Scream Queens is going dark for season two—like way, way darker.

Fox's serial killer horror comedy is moving from college to a hospital in its second season, and the stars are already preparing themselves to move from the pastel wonderland of the KKT sorority house to a hospital.

"I think it'll be dark. I think it's going to be very dark," star Jamie Lee Curtis tells E! News at Fox's Upfront party in New York City after the network announced its 2016-17 programming schedule. "It's in a hospital, [there's] a lot of darkness in hospitals—dark hallways, scary rooms, sharp objects, a lot of blood, disinfectants."

Lea Michele, whose character, Hester—spoiler alert!—turned out to be one of the Red Devil killers, is excited for the dark turn. "I don't know how I can get any darker than I did in season one but hey, whatever Ryan Murphy wants me to do I am totally down with," she says.

While the cast has yet to read any scripts for season two, they're excited about the new direction the show is taking this year.

"We're adding some incredible new cast members that you'll find out about soon. It's going to be fun, it's going to be wild," star Emma Robertspromises. "We haven't even read a script yet though, so we actually don't know what's going to happen."

Well, they might not know the big picture, but some of the stars do know what's happening with their own characters. Michele tells us that she already knows Hester's arc. "I'm really excited about it," she says. "I get to be even crazier this year than I was last year, if you can believe it!"

Press play on the video above for more scoop about season two. Scream Queens returns to Fox this fall in its Tuesdays at 9 p.m. time-slot.
