Saturday Night Live’s Cecily Strong’s vocal chords will likely be put to good use in the upcoming season of Scream Queens. Strong will guest star in Ryan Murphy’s campy horror-comedy, co-creator Ian Brennan announced during the show’s Comic-Con panel Friday. The second season takes place in a hospital purchased by Jamie Lee Curtis’ Cathy Munsch, and Strong will play one of the patients. Sure, the fact that a university dean is now the proud owner of a healthcare facility makes little sense. But what can we say? It’s a Ryan Murphy show.
Murphy has dipped into the SNL talent pool previously. The first season employed Nasim Pedrad, as villain/victim Gigi Caldwell. Here’s hoping Strong makes it out alive, though chances are it will be funnier if she doesn’t. Other actors joining the show include Taylor Lautner as a doctor—yes, plausibility is not really a concern here—and John Stamos as a surgeon who has had a hand transplant. Arrow’s Colton Haynes will also appear in season two.
