Fear not, bewildered Scream Queens fans – the show’s cast is just as unsure who the Red Devil is as you are.

In her cover interview for the November issue of Teen Vogue, Emma Roberts admits that, almost halfway through the season, showrunner Ryan Murphy is still keeping the violent killer’s identity under wraps.

“None of us know how the show ends. We don’t know who the killer is; we don’t even know who’s going to live and who’s going to die,” says the actress, 24. “Apparently only four people will go on to season 2.”

Frustrating as this may be for the show’s viewers, Roberts, who plays manipulative queen bee Chanel, says it’s “fun” for her and her costars.

“I think everyone secretly thinks they’re the killer, so they are kind of playing it like that.”

At least this explains why we leave each episode thinking a different character is the killer (or killers?!).

Roberts also opens up to Teen Vogue about playing the ultimate mean girl on the show.

“Ryan has written Chanel to be very articulate, clever and fierce. I actually called him and was like, ‘Is she too mean? Are people going to hate her?’ And he said, ‘No, they’re going to love to hate her,’ ” Roberts says. “Chanel is a mean girl and says things that I definitely don’t agree with, but I like that there’s a layer of smartness to her, so I try to come from a place of understanding.”

Still, she admits, “There are definitely times when I’m apologizing to all of the girls when we say ‘cut.’ ”

Scream Queens airs Tuesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Fox.
