FX has picked up a second season of its yet-to-premiere anthology series “Feud.”
The news came down Tuesday, five days before the premiere of “Feud: Bette and Joan,” which will chronicle the rivalry between Hollywood legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in the early 1960s. It premieres March 5.
Season 2 of “Feud” will focus on the marriage of Britain’s Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. It’s slated to run for 10 episodes, with a premiere date sometime in 2018.
Ryan Murphy executive produces “Feud” and will write the Charles and Diana season with “Brothers and Sisters” creator Jon Robin Baitz. The two are also working together on Season 2 of “American Crime Story,” which is set in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Casting for the title roles in “Feud: Charles and Diana” hasn’t begun yet.
The renewal of “Feud” means FX has committed to six additional seasons of Murphy-produced anthology series. The cable channel has renewed “American Horror Story” through Season 9 and has two seasons of “American Crime Story” — the Katrina one and one about the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace — on its plate.
“Feud” joins these shows that have been renewed for 2017-18 and beyond.
