For its second season, Queens will be set in a hospital owned by Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis). The Chanels—Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, and Billie Lourd—are now hospital employees as well as Hester (Lea Michele) and Zayday (Keke Palmer).
Lautner will play Dr. Cassidy Cascade, a doc who becomes involved with Lourd’s Chanel #3. The character suffers from a bizarre medical condition and finds himself a suspect following a wave of tragedies at the hospital.
It was announced last week that John Stamos (Grandfathered) would be joining season 2 as well as surgeon Dr. Brock Holt.
Scream Queens, created by Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, premieres Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
