The show comes from masterminds Jeremy Bronson, who will also write the show, and Hamilton's Daveed Diggs. It follows a struggling hip-hop artist, Courtney Rose, who runs for mayor for the sole purpose of promoting his mixtape. Then...he gets elected. The original role offered to Michele was that of Valentina Flores, Rose's Chief of Staff. The official description for Michele's role has yet to be released.
When it comes to Scream Queens, things are even more mysterious. While Fox has yet to announce whether or not there will be a third season of the show, Deadline considers it unlikely.
"2017 is off to an amazing start!" she wrote in the message. "Excited to announce my new album will be released soon. Another New Year surprise...There will be limited live shows coming sooner than you think! Stay tuned!"
While we'll definitely miss Hester Ulrich, we're excited for the new roles Michele has ahead, whether they're on the screen or in front of a microphone.
