FX Renews ‘American Crime Story’ for Season Three

Third Season Will Explore the Murder of Designer Gianni Versace by Serial Killer Andrew Cunanan

Prior to the second season airing, FX has ordered a third season of anthology “American Crime Story.” Season three of the Ryan Murphy anthology will be based on Maureen Orth’s 1999 book Vulgar Favors, which explores the murder of designer Gianni Versace by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The book also attempts to paint a psychological portrait of Cunanan, who killed four other people and ultimately took his own life.

Season two of “American Crime Story,” which will air in 2017, will tackle the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and is based on Douglas Brinkley’s book, “The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”

The inaugural season of “American Crime Story,” subtitled “The People v. OJ Simpson,” won 10 Emmy awards, including Outstanding Miniseries and acting trophies for Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson and Sterling K. Brown.
