FOX adds John Stamos to Scream Queens season 2

John Stamos (“Grandfathered,” “Fuller House”) has been cast in a series regular role in the upcoming second season of SCREAM QUEENS. If you’re new to the series, Scream Queens is a comedy-horror series that debuted to terrific ratings last year, coming from award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.

Premiering Tuesday, Sept. 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), on FOX, Season Two of SCREAM QUEENS graduates from the college campus and into an all-new location, as a terrifyingly funny mystery will begin once again.

The new season is set in a hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation, Stamos will play DR. BROCK HOLT, the hospital’s brilliant, but secretive, head surgeon. Stamos previously collaborated with Murphy in guest-starring roles on the comedies “Glee” and “The New Normal.”

As previously announced, Golden Globe Award nominee Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash are set to reprise their Season One characters. FOX has stated that additional castings will be announced over the next few months.

Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer John Stamos continues to captivate audiences with an array of multi-faceted performances across television, film and theater. With a career spanning 30 years, Stamos has become one of the most revered television stars of his generation. In 2016, Stamos won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actor in a New TV Series, for his role on FOX’s “Grandfathered,” and was awarded TV Land’s Timeless Icon Award, presented to him by longtime friend and mentor Garry Marshall.

Earlier this year, “Fuller House,” a multi-camera comedy spin-off of iconic comedy “Full House,” premiered, with Stamos serving as a producer and guest star. The series was recently renewed for a second season. Stamos’ additional television credits include “General Hospital,” “Necessary Roughness,” “Galavant,” “Entourage,” “Two and A Half Men” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” as well as the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning drama “ER.” As a producer, Stamos is in development with Twentieth Century Fox and Academy Award-winning producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, on a musical feature set to the songs of the Beach Boys.

SCREAM QUEENS was this past season’s No. 1 new comedy among Adults 18-34 and the No. 1 new series in social media. The series is created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, who also serve as writers and directors on the series. SCREAM QUEENS is executive-produced by Murphy, Falchuk, Brennan and Alexis Martin Woodall (“American Horror Story: Hotel”).
