John Stamos Joins Scream Queens Season 2 as Series Regular

Fox euthanized Grandfathered but it’s hanging on to John Stamos.

The TV vet has been tapped to join Scream Queens‘ hospital-set second season as a series regular, TVLine has learned. He’ll play Dr. Brock Holt, a brilliant — but secretive — head surgeon employed at the hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation.

This will mark Stamos’ third collaboration with Scream Queens exec producer Ryan Murphy, following guest stints on Glee and The New Normal.

Stamos joins returning Scream Queens cast members Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash, all of whom will be reprising their Season 1 roles.

Last month, Fox cancelled Stamos’ low-rated comedy Grandfathered after one season.

Scream Queens‘ launches Season 2 on Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c.

    Fox is giving Stamos a second chance? That’s something. RIP Grandfathered

  2. Brock says:

    LOVED Grandfathered. Far far better than New Girl. That show needs to be put down. Great to see John on this show. Hope they know what they’re doing this season from beginning to end and stay consistent….

    oi Stamos is beyond lame… all the way back to General Hospital.

  4. rinaex says:

    Does this mean that the awful Grace character will not be returning? I don’t see her name listed.

  5. dan says:

    I can’t wait to see his scenes with Jamie Lee Curtis.

  6. Ray says:

    Should’ve stuck to the summer camp theme.

  7. Joe says:

    Is Billy Lourd not returning?

    • Matt C. says:

      She is. Pretty much all the surviving characters are except Grace. I think Ryan Murphy and co. realized what a boring character she was, especially compared to the rest of the ensemble.

    Kiss Season 3 goodbye…

  9. I liked the first season of Scream Queens, but them adding stupid John Stamos to it now, not so sure how I will feel about the next season! I wonder what its going to be about, anyway!
