As “Scream Queens” closed its first season by revealing who the killers were, fans of the show are already floating some theories on who the show should tap for its second season.
While attending a Q&A at Fan Fright Fest in New York City, show creator Ryan Murphy gave a small but intriguing clue as to who may be featured to topbill the next season.
“Singer. Big pop star. I can’t give it away, they’d kill me. A male,” he said. He also shared that the survivors of the first season will be joined by around 10 new characters who will face a different type of horror in a whole new setting.
Fans have earlier speculated that Murphy may be referring to One Direction’s Harry Styles as the British pop star earlier expressed his intention to try the Hollywood scene. But now, there are more names that have been added to the fray.
A report by Hollywood Life listed down possible candidates for the next season’s main star.
One of those listed by the site is Justin Bieber, who is now making waves in the Billboard top hits with songs from his latest album “Purpose.” The site pointed out that the pop star has had acting practice with his guest stint in “CSI.”
Another artist on the roster is Harry Style’s One Direction bandmate Niall Horan, who fans have praised for his talent in doing impressions. Besides, 1D has already announced that they will be having an extended hiatus, so this might be the perfect chance for the singer to try out acting.
Former 1D member Zayn Malik is also among the possible candidates on the site’s list. Since he is already embarking on a solo career, he could be tapped to join the cast.
Adam Levine, who guested in “American Horror Story” season 2, another one of Ryan Murphy’s shows, may be persuaded to join “Scream Queens” if his commitments with “The Voice” and his music don’t get in the way.
Other artists on the list of possibilities are Justin Timberlake, Adam Lambert, and Joe Jonas who all have experiences acting in television, movies, and theater.
