It looks like the adults in power won’t be much help to the ladies of Kappa Kappa Tau in the upcoming FOX horror-comedy series Scream Queens.
The new promo gives viewers an idea of how the campus killer in the new series is being handled by the college’s superintendent and security guards and the short answer is: terribly.
Series creator Ryan Murphy recently described the show as “sort of like a twist on American Horror Story: every season is a new season, a new setting, a new establishment — the difference being you will know some of the characters who will live.”
After watching the below promo, we wouldn’t be surprised if a good chunk of the inept adults would be the first to go.
Creating a horror show for network TV has proven to be a little different for Murphy, who received some surprising pushback along the way. “Violence is cool for the most part,” he explained. “That’s very easy to get through in my job. It’s language, it’s slang, it’s trying to reflect how people really talk. It’s trying to write characters who are open about their sexuality, who talk about their sexuality, that gets the most attention and the most pushback.”
The star studded cast for the new FOX series includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Ariana Grande, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas and more, and from what we can tell, none of them are safe from meeting a bloody demise.
Scream Queens premieres on FOX with a special, two-hour series premiere event on Tuesday, Sept. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
