Taylor Lautner is trading in his werewolf ways for a doctor’s coat.

In a new promo for Fox’s upcoming season of Scream Queens, the Twilight star formerly known as Jacob Black is now playing a doctor by the name of – wait for it – Cassidy Cascade.

In the latest installment of Ryan Murphy‘s dark comedy, Lautner’s Dr. Cascade will meet former sorority sisters Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts), Hester Ulrich (Lea Michele) and Zayday Williams (Keke Palmer) as they check in to a hospital as medical students, once again under the watchful eye of sadistic former dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) .

Season 2 also introduces John Stamos‘ Dr.Brock Holt, though it’s Lautner who’s intro line is a real shot in the arm: “I’m basically female Viagra.”

In a behind-the-scenes featurette about the second season, 24-year-old Lautner teases that he’s “stoked. If you liked the first season, then you’re going to love the second because it’s funnier, it’s scarier – we’re just pushing more boundaries.”

Roberts, 25, says fans should expect an even edgier season 2: “I love that it’s a little bit darker. I mean, the hospital setting gives it kind of a more eerie vibe.”

Scream Queens returns Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
