Watch: Emma Roberts Returning for "Scream Queens" Season 2

The b--ch is coming back.

Emma Roberts is officially returning for season two of Scream Queens, idiot hookers! Roberts herself exclusively confirmed to E! News that she will be reprising the fan-favorite (and dare we say iconic?!) role of Chanel Oberlin, season one's HBIC, at the Ralph Lauren Polo presentation at New York Fashion Week on Friday.

"Yeah, Chanel is back!" Roberts told us. "I'm so excited for season two of Scream Queens because I can only imagine what the writers have in store for Chanel." 


Season two will move off of the college campus and to a hospital, with four cast members reportedly set to return from season one. (Well, make that three now that Roberts has confirmed she's returning.)

After the show was officially picked up for a second season, a source told E! News that Scream Queens would be introducing four new male cast members, who will all play doctors, when it returns. These actors will be in their late 20s, early 30s, and the casting search is currently underway. 

"I mean I hope there's four hot doctors because I feel like if there is anything season two needs it's four hot doctors," Roberts said of the new additions. 

Known for his casting prowess, Ryan Murphy will surely snag some big names for the roles, but Roberts is hoping some of season one's male cast members might return (Glen Powell, Oliver Hudson and Diego Boneta all starred, with Nick Jonas guest-starring). 

"I hope they bring a couple people back from the first season cause I love all those boys so much," Roberts said when we asked who'd she'd like to see join the cast in the four roles. "You are putting me on the spot, too much pressure, but I know that if Ryan Murphy does one thing well it's casting amazing, talented and really hot people. He always casts the cutest boys!"

Confirmed: That he does!

While we're heard Jamie Lee Curtis is expected to return and Lea Michele told us she's talked to Murphy about coming back, no official casting news has been announced by Fox.

"It really hasn't been decided who's coming back and how many of them will be playing their old characters. Ryan and Brad and Ian are actually working right now on that," Fox boss Gary Newman told reporters at the 2016 Winter TCA Press Tour. "We'll actually be sitting together quite soon and getting their take on it. Our instinct is that at least a few of those characters will be back as the same actors playing the same roles, but it it will be anthological in that there will be a time jump and they'll be in a different setting."
