FX Has Already Renewed ‘American Crime Story’ For A Third Season About The Versace Murder

In case you were worried Ryan Murphy doesn’t already have enough on his plate, with the current seasons of American Horror Story: Roanoke (not to mention the “secret season”) and Scream Queens and the upcoming American Crime Story and Feud, fret no longer. FX announced today that American Crime Story has already been renewed for season three, months before season two — which will cover the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans — even premieres. That leaves more time for Travolta to sign up.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the 10-episode third season of American Crime Story is based on Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History and will “explore the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace. His killer, Andrew Cunanan, committed suicide eight days later as Miami Dade police were on the verge of capturing the serial killer behind five slayings.”

Ryan Murphy and FX is a partnership that clearly works — as long as American Crime Story keeps winning Emmys (nine for The People v. O.J. Simpson) and American Horror Story continues to be a hit, then FX will allow Murphy to include all the sex, violence, and Cuba Gooding, Jr. having sex with Lady Gaga in the woods near two dirty inbreds (it’s been a weird season) he wants.
