Bad news Scream Queens fans – the show will not get a third season.
The Ryan Murphy series has been cancelled, having wrapped up its second and now final run in December 2016.
“We won’t be seeing Scream Queens this season,” Fox Television Group CEO Gary Newman confirmed to reporters (via TVLine).
“Scream Queens was an anthological series. Ryan told the story of the group of characters he created over the course of the two seasons. It feels as if it was a complete story. We have no plans at this point to go back there and tell more stories.”
A number of principal cast members, notably Billie Lourd and Lea Michele, had signed on to other projects recently, the former joining American Horror Story.
That added to the earlier speculation that the show was headed for the axe, with Fox executives revealing earlier this year that the show’s future was up in the air.
It also struggled to find an audience, with the series’ ratings dropping quite low by the end of its run, and clocking in at 1.37 million by the finale.
Scream Queens‘ first season was set in a girls’ sorority, where a serial killer goes on a rampage, while the second moved the action to a hospital.
The show also starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash.
