Ratched and The Politician were just the beginning of Ryan Murphy’s Netflix career. The American Horror Story and Pose showrunner has officially made the streaming service his new home, signing a whopping $300 million deal to develop new series for the next five years.
It’s been a long road to the second season of American Crime Story, but The Assassination of Gianni Versace is finally upon us. FX confirms a 2018 premiere with some sinister new teasers for the Emmy-winner’s sophomore outing.
The 2017 Emmys served as reminder that American Crime Story sat out this year, but The Assassination of Gianni Versace could-well pick up where People v. O.J. left off. See for yourself in new Season 2 promos, including our first actual footage from the series.
American Horror Story may be using real-life terror for its Season 7 Cult, but nothing so true to life as sibling series American Crime Story. See for yourself in our first teaser for The Assassination of Gianni Versace, picking up from The People v. O.J. Simpson in 2018.
No one was exactly surprised to hear that FX’s Katrina: American Crime Story had stalled in favor of Versace, but neither FX nor Ryan Murphy will scrap the idea outright. Instead, production has been pushed to 2019 with a revamped premise and cast, and confirmed to feature Sarah Paulson in a leading role.
We weren’t terribly surprised when Versace: American Crime Story overtook Katrina as the next installment, but it seems the New Orleans-set chapter may have fallen apart altogether. Directors say the FX project is “stalled,” calling into question whether it films at all.
If you’re wondering why American Crime Story’s third, Versace-based season has made considerably more press than Season 2’s Katrina, there’s good reason. FX confirms that Versace will now serve as Season 2, as Katrina shores up its returning cast and special effects.
