‘Scream Queens’ Is ‘Halloween’ Meets ‘Heathers,’ Ryan Murphy Says at Comic-Con.

At a panel for the new series, stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Billie Lourde were joined by co-creator Ryan Murphy, who teased the new series as “Halloween meets Heathers.” The mention of the former elicited big screams from the crowd for Halloween star Curtis, who was attending Comic-Con for the first time.In the 10-second teaser released by FX Networks on Monday, Gaga’s silver, long-nailed hand is shown ringing the bell at the check-in desk, giving the first clues into her character.

To the joy of the crowd, Curtis said she will pay tribute to her breakthrough role on Scream Queens. “In episode two, there is a wordless homage that I threw in that was me tipping my hat to all you Laurie Strode lovers,” she said. Just yesterday at Comic-Con in San Diego, “American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy revealed details about the new season and the superstar’s role, confirming that she will play one of the bad guys. “She said, ‘I want to be evil,’” Murphy recalled of his first meeting with Gaga. “I said, ‘You came to the right place.’” As seen in the video released today, Murphy also teased Gaga’s over-the-top “Hotel” appearance during Sunday’s panel, saying, “When you work with someone like her, you sign up for something that is larger than life, and I think that’s what you want. While on stage in a joint panel for Murphy’s upcoming Fox series Scream Queens, Murphy revealed characters from previous seasons will check into the Hotel. “Characters from previous seasons will come back and check into the hotel.” Murphy said regarding the interconnection between seasons and noted everything will make sense by the end of the series.

Meanwhile, we finally got some scoop on Lady Gaga’s character—she will be involved with fashion and she’s working with the costume designers for her character. Murphy is notoriously tight-lipped about AHS, but the creator managed to slip several teases into his discussion about Freak Show and his new Fox comedy, Scream Queens. Instead, he revealed that on the first episodes of the show, the actors were instructed to do one take where their character is the killer. “So every actor had to get into that mind-set,” he said. The designers have been coming out of the woodwork with looks for her.” Murphy also shared that Gaga reached out herself, expressing her interest to be part of “AHS” because she’s such a big fan. “The best call ever is ‘Please wait for Gaga,’” he joked.

Everyone present on the panel — which included AHS favorites Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, and newbie Matt Bomer — will be “bad boys and girls,” according to Murphy. The singer landed her role on AHS by request — she wrote and told Murphy that she was a huge fan, and that she wanted to play an evil character on the show. Other details about Gaga’s small-screen debut: Her character will be highly involved in fashion, and unfortunately, despite all the music on Freak Show, she won’t be singing. Much like the AHS producers on last year’s Comic-Con panel, on Sunday Murphy announced the names of the characters the AHS veterans are set to play. The Supreme herself, Jessica Lange, has confirmed multiple times that she’s not doing AHS anymore, but Murphy teased her possible return in a year or two.

Murphy said his panelists this year are all “bad boys and girls” in this season of AHS and it looks like we already know one big death is on the horizon: Sarah Paulson’s Hypodermic Sally. When it came time for audience question and answer time, Bates revealed a crush on a certain Magic costar of Bomer’s. “Hey Matt, who’s that Armenian guy who did the dances?” Bates asked.
