Denise Hemphill is a recurring character on Scream Queens.

In Season One, Denise was a private security guard hired by Gigi Caldwell to protect the Kappa Kappa Tau sisters. Later on, she undergoes FBI training at Quantico and becomes a high-ranking FBI agent. In Season Two, Denise helps the C.U.R.E. Institute staff solve the Green Meanie murders. In the process, she is electrocuted by one of the killers and is placed in a cryogenic chamber by Cathy Munsch in hopes of harvesting her organs. Eventually, Denise wakes up from her stasis and helps the C.U.R.E. staff disarm the bomb set up by Ingrid and finally put an end to the murders.

She is portrayed by Niecy Nash.




Season One (8/13)

Denise is my name, security is my game. Gotta watch these white girls so I can get paid... (Hell Week)

Every time someone asks if it's blood, it's almost always blood. Do you know how much of the time it's, like, ketchup? Zero percent of the time. (Chainsaw)

You tweeted, '@ShondaRhimes If Annalise Keating really wanted to get away with murder, she'd have a partner and they'd work as a team. Hashtag cahoots!' (Chainsaw)

I feel like angels are flossing my buttcrack! (Mommie Dearest)


  • Denise was the first character of the series announced.
  • Denise loves a good double cheeseburger.
  • Running causes her to lose her breath, which she treats with an inhaler. 
  • Denise was a pledge of Kappa Kappa Tau in 1988, but she was rejected because of her race.
  • In Mommie Dearest, Denise becomes the New Kappa House mom, taking care of all the girls and temporarily living in the house.
    • She wears the same size clothes as Chanel #5.
  • In Black Friday, she was promoted to Chief of Police after the entire homicide department was fired for not finding any leads on the Red Devil, and for spending the month's budget on ghost hunting supplies.
  • It was revealed in The Final Girl(s) that she had to go to Quantico to do FBI Training.
    • This is the reason why she broke up with Chad.
  • She is one of the 10 survivors of the first season, and the only one to be a recurring character.
  • In the episode Scream Again, she claims Shondell was stabbed in the face even though she was stabbed in the neck.
  • She seems to be the only one Chad revealed any real information about himself to, as she was the only one who knew he was really 30.
  • She was apparently killed in "Halloween Blues" by Wes Gardner; however, it turned out later that she survived the electrocution.
  • In Drain the Swamp, Denise says she needs glasses to see clearly; however, she has not been seen wearing glasses since she first appeared. It is possible that the cryogenic chamber damaged her eyesight, and caused her to lose some of her memory, making her think that she needs glasses.
  • She is one of the 9 survivors of Season Two.
    • Denise and Daria Janssen are the only surviving recurring characters of the second season.
    • She is also one of seven people to survive both seasons.
