"Scream Queens" Canceled By FOX
The cancellation was expected for the Ryan Murphy horror comedy anthology series, which struggled to find an audience over its first two seasons, although it did perform well with its delays of viewing and was extremely buzzy on social media. Fox also liked that the show brought in a younger viewers.
Earlier this year, Fox executives told reporters that the future of “Scream Queens” was still up in the air, saying, “It’s very much still in consideration for a renewal,” in January. “The ratings don’t tell the whole story; because it’s such a young audience, you can’t really even see the full picture even in L+3.”
The series also starred Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Billie Lourd, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash.
The first season of “Scream Queens” was set in the college Greek system with the main characters as sorority girls. The second season, was set in a hospital and the medical setting was an effort to expand the bubblegum show’s audience to a larger audience, both male and female. Despite efforts to attract a wider pool of viewers with the Season 2 changes, including casting more men such as John Stamos and Taylor Lautner, the final episode of the season closed out with 1.38 million viewers overnight and a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
Also other cancelled shows that will be going off air will be Baby Daddy on Freeform, Sleepy Hollow on Fox, and Rosewood on Fox.
