Airdate: Scream Queens

Ryan Murphy's horror-comedy series with a killer in a sorority house, will be launched on the back of The Bachelorette.


New US horror-comedy series Scream Queens will premiere on TEN next month, ahead of its season playout on ELEVEN.

The anthology series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan (American Horror Story, Glee) debuts on TEN on Wednesday, September 23, at 9.00pm (following The Bachelorette launch), with episode two on ELEVEN at 10.00pm.

It premieres with a double episode in the US on the same day.

From September 30, it settles into 9:30pm Wednesdays on ELEVEN.

The cast includes Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Nasim Pedra, Oliver Hudson, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Diego Bonita, Glen Powell, Lucien Laviscount, Niecy Nash, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande.

At Wallace University, Kappa House is the most sought-after sorority for pledges. It is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its queen bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts).

When anti-Kappa Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell breaks loose. A string of murders follows, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time.

Part-black comedy and part-slasher flick, Scream Queens is a modern take on the classic whodunit, where every character has a motive for murder or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

  1. On paper Scream Queens off the back of the bachelorette sounds like a strong lineup particularly in the demos, no doubt a show like this has limited appeal and if a success would be limited in the same way Glee was.
