Introducing the Chanels: The Mean Girls of Scream Queens

When Scream Queens debuts in September, it’ll introduce a fresh brand of hell to college Greek life with the ladies of Kappa Kappa Tau. They’re called the Chanels, after their “bitch” of a tyrant, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts), whom we get a closer look at in a new series of character profiles. As Roberts puts it lightly, she’s not exactly “warm and fuzzy.”

We also meet the rest of her mean-girl clique, starting with Ariana Grande’s Chanel No. 2. Creator Ryan Murphy felt Grande might enjoy the role because she’s into all that “messed-up horror, Gothic, crazy, weird stuff.”

And then there’s Chanel Nos. 3 and 5 (the fate, or even existence, of Chanel No. 4 remains a mystery). They’re the Gretchen and Karen of the group, played by Billie Lourd and Abigail Breslin, just two of the many “super-good-looking and chill” sociopaths you’ll presumably love to hate this fall.
