Looks like Taylor Lautner will once again get the chance to put those Twilight skills of simultaneously spooking and seducing teens to good use. Variety has announced that the dreamy wolf has been cast in Fox's Season 2 of Scream Queens. He'll be playing a doctor at the show's new hospital location. Apparently the dishy medic suffers from "a strange medical condition and becomes a suspect when a series of tragic events plagues the institution."
All of this lines up well with last season's premise — which took place on a college campus — that pretty much anyone is a suspect, especially with all the weird happenings and deaths that occur. While the campus fit the darkly satirical tone of the show, with its stuck-up sorority sisters fending off a murderer, the hospital setting could add an extra layer of genuine scares. It's described as a place where "the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation."
Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Emma Roberts and Abigail Breslin are all set to return for Season 2, joined by John Stamos as a doctor in addition to Lautner.
Lautner's recent comedic experience in the UK comedy series Cuckoo will likely come in handy for the show's dark humor. Last season Nick Jonas seemed to be the hottie with a secret, so perhaps we can expect similar things for Lautner's character. Fortunately, we don't have long to wait to find out. But before you do, below is the Season 1 trailer — there's still time to catch up!
Scream Queens Season 2 premieres Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
