Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande and Lea Michele run for their lives in the trailer for Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy’s new series Scream Queens.
The Fox horror anthology series takes place on the campus of the fictional Wallace University, where the infamous Red Devil killer strikes after years off the grid. The show, which follows a sorority being stalked (and picked off) by the requisite masked serial killer, promises campy dramatic deaths each episode as well as new murderous motives explained for the remaining characters — a sassy slasher whodunnit playing out weekly, basically.
The fresh murders in Scream Queens coincide with the university’s dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) threatening to shut down the Kappa sorority. Opposing Dean Munsch is the ruthless Kappa president Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) and her gaggle of underlings (Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Ariana Grande and Abigail Breslin).
While the trailer already displays multiple deaths, it doesn’t touch on potential death scenes for a whole host of big names attached to the show: Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Diego Boneta, Nasim Pedrad, Skyler Samuels.
Scream Queens will also feature Nick Jonas, Lucien Laviscount, Oliver Hudson and Nasim Pedrad in its limited series run.
Fox premieres the horror series in September 2015.
