A little over a month ago, following the cancelation of Grandfathered on FOX, John Stamos pretty much implied network TV was dead (in a tweet that has since been deleted). But on Thursday, the network announced that the actor will join the cast of Scream Queens in its second season as a regular, Variety reports.
Back in January, FOX announced season two of executive producer Ryan Murphy’s horror-comedy series will not take place in the Kappa Kappa Tau sorority house like it did in season one, but instead it will be set in a hospital. Jamie Lee Curtis is returning as Dean Cathy Munsch, who will run the hospital after leaving Greek life to explore the world. Stamos will play “the hospital’s brilliant, but secretive, head surgeon,” Dr. Brock Holt, according to FOX. It’s hard not to be a fan of a charming and handsome doctor.
This isn’t Stamos and Murphy’s first time working together. The actor had guest starring roles on Murphy’s Glee and The New Normal in the past. Stamos will join more stars from the first season who are reprising their roles, like Emma Roberts, Keke Palmer, Lea Michele, and Niecy Nash. No word yet on if any more new cast members will join the A-list ensemble, but they are sure to be announced as time goes on.
The second season of Scream Queens will premiere Tuesday, September 20.
