Roberts shared a brief clip that reveals how the Chanels managed to end up working as medical students in their former headmistress's (Jamie Lee Curtis's) experimental hospital. Apparently, there has been a series of mysterious illnesses taking over some of Dean Cathy Munsch's patients and she wants to use their girls' help to solve each case.
