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.
When Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, and Lea Michele first banded together for a new Fox show, Scream Queens, no one knew what to expect. But despite varying ratings, it definitely clicked with a young demographic who loved the gorgeous designer clothes, horrifying murders and hilarious one-liners.
The show is “still very much in consideration for renewal,” but so far its fate hasn’t been revealed by the network. We’re rooting for renewal, and it’s all because of Chanel #1. There has never been a darker, funnier and more fashion-forward sorority protagonist before or since.
Here’s the proof… 10 of her best quotes ever:
1. “Learn to make a pumpkin spice latte, you psychopath.”

We finally have some info about the possibility of a third season of Scream Queens!
During the 2017 TCA Winter Press Tour, Fox execs Gary Newman and David Madden said season three is still a possibility.
“It’s very much still in consideration for a renewal. The ratings don’t tell the whole story; because it’s such a young audience, you can’t really even see the full picture even in L+3,” David told Variety.
Gary added, “Like Pitch and The Exorcist, we’re not going to make any decisions until later this year. Obviously, we would have loved to have seen it do bigger numbers. The delayed viewing is there. It reaches a hard-to-reach younger audience, which we like, but we’re just going to have to see what our needs are when we get closer to May.”
We hope they decide to renew the show!
