"Scream Queens" has wrapped up its second season in December, but fans will not get any confirmations just yet about its possible renewal. The modest ratings that the season 2 finale of the comedy-horror flick received are said to be a major reason why the future of "Scream Queens" is still blurry.
"Scream Queens" season 2 ended with a mere 1.3 million viewers. This performance of the show has reportedly prevented the network from awarding it with a new season. However, the FOX executives David Madden and Gary Newman previously said during the Television Critics Association press tour that the season 3 of "Scream Queens" is still in consideration.
The network executives were also defensive of the show's performance, claiming that the records do not define the series' story. They expressed their happiness about the ratings, but they also wish it could have gotten a higher number. Madden and Newman then clarified that their decision will be announced later this year, as they are yet to define the need for renewal as the month of May approaches.
The comedy-horror flick has ended with arguably definite resolutions but also left some cliffhangers to give the show an opportunity for a possible new season. With the Green Meanie story arc getting its conclusion, the fans were treated to a look at the future where Dean Munsch pursues a career in sex therapy. Chanel and Zayday also got a better ending with the duo becoming legitimate doctors at the C.U.R.E. Institute. Chanel became an executive producer of her own hit medical talker. However, the season ended with the Red Devil lurking in the back seat of Chanel's car.
Fans then of "Scream Queens" believe that a new season is needed for them to find out why the story ended with Chanel becoming a target of a new killer. The followers of the show are also excited to find out where the next season will take place if FOX decides to pick it up for a new installment.
