The first full trailer of Fox's "Scream Queens" has been revealed.

The series, which was helmed by "Glee" and "American Horror Story" creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan, and Dante Di Loreto, centers on a murderer stalking a college sorority. Watch the trailer below.

"Scream Queens" will showcase an all-star cast comprised of Emma Roberts (Chanel), Jamie Lee Curtis (Cathy Munsch), Lea Michele (Hester), Keke Palmer (Zayday), Oliver Hudson, Abigail Breslin, Nick Jonas, Ariana Grande, Billie Lourd, Nasim Pedrad, and Glen Powell, the news outlet reported. Entertainment Weekly previously unveiled exclusive first photos featuring the cast.

The horror anthology series will premiere on Fox in the fall of 2015, Coming Soon noted. "Scream Queens" is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association Ryan Murphy Television.

In Entertainment Weekly's interview with Murphy, it was said that "Scream Queens" will open in a flashback in 1995 featuring an unsolved crime mystery at the sorority. "Something horrible happened to a pledge and on the anniversary of that crime" twenty years later, indicating that someone is exacting revenge.

According to Murphy, the series was based on the '80s/early '90s slasher genre which involves young people.

"The other thing it's inspired by is it's a real murder mystery whodunit," Murphy told Entertainment Weekly. "In the very first episode you meet all the characters and then the killings start happening on this college campus. Every character in the piece has the motivation to be the killer. So when you're watching it, part of the fun is, 'Okay who did it?' It's not revealed until the last episode when literally the mask of the Red Devil, who is the killer, comes off and we say, 'Boom here's your killer.'"

Mixed with a lot of love triangles and sex, "Scream Queens" will showcase character deaths by a killer wearing a devil mask in each episode.

"It's always somebody you least suspect or expect. The killer is on a reign of terror," Murphy explained to the news outlet. "There's a real tune-in factor because it's like, 'Who's going to be picked off this week? And also who is the killer?' Every episode, you get clues as to who the killer is going to be and then all of these clues accumulate. Whoever survives-and there will be people who will survive-they will go on next season to a new location and a new terror."

Murphy also said that viewers will see the "Scream Queens" characters being pitted against each other in "some weird, f*cked-up 'Hunger Games' way," Vulture reported, adding that only three or four characters will survive when the first season ends.

"Scream Queens" will premiere on Fox in the fall of 2015, Coming Soon noted.
