A New ‘Scream Queens’ Trailer Gives A Deeper Look Into The Mystery [Video]

Warning: This article may contain spoilers for Scream Queens.

Scream Queens may be one of the most anticipated new shows and a big part of the fascination surrounding Ryan Murphy’s newest project comes from the fact that so little has been revealed. Until now. The new promo for Scream Queens is a combination of a trailer and a behind-the-scenes expose that entices audiences to mark their calendars for the Scream Queens debut without giving away too much to ruin the experience. So, what can we expect from Scream Queens?

“It’s a cross between Heathers and Friday the 13th,” suggests Mr. Murphy in the teaser.


“These girls are kick-a**,” Murphy says of the sorority sisters. “They’re not waiting for a boy to come in and rescue them. They’re the ones doing the rescuing.”

Speaking of those sorority sisters, fans of both American Horror Story and Glee will find familiar faces among the pledges of Ryan Murphy’s sorority. While it is common knowledge by now that Emma Roberts, Keke Palmer, and Lea Michele will be wearing pink sweaters and chomping on bubblegum, Abigail Breslin, Skyler Samuels, and newbie Billie Lourd can also be counted among Ryan’s Scream Queens.


Don’t count the guys out, just because the focus of Scream Queens is on a sorority. After all, sorority sisters usually date fraternity brothers and Nick Jonas is among the frat boys ready to defend (or is he the murderer?) his favorite sorority sisters. Nick plays Boone on Scream Queens and, judging by first appearances, he is a frat brother through and through, but Jonas warns that all is not as it seems on Scream Queens.

“I was drawn to him, because the idea about his character, at face value is one thing, but you find out later that there’s something else going on. It’s going to keep people on their toes. I can’t tell you much, but it’s full of surprises.”

Surprisingly, Mr. Jonas revealed that the horror aspect of Scream Queens was not the overriding factor in enticing him to take on the role of Boone.

“Scary movies are actually not my favorite thing in the world. I think it was more about the comedy of this show. It’s just funny and intriguing. The other show I do is very serious. Though we didn’t get to read the script before we signed on, which is kind of rare. But with Ryan you just have to trust that it’s going to be great.”

It seems that Nick is much more talkative than his female Scream Queens co-stars, but could he be convinced to reveal any details about the first season of Scream Queens, like the identity of the killer? No, he turned out to be more tight-lipped. Jonas even shied away from inquiries into his own Scream Queens character’s fate.

“I can’t say. It kills me, because I know things that other people don’t, but…just expect to be surprised.”

Fans will just have to wait for the premiere of Scream Queens, which has been scheduled for September on Fox.
