Scream Queens Recap: All the Details from the Premiere

5 reasons the ‘Scream Queens’ series premiere had us shrieking with delight.

The much-hyped comedy-horror show starring Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin and Jamie Lee Curtis, has just had its premiere in the US, but it had not been picked up by a UK channel until now. By the end of the two-hour series premiere on Tuesday night, we found ourselves no shortage of moments, amazing one-liners, and deaths to process (R.I.P, lots of people).If you heard the news that at least one character will die on every episode of Fox’s new horror drama “Scream Queens”… you might only care about learning who dies. Now E4 has announced it will air the satirical slasher horror series, co-created by Ryan Murphy, the man behind Glee and American Horror Story, this autumn.

Recently awarded Emmy winner costume designer Lou Eyrich looked to brands like Chanel and Jeremy Scott for Mochino and of course, through the runway photos from former website for inspiration to style main stars Emma Roberts and Arianna Grande. Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts) is a terrible delight to watch and, as we learn, has a long list of rules that must be obeyed by those around her at all times. As has been endlessly discussed, Murphy shows typically follow the same pattern: They start out really strong and get you hooked with a mix of absurdity, brittle dialogue, insane characters and shocking cliffhangers. This new the comedy-thriller seems to have the potential to be what Gossip Girl was to teens back then and Sex and the City to cosmopolitan women in the aughts, at least fashion-wise. If you missed its debut ep, here’s a quick back track: Two decades after a mysterious murder case in Wallace University another one sets off another fright fest.

It began with Chanel No. 2 opening her door to the obvious masked murderer, trying to flirt with him and then engaging in a text conversation with him or her. See: “Glee,” “American Horror Story,” “Nip/Tuck.” So to save you the trouble, I watched the two-hour premiere of “Scream Queens” and will share the first characters to go. The series flashes back 20 years to when a Kappa pledge gave birth to a baby in a bathtub — and her sisters refused to help because it was during a really fun party and TLC’s “Waterfalls” was playing and that song was their jam. She tells Fashionista, “The Kappa girls are all in pastels and, in theory, very expensive clothes. [They are] perfectly coiffed; nails done, shoes matching the outfits and makeup done pristinely.” Fur coats and feather boa dresses aside, the costume designer admits, “That whole polished look is completely unrealistic on a college campus, and high heels at all times.” If you looked at the cast list and saw pop star Ariana Grande’s name and thought “there’s no way Ariana Grande would really be a character on a primetime TV show”… you are correct!

And finally, another character that you think is dead is actually a pretty compelling twist, because it’s Nick Jonas — another actor/singer you wouldn’t think would stick around a TV show.
