Ryan Murphy’s FX ‘Feud’ Will Tackle Charles and Diana in Season 2
As if Ryan Murphy hadn’t already taken over FX with new seasons of American Horror Story and Crime in the pipeline, the next Feud could be the biggest yet. Before the Hollywood anthology even debuts, FX confirms Feud Season 2 will follow the infamous drama surrounding Princess Diana and Prince Charles.
FX confirmed as much before Feud Season 1's March 5 premiere, setting a preliminary 2018 airdate for the Charles and Diana season. Amusingly, Entertainment Weekly notes that Feud Season 2 may run alongside Season 3 of Netflix’s The Crown, which will also introduce its own version of Lady Diana.
For those not necessarily versed in royal drama, the Princess and Prince of Wales were married in 1981, eventually separating in 1992 and finally divorcing in 1996 over his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. It remains unclear exactly which sections of the relationship might spark the Feud, though certainly Diana’s tragic fate in a 1997 paparazzi-fueled car crash will end up playing a part.
Murphy and Jon Robin Baitz will write the ten-episode Feud: Charles and Diana, also serving as executive producers with Dede Gardner, Plan B Entertainment and Alexis Martin Woodall.
In the meantime, Feud: Bette and Joan will premiere on March 5, while Murphy continually plots at least four seasons of American Crime Story, and who knows how many Horrors after that.
