Kirstie Alley Joins Scream Queens as Series Regular

The list of of potential "Scream Queens" victims keeps on growing.

Veteran television and film actress Kirstie Alley ("Cheers," "Kirstie") is the latest to join the horror-comedy series from Ryan Murphy ("Glee," "American Horror Story") for the show's second season. Deadline reports that Alley will play "a brilliant and devious administrator" at the C.U.R.E. Institute, a medical facility housing some of the stranger varieties of patients.

Season One survivors including Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin will all reprise their original roles alongside other "Scream Queens" newcomers including John Stamos, James Earl, Colton Haynes and Taylor Lautner.

Debuting on FOX, the first season of "Scream Queens" mixed traditional horror tropes and black humor as it followed members of the Kappa Kappa Tau as they tried to survive a murderous serial killer dressed as the school's mascot on their college campus. While garnering a mixed critical reception, "Scream Queens" earned an immediate cult following, all but ensuring the second season currently filming. Alley could most recently be seen on Netflix's "Flaked," and Showtime's "Fat Actress," but audiences should start placing their bets on if she can manage to survive Season Two, since its first episode airs next week on September 20.
