1.4 million viewers and a 0.6 rating among the all-important adults 18-49 demo.

Creatively, the series was on fire, but the struggle in the ratings likely sent the series into the TV show afterlife. 

With the fate of the series up in the air, Billy Lourd was signed up to appear on American Horror Story Season 7, while Emma Roberts is busy with movies.
