Lea Michele Won't Return to 'Scream Queens' if Season 3 Happens

Fans of Lea Michele‘s character Hester Ulrich on the Fox comedy Scream Queens are going to be disappointed by this news – the actress will not return to the series if a third season is ordered.

Lea‘s fans do have something to look forward to though – she has joined the cast of an upcoming ABC comedy pilot about a city mayor, which is also starring Hamilton‘s Tony winner Daveed Diggs.

The series will follow “what happens when an outspoken, idealistic rapper Courtney (Search Party‘s Brandon Micheal Hall) runs for office as a publicity stunt. When he actually gets elected, he surprises everyone (including himself) when he has a natural knack for the job and slowly transforms city hall,” according to THR.

Lea‘s character was reportedly originally planned to be Courtney’s chief of staff, but the role is being modified to fit her.

Ryan Murphy has reportedly released Lea from her deal to star in the potential third season of Scream Queens. The show has not yet been renewed and is still on the bubble as pilot season heads into full swing. If the show does return, it will come back without Hester Ulrich.

    I’ve profited 104,000 bucks in 2016 by working from my house and I did that by w­orking in my own time f­o­r several hrs each day. I used an earning model I came across from this website i found online and I am so thrilled that I was able to earn so much money. It’s newbie-friendly and I am just so grateful that i found it.

    I really like her as an actress, but the show was better when focusing on Chanel Oberlin. If I was the producer, I’d go back to glamour.
