Taylor Lauter has signed on for a series regular role on the second season of Fox’s horror-comedy anthology series Scream Queens, TVWise has learned.
Scream Queens is an anthology series that centers on new story-lines each season. The show’s first season followed a series of murders on a college campus, while season two will be set in a hospital, where some of the most fascinating and bizarre medical cases are under observation.
Lautner will play Dr Cassidy Cascade, a doctor at the hospital who suffers from a strange medical condition and becomes a suspect when a series of tragic events plagues the institution. The actor, best known for the Twilight feature film series, has had a starring role on the past two seasons of the BBC Three comedy Cuckoo.
He is the second actor to join the cast of Scream Queens for season two. As TVWise previously reported, John Stamos has also boarded the series as a regular and will play Dr Brock Holt. Returning cast members include Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash; all of whom are reprising their roles from the show’s first season.
