Fans of FX’s “American Crime Story” will be happy to know that the network has renewed the show for a third season.
American Crime Story debuted earlier this year with “The People vs. OJ Simpson” and quickly became a fan favorite. The initial season explored the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and the infamous OJ Simpson murder trial in 1994.
Soon after the show’s finale, it was announced that FX had decided to green light the show for a second season, this time following the events surrounding Hurricane Katrina. At the time of its announcement, the new season was still in its early writing stages. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new season of American Crime Story, “Katrina,” would focus on a group of six to eight New Orleans natives following the tragic affects of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Now, before Katrina even hits our television sets, Deadline has confirmed that season three has been approved. According to the reports, season three of American Crime Story will focus on the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace at his Miami mansion.
Though there aren’t many details on the the third season as of yet, Deadline reports that the title will be Versace/Cunanan:American Crime Story and will based on the book, “Vulgar Favors” by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth.
Versace and Katrina will film almost simultaneously, but Katrina will air first. Versace/Cunanan will begin filming in Los Angeles and Miami next spring
