Is Scream Queens the best TV show that hasn’t even been made yet?

Judging by FOX’s latest cast announcement, we’re certainly inclined to think so!

Following the news that pop superstar Ariana Grande will have a recurring role in the series, set to premiere in the fall, FOX has announced that Nick Jonas will also be joining the horror-comedy in a recurring role.

Jonas, 22, burst back onto the scene post-Jonas Brothers fame in 2014 with a self-titled debut album and a starring role in DirecTV’s Kingdom, in which he plays a closeted gay character.

The first season of the anthology series will take place on a college campus rocked by a series of murders, FOX says in a press release. The brand-new series begins production in the spring with showrunner Ryan Murphy at the helm along with his Glee co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.

The “Jealous” singer joins previously announced cast regulars Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Joe Manganiello, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin and Keke Palmer. No specific plot or character details have been released as of yet, but admit it – with a cast like this, aren’t you already on board?
