Glee co-creator Ryan Murray‘s next show, the upcoming horror anthology Scream Queens, will star Lea Michele and feature Ariana Grande in a recurring role. FOX announced the news January 17 at the ongoing 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour.

When news of Scream Queens first broke, the show was already to star Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts. Now, these stars are set to appear alongside Michele, Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) and Keke Palmer (True Jackson). The show, about a college campus dealing with a series of murders, goes into production this spring.

Currently, Michele is starring in the sixth (and final) season of Glee. Meanwhile, Grande bid goodbye to Nickelodeon’s Sam and Cat just last summer, when the show was canceled. Both of these actresses had appeared in family-friendly shows before they tried out singing, so their transition into TV-14 territory — whether they see demons or not — should be interesting to watch.
