Fox has given low rated and critically panned horror comedy Scream Queens a second season. The Ryan Murphy produced anthology series will take place in a hospital next season. The announcement was made at Fox's TCA meeting by chairmen and CEOs of FOX Television Group Dana Walden and Gary Newman who defended the arguably unexpected renewal by boasting about the show's ability to attract young audiences, which all the networks are vying for and is especially desired by Fox and the relatively large VOD audience. 44% of Scream Queen's audience watched the show on-demand, 30% watched live, 26% watched via DVR.
Fox has yet to announce which cast member swill return for the second season however, Jamie Lee Curtis is rumoured to be expected to anchor the second season. Most of the cast members have multi-year deals and are likely to return.
