‘Scream Queens’ freaks out its audiences

Put down your pens, close your textbooks and find a working TV.

On Sept. 22, 2015, at 9 p.m., “Scream Queens” premiered on Fox.

The comedy and horror fusion has a cast that includes Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Lea Michele, Glen Powell, Abigail Breslin and Jamie Lee Curtis.

The creators of hit primetime shows “Glee” and “American Horror Story” have delivered yet another series that’s entertainment gold.

The show’s list of guest stars thus far is impressive, including Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas and Chad Michael Murray, and the show has only aired three episodes.

“Scream Queens” follows the frighteningly fierce sorority, Kappa Kappa Tau, at Wallace University, during the college’s “new member recruitment” week.

Heading this wicked sisterhood is ruthless queen bee Chanel Oberlin, portrayed by Roberts, who will stop at nothing to maintain the sorority’s ‘hot’ reputation.

Not even murder will deter Kappa Kappa Tau’s current pledge class from proving they have what it takes to be a sister, which is a definite possibility, as a serial killer in a red devil costume is stalking the sisterhood.

With its star-studded cast and talented writers, “Scream Queens” will leave you wanting more.

“Halloween” actress and original ‘scream queen’ Jamie Lee Curtis co-stars as the no-nonsense, secretive Dean Munsch, headmistress of the University and KKT’s greatest foe — aside from the murderer, of course.

Curtis is no novice when it comes to giving the audience a reason to scream.

Whether she’s blackmailing, sabotaging or simply walking down the street, Curtis does it with style.

Curtis is not the only star screamer amongst these queens; Roberts, “American Horror Story” alumn, brings a hilarious ferocity as KKT’s president.

With her conniving schemes, man candy Chad Radwell, portrayed by Glen Powell, and haute couture (that looks like she skinned the cast of Sesame Street), Roberts takes over the screen with a captivating performance.

Whether you love or hate her, you’ll find yourself unable to take your eyes away from this cruel “it” girl.

If watching Curtis and Roberts evade a killer while surviving rush week isn’t enough, the show’s comedic moments will win you over, without a doubt. The script is dripping with sarcastic one-liners that fans will certainly be quoting in their Facebook profiles long into the scary season.

Happy viewing!
