In less than three weeks we will finally have our chance to watch Scream Queens, and as part of promotional efforts running up to the show’s premiere, Ryan Murphy has released the opening credits for his new show. The credits feature most of the show’s cast giving their best … scream, as they’re attacked in various ways by the show’s masked Red Devil killer. Murphy as stated this is a “super-sized” main title sequence on his Youtube channel, so chances are, the credits will be shortened before each episode starts. Notably absent from the ensemble cast are both Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas — neither are feature in the clip nor mentioned in the credits. Scream Queens kicks off on September 22nd on Fox.
Here’s the official synopsis for Scream Queens:
The girls of Kappa House are dying for new pledges. Scream Queens is a new killer comedy-horror series from Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning executive producers of Glee and American Horror Story. Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, CHANEL OBERLIN (Emma Roberts, American Horror Story: Freak Show, Scream 4). But when anti-Kappa DEAN MUNSCH (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween, A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, Scream Queens is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder…or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.
