FOX Renews Scream Queens For A Second Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

And like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhies and Michael Myers, it appears nothing can kill Scream Queens even with its mediocre ratings. The FOX horror series averaged just 2.8 million weekly viewers and a 1.1 demo, but the network decided to give it a second season.

I’m sure the renewal has more to do with wanting to stay on Ryan Murphy’s good graces than anything else. Though the network claims only 30 percent of its audience watched live. Across multiple platforms, the show drew a total audience of 7.2 million viewers, a 167 percent increase from its same-day audience, according to them.

The trial wasn’t the whole story. This is, touts FX. After countless teasers, the network just unveiled the first trailer for their highly-anticipated new anthology series, American Crime Story. And it’s an intense one.

The first season focuses on the trail of the century, The People vs OJ Simpson. The minute-long trailer highlights the drama inside and outside the courtroom and all the maneuvering on both sides. The infamous trial is told from the perspective of the lawyers.

The star-studded cast is on full display in the clip. John Travolta (Robert Shapiro), Cuba Gooding Jr. (OJ Simpson), Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark), David Schwimmer (Robert Kardashian), Courtney B. Vance (Johnnie Cochran), Connie Britton (Faye Resnick), Selma Blair (Kris Jenner), Malcolm-Jamal Warner (A.C. Cowlings), Billy Magnussen (Kato Kaelin), Steven Pasquale (Mark Fuhrman), Cheryl Ladd (Mrs. Shapiro) and Jordana Brewster (Denise Brown) are just a few of those appearing in the 10-episode miniseries.

American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson premieres Tuesday, Feb. 2, on FX. Check out the trailer below.

It’s the infamous Bronco chase that captivated viewers twenty-one years ago. Who could forget that indelible image of OJ Simpson driving down a Los Angeles freeway as dozens of police cars followed him from a distance? It truly was riveting.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson promises to bring viewers inside that white vehicle during the tense chase as Simpson held a gun to his head. “You saw the Bronco,” the brief clip reads. “But you weren’t in the Bronco.”

The ten-episode miniseries featuring an all-star cast including Cuba Gooding Jr, John Travolta, Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Selma Blair and Connie Britton premieres February 2016 on FX. Check out the Bronco teaser below along with another new clip featuring OJ writing his suicide letter. I can’t wait for the Ryan Murphy series to premiere.

It appears that Ryan Murphy is taking the same approach to promote American Crime Story as he has in the past for his other FX anthology series by releasing a bunch of teasers. The prior one featured the voices of the major players involved in the infamous OJ Simpson trial. This new one puts the spotlight on the only witness of the murder.

During the infamous double murder trial of the century, it was noted that Nicole Brown Simpson’s dog lead her neighbor to the body. Bloody paw prints from the dog were also found on the scene, leading to the assumption that the canine witnessed the murder.

The eerie new teaser shows a dog on Bundy Drive outside Brown’s Brentwood condo. Watch the teaser below.

Show Synopsis

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the first installment of the new limited series from prolific producer Ryan Murphy, will debut on FX in early 2016 with an all-star cast portraying the key figures in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial. The cast includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti.

Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

Most series today simply put up a title card as their opening credits and call it day. Lazy bitches 😉 Not to sound like a senior citizen, but I miss the days when elaborate opening sequences were the norm.

Ryan Murphy just shared the super-sized main title sequence for Scream Queens. I highly doubt the full version will air on the network, but I appreciate the effort. Not surprisingly, Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas aren’t included in the clip given that they’re only billed as guest stars.

Scream Queens debuts on FOX on September 22. Check out the bloody intro below where Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and company show off their screaming skills.

Jessica Lange Teams Up With Ryan Murphy Again

For those hoping this means Jessica Lange is taking part in American Horror Story: Hotel, sadly you’ll be disappointed. The 66-year-old actress still hasn’t caved in. I still think though, she’ll make a surprise cameo during the FX anthology’s fifth season. Fingers crossed.

Lange is indeed reuniting with Ryan Murphy, but for something completely different. Find out below.

I believe I found my new greeting. Already, I greeted my friends with ‘hooker’ and now thanks to Ryan Murphy, I can call them idiots as well 😉

The first full official trailer for Scream Queens has finally arrived and it doesn’t disappoint. Regina George and the Plastics have nothing on Emma Robert’s uber bitchy character and her Heathers-like minions, The Chanels. Her sassy one-liners will make this horror-comedy hybrid must-watch television.

As if Hell Week wasn’t torture enough with all the hazing, the sorority is rocked when a devil-wearing killer commits a series of murders on campus. One poor pledge sadly meets her fate courtesy of a rogue lawnmower. LOL. Scream Queens will definitely be the watercooler show of the new season.

Roberts is joined by Jaime Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Oliver Hudson, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Skyler Samuels, Billie Lourd, Diego Boneta, Lucien Laviscount, Glen Powell and guest stars Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas. Speaking of the latter two, I predict they meet their maker early, given that they’re not featured heavily in the trailer. Check it out below.

When FOX presented at this year’s upfronts, Scream Queens was one show that didn’t have a trailer. A little odd, but I just assumed there wasn’t enough footage since they only recently began filming. Imagine my surprise and delight when the network dropped a new promo showing actual footage.

Most of the previous promos featured Emma Roberts in highly-stylized scenarios. This one titled “Pledges” shows the other cast members and a hint at the storyline. Roberts plays, not surprisingly, a ruthless sorority bitch while Michele ditches her Rachel Berry persona and shows up in an uncomfortable looking neck brace.

Check out the clip below which features several screaming queens. Not the college coed types but rather of the flaming variety 😉 Scream Queens will air on Tuesdays this Fall.
