Look who's back on network TV!

Kaitlin Thomas

Kirstie Alley is returning to network television this fall.

The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress has joined the second season of Fox's horror-comedy Scream Queens, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

This season, the series will relocate from the college campus where a Red Devil terrorized sorority girls in Season 1 to a hospital run by Jamie Lee Curtis' Cathy Munsch. Alley will play a devious administrator at the hospital, where new characters played by John Stamos and Taylor Lautner will work as doctors.

Scream Queens Is Hester one of the good guys in Season 2?

In addition to Curtis, original cast members Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Billie Lourd, Glen Powell and Niecy Nash are all slated to return. The guest cast this season is also stacked and includes Jerry O'Connell, Laura Bell Bundy, Colton Haynes, Cecily Strong and Cheri Oteri.

This is Alley's first regular role since her ill-fated 2013 TV Land series Kirstie was canceled. Since then the Cheers actress has appeared on ABC's The Middle and Netflix's Flaked.

Scream Queens returns Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c on Fox.
