A new genre-bending comedy-horror anthology series. The first installment in the new anthology series revolves around a college campus which is rocked by a series of murders and new settings and storylines will be featured in subsequent seasons of the anthology series.
Fox confirmed this morning that Scream Queens has been cancelled after two seasons. The anthology series from Ryan Murphy premiered in 2015 to a fair amount of buzz, but garnered only mixed reviews and modest ratings.
A mix of both comedy and horror, Scream Queens followed a group of sorority girls who were being terrorized by a mysterious masked killer. Its campy humor elicited a wide range of opinions from viewers, resonating with some while completely turning off others.
While its numbers performed well enough in Season 1 to warrant a renewal, a dip in its sophomore viewership put the show firmly in danger despite being bolstered by a significant on-demand audience and a strong social media presence.
