Just days before the debut of FX's latest Ryan Murphy anthology series, "Feud," the network has already renewed the show for a second season, and revealed its splashy, royal theme.
"Feud" season two will focus on the whirlwind fairytale romance and subsequent bitter divorce of infamous British royals Princess Diana and Prince Charles. The season, which is currently titled "Feud: Charles and Diana," is set to air sometime in 2018.
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, there are multiple angles from which Murphy and co. can approach Charles and Diana's story, including the immense power of the British monarchy, and the superstar-level celebrity status and intense, crushing media attention that came along with it. The pair's lavish 1981 wedding made international headlines, as did their 1996 divorce; Diana was routinely hounded by the press throughout their marriage, right up through her death in a 1998 car crash, the result of her trying to evade paparazzi.
Though no further information about the new season was released by FX or Murphy, the theme is in keeping with what the creator had previously said about potential future installments of "Feud." According to Murphy, the show will avoid dipping back into Hollywood territory, which it's exploring in season one through the lens of the notorious rivalry between actresses Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon).
Stay tuned for more intel on season two of "Feud." Season one, "Feud: Bette and Joan," is set to debut on FX on March 5.
