FX Orders a Royal Second Season of ‘Feud,’ to Spotlight Charles and Diana
Hollywood, y’all better start brushing up on your English accents!
FX has just announced that they’ve ordered Feud: Charles and Diana, a second season of Ryan Murphy’s latest anthology limited series. The first edition, Feud: Bette and Joan, premieres this Sunday with stars Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as infamous frenemies Joan Crawford and Bette Davis battling it out on the set of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? And it is deeeeelicious!
Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as Joan Crawford and Bette Davis in 'Feud': Ryan Murphy Captures the Zeitgeist Once Again
There is no casting news on who will play the Prince Charles and young Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, but the release from FX states that the show is slated for 2018, and that Murphy and Jon Robin Baitz (currently a consulting producer for Murphy’s Katrina: American Crime Story) will write the 10-episode installment and serve as executive producers. Given the Glee guru’s penchant for playing with the same batch of actors, we’re already anticipating Sarah Paulson’s Emmy acdeptance speech for her turn as Lady Di. And is it too much to hope for Michael Sheen as Charles?
Feud: Bette and Joan, series premiere Sunday, March 5, 10/9c, FX.
