The Chanels have fallen from grace — but the screaming’s not over.

The Scream Queens cast and writer Ian Brennan teased season 2 of the comedy-horror, set to take place in a hospital three years after the events of the first season at the Kappa sorority house. According to Brenner, the new story will follow Dean Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) to a hospital she purchases with the money she makes from her book — and the murders begin almost instantly. “It’s unclear what her reasoning is [for buying the hospital],” Brennan said. “There’s a bit of a grey area there.”

Not in a grey area: who fans will meet in season 2. New cast member John Stamos will play the head of surgery (“[Munsch] saw my layout in Playgirl, the 10 Hottest Doctors, so that’s how I got it,” he joked) while fellow new addition Taylor Lautner will play a doctor who winds up a prime suspect — well, one of many prime suspects. Colton Haynes is also checking in for the new season. He will play a patient, along with Saturday Night Live star Cecily Strong, whose casting was announced during the panel, which was moderated by EW’s Tim Stack. Zayday (Keke Palmer) is now a med student who joins Munsch out of gratitude for Munsch’s help in season 1. “It’d be much easier to just keep the premise we had, but we knew we wanted to switch it up,” Brennan explained. “It’s within the same world but within an entirely different setting. It’s tricky.”

Lea Michele is now a single lady.

The Scream Queens actress and Robert Buckley have split, sources confirm to E! News. The romance was somewhat short-lived (Lea and the iZombie star were first reported as a couple in May), but a source tells E! News the former couple “are still friends” post-split.

“[They] just found they were better off as friends and wanted to support each other’s careers,” a source told Us Weekly, who was first to report of Lea and Robert’s breakup. The actors’ busy schedules were also said to have played a role in the split.

It’s a good thing, though, that Lea, 29, and Robert, 35, are still on good terms, because their paths will almost certainly cross again. The exes are co-stars on Dimension 404, an upcoming science-fiction drama set to air on Hulu.

Prior to dating Robert, Lea was in a nearly 2-year relationship with Matthew Paetz. Their surprising split, which occurred several months before the Glee alum began seeing Robert, was very much unexpected.

“She’s doing well and is focusing on friends and work,” a source told E! News at the time. “This has been very sudden and hard, but if anyone can pick herself up it’s Lea. She has a great network of friends.”

In addition to her work in TV, Lea “is working on new music and has an album coming out that she is really trying hard to concentrate all her time on,” a source told E! News.

We wish her all the best.
