The pledges of Kappa Kappa Tau (at least those who escaped the Red Devil) are leaving town.

FOX’s campy, comedy-horror series “Scream Queens,” which shot its first season in New Orleans, is heading to California for its sophomore year, thanks to expanded tax credits from the California Film Commission.

It joins FX’s “American Horror Story,” which filmed seasons 3 and 4 in New Orleans, before also moving to the West Coast, where its first, second and fifth seasons were shot.

“American Horror Story” will get $9.3 million from the commission toward its sixth season, while “Scream Queens” will receive $9.2 million, entertainment outlet Variety reports.

“Scream Queens,” set on the fictional Wallace University campus, will begin production in California in July. It stars Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Lea Michele, Glen Powell, Diego Boneta, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Nasim Pedrad, Lucien Laviscount, Oliver Hudson, Billie Lourd and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Both series are helmed by Ryan Murphy (“Nip/Tuck,” “Glee”) and Brad Falchuk (“Glee”).
