Is The 'Scream Queens' House The Same As The 'American Horror Story: Coven' House? An Investigation

For those of you who are awaiting the arrival of Fox's new Ryan Murphy-helmed show Scream Queens as desperately as I am (aka: really, really, really desperately) you may have noticed an interesting thing whilst watching/rewatching the new official trailer about 30 times in one hour: The sorority house featured in Scream Queens looks insanely similar to the one featured in Season 3 of American Horror Story, titled Coven. Since both shows are created by Ryan Murphy, it's not an insane connection to make — and does sort of make you wonder whether or not the houses are actually the same one. Plus, as The Times-Picayune points out, Scream Queens was shot in New Orleans, just like Coven was. 

So, could  they be the same house?

Unfortunately for those of you hoping for a reason to theorize a Scream QueensCoven connection, no, the houses don't seem to be the same. At first glance, they look similar, but, after some analyzing, it becomes clear that there are some key differences between the home used on Scream Queens, and The Buckner Mansion as seen on Coven. So, in honor of the Scream Queens official trailer hitting the web on Tuesday, here are just a few of those key differences.

But first, the trailer:

And now...

The Staircase

So, though they look similar, the structure of the house is clearly different — and the Coven house looks much older, which makes sense since it's a school for witches.

The Dining Room

While they're both gigantic, Coven's dining room is more of an open space — while Scream Queens' dining room has a much larger table.

The Living Room

Scream Queens' living room features more pink.

The Courtyard

Two key differences: Scream Queens' courtyard is more spacious, plus it has doomed sorority sisters buried in the grass.

The Exterior

The houses actually look quite similar at first glance — but it's clear after a moment that there are some subtle differences. The deck in Coven's home, for instance, is larger.

Scream Queens will premiere this fall, on Fox.
