Joe Manganiello has been replaced by Oliver Hudson on the show "Scream Queens" after the actor dropped out of the upcoming series because of his commitments to promoting his film ‘Magic Mike XXL’ internationally.

The 38-year-old "True Blood" actor has to bow out of the upcoming horror-comedy anthology series from Ryan Murphy due to "scheduling conflicts," reported Aceshowbiz.

"Scream Queens", slated to premiere this fall, also stars Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Ariana Grande, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer, Nick Jonas and Skyler Samuels.

The first season will centre on a college campus rocked by several murders.
