‘Scream Queens’ Shuttered: ‘No Plans to Tell More Stories There,’ Fox CEO Says

Upfronts 2017: More “24: Legacy” could still happen down the road, however, and possibly even another “Prison Break” run

Don’t hold your breath for more “Scream Queens,” Ryan Murphy fans.

Fox has “no plans to tell more stories there,” network co-chairman and CEO Gary Newman said on a Monday morning conference call covering the broadcaster’s 2017-18 schedule.

The low-rated anthology series was always unlikely-at-best to see Season 3 — now, like so many of its characters, the slasher dramedy is dead. Of course, with a talent like Murphy behind the project, should the “Glee” creator wake up one day and decide to do more, Fox’s door will probably magically open once more.

Newman did say that fellow bubble series “24: Legacy” could eventually return to his schedule — but it would be based on star Corey Hawkins’ busy Broadway schedule (he just picked up a Tony nomination for a revival of “Six Degrees of Separation” opposite Allison Janney).

There could also be more “Prison Break” down the line, though that current-season comeback was initially announced as a limited series anyway.

Finally, Newman kept the door open for a “Linda From HR” pilot pickup: Fox executives will be discussing the project’s potential future when they return to Los Angeles from today’s upfront presentation.
