As Scream Queens Season 2 welcomes Taylor Lautner, the Twilight alumnus is thankful that he is clad in clothes this time. It can be remembered that Lautner’s werewolf character in Stephenie Meyer’s franchise was always shirtless.
Nonetheless, he revealed to People that despite the lack of shirtless scenes, Scream Queens Season 2 has its own “sexy scenes for everyone.”
“I’ve had so much shirtless in my life that I need a little break. But there is a fair amount of sexy scenes for everyone. I haven’t been shirtless yet but I’ve been stripped down a little bit.”
Lautner’s Scream Queens co-star John Stamos argued that the first episode required both of them to be shirtless in different scenes, but the Tracers actor reportedly found a way out of it. Lautner told the publication that the cast members are now used to seeing a shirtless Stamos on set. “We’ve only been filming for two and a half weeks, and John has been shirtless like five times,” he said.
Stamos indeed treated fans to a sneak peek via Instagram. He likewise added during the interview that someone from the production team got in touch with his lawyer asking if it was okay to show his behind in two separate episodes.
“On Friday night I get a letter from my lawyer saying, ‘Hey, check this out,’ and it was from legal saying, ‘We’d like to show John Stamos’ butt in episode 203 and 202. Is that alright?’ I was like alright, well, here we go. I’m 53 next week, I might as well get it out there now.”
Both Stamos and Lautner will play the role of doctors in Scream Queens Season 2. Stamos will give life to the character of Dr. Brock Holt, the world’s first successful recipient of a hand transplant. Lautner will play Dr. Cassidy Cascade who forms a special bond with Chanel #3 (Billie Lourd).
For those who are wondering what to expect from the brand new season of the FOX anthology, Chanel (Emma Roberts), Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin), and Chanel #3 are now relocated to a mental asylum. They have been sentenced to stay there for life after being wrongly accused of the killings in Scream Queens Season 1.
While the first season revealed that the bathtub babies Hester (Lea Michele) and Boone (Nick Jonas) are the real Red Devils, Hester remains unscathed. Only Dean Cathy Munsch knows the truth about her.
It is believed that Hester won’t commit another homicidal rampage in Scream Queens Season 2. She previously told the Hollywood Reporter that there might be a new killer and that she might be a victim this time.
“I know that Ryan has mentioned that there will be a new killer next year — and it’ll be really funny if everyone thinks it’s Hester, and she’s like, ‘Um, no, actually it’s not me this time.’ And then I think she could be in the position of someone coming after her, which would be really fun to play.”
Everyone loves the glamorous Kappa Kappa Tau sorority house, but Scream Queens Season 2 will now have a different setting. The new season is now set in a bizarre hospital courtesy of its new owner, Dean Munsch, who has a fascination for accepting peculiar medical cases. Zayday (Keke Palmer) is now a medical school graduate helping Dean Munsch in the hospital.
Dean Munsch, Zayday, Hester, and the Chanels are not the only ones returning. Denise (Niecy Nash) and Chad (Glen Powell) will reprise their roles too. However, fans won’t see Grace this season because Skylar Samuels decided to finish her studies. She told Yahoo that she’s not closing her doors and she’s open to the possibility of working with Ryan Murphy again.
Scream Queens Season 2 will not let go of its horror movie references. Last season paid tribute to Psycho. Fans must stay tuned to see which horror movies are included in the new season.
Scream Queens Season 2 returns on Sept. 20 on FOX.
