Fans have praised Billie Lourd's performance as Chanel #3 on Scream QueensReuters

Billie Lourd is set to join FX's anthology drama American Horror Story season 7 and the 24-year-old will join Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters in the politically-charged seventh instalment created by Ryan Murphy. However, her addition to the popular show has sparked rumours that Scream Queens may have been cancelled.

The seventh season of the FX horror series is based on the 2016 US presidential election and Lourd's character is still under wraps. However, her addition to AHS has sent Scream Queens fans into meltdown as they are certain that she will not return for another season. "Ok. So I'm guessing Scream Queens is cancelled and they're waiting to announce it for some reason?" one fan wrote on Twitter.

"Although now I'm worried this mean Scream Queens has been cancelled," another fan tweeted. The late Carrie Fisher's daughter played the fan favourite Chanel #3 in the Fox horror comedy which aired its season 2 finale on 20 December. However, Murphy, who is also the creator of Scream Queens, has not confirmed whether the show would return with season 3. Even after Lourd's casting news, Fox has remained silent on the revival/cancellation of the show.

The late Carrie Fisher's daughter played the fan-favourite Chanel #3 in the Fox horror comedy which aired its finale on 20 December. But Murphy, who is also the creator of Scream Queens, is yet to confirm a third season.

Even after Lourd's casting news, Fox has remained silent on the revival/cancellation of the show.

Scream Queens revolves around a psychopath who goes on a killing spree. It focussed on Chanel Oberlin (played by Emma Roberts) and her minions who have made the show interesting with their funny antics.

However, the show failed to attract a large viewership and the producers decided to added Taylor Lautner and John Stamos to its cast. Yet, the show's rating did not climb and this could be one of the reasons the network is yet to confirm whether the show would continue.
