Five years ago, fans were introduced to one of the most iconic characters of all time, Chanel Oberlin, when Scream Queens first premiered on September 22, 2015. After two seasons and 23 episodes, the FOX show came to its bittersweet end, but that hasn’t stopped fans (or the cast members) from wanting a reboot.
Scream Queens starred Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Lea Michele, Glen Powell, Abigail Breslin, Ariana Grande, Keke Palmer and Billie Lourd. It followed the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority at the fictional Wallace University after their house becomes the target of a mysterious murderer, the Red Devil. From its iconic lines — often served by one of the Chanels — to the seriously envy-worthy fashion, this show was unlike any other and over the years has gained a pretty major following.
Now, three of the stars have become moms to little boys — Emma, Lea and Billie — and according to Emma, the only way it can be described it as “pure witchcraft.”
“I don’t know how else to explain it, it was not planned,” she said during an October 2020 interview with SiriusXM. Although Emma didn’t spill any Scream Queens reboot tea, creator Ryan Murphy sparked reboot rumors about getting the Chanels back together when talking to Deadline in November 2019.
“I would have to say that the answer to that lies in the studio who made it,” he said when asked about bringing the show back. “Obviously I work for Netflix now, but if I could do anything to bring it back. Emma said she would do it, Lea Michele said she would do it, Jamie Lee Curtis, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd are all in. So it would depend if Fox wants to do it. I think we’d all do it. I think we’re waiting for them to call us. I know the show is very popular and had a real spike in popularity on Hulu.”
