Everyone scream for the casting of John Stamos for season 2 of Scream Queens!
John Stamos is staying in the Fox family.
Following the cancellation of his short-lived Fox comedy “Grandfathered,” the network has cast the “Full House” favorite as a series regular in the second season of “Scream Queens,” Variety has learned.
Stamos is a new addition to the A-list ensemble cast. Returning members from the original season are Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Niecy Nash and Glen Powell, who all will reprise their original characters.
“Scream Queens” season 2 — which returns on Tuesday, Sept. 20 — will be set in a hospital, after season 1 of the Ryan Murphy horror-anthology series was set in a sorority house. Putting the same characters in a new setting for the fresh episodes, the hospital will be run by Dean Cathy Munsch (Curtis), who has moved on after abolishing the college Greek system and traveled the world in search of a new mission.
Stamos will play Dr. Brock Holt, the hospital’s brilliant, but secretive, head surgeon. More new cast members will be announced at a later date.
