Gather around, idiot hookers, we have some major Scream Queens news!

While Emma Roberts confirmed she's definitely returning as Chanel Oberlin, TV's reigning queen of mean, for the Fox horror comedy's second season, the status of the rest of the cast has remained a mystery...until now.

Lea Michele, Billie Lourd, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Jamie Lee Curtis all announced they will officially be part of season two during Scream Queens' panel at PaleyFest 2016 on Saturday night. Also returning? Niecy Nash as fan-favorite Denise Hemphill and Glen Powell.

Fans, however, will have to wait a bit longer to find out the fate of Skyler Samuels and Oliver Hudson.


As for plot details in the upcoming season, fans learned the Chanels will study to become doctors. Munsch will also buy a hospital where Zayday will serve as an employee. 

Ryan Murphy is set to move the show off of a college campus and to a hospital in the new season, with a source telling E! News that the show will be introducing four new male cast members, who will also play doctors. Expect them to be in their late 20s, early 30s. And probably hot. Duh.

"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. "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!"
