One of the most exciting projects on Ryan Murphy’s production horizon is the follow-up to his game-changing American Crime Story. Actually, make that two follow-ups.
Murphy took the stage at a very special panel at Entertainment Weekly’s PopFest on Sunday to reveal details about the dual forthcoming installments of Crime Story, the Emmy-winning series which launched its inaugural season centered on the O.J. Simpson trial.
The second installment of FX’s highly acclaimed American Crime Story, which won nine Emmys at this year’s ceremony, hasn’t even aired yet, but EW has confirmed the network has already ordered a third season to focus on the 1997 murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.
The third installment will be titled Versace/Cunanan: American Crime Story and based on the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth.
American Crime Story recently scored a whopping 22 Emmy nominations. Starting in 2017, Netflix subscribers will be able to see why when the platform gains exclusive streaming rights to the series.
The critics like it, so ABC does too: The network just picked up a third season of the limited series American Crime.
The franchise that’s been nominated for 10 Emmy Awards — including a win for supporting actress Regina King — will feature a new crime in a different setting and told through the eyes of those affected. In its second season, it averaged just over 6 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18–49.
In the twilight world of The Americans, the prick of conscience can be deadly. For more than a season, Nina Krilova (Annet Mahendru), a disgraced KGB agent, has been stuck behind the Iron Curtain doing perverse penance, using her powers of seduction to spy on comrades or manipulate them. Eventually, though, the degrading work wore her down, and recently, her latest mark, a captive physicist named Anton Baklanov, got the best of her by rousing the best in her: she tried to get a note to his family. For this crime of the heart, Nina was shot through the head.
Missed a few episodes of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story? FX has you covered.
The network will air the first five episodes of the true crime series on Saturday without any commercials, beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
The network cleared its schedule after the Los Angeles Police Department announced it would test a knife allegedly found at Simpson’s residence 16 years ago.

Four episodes of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story have aired, and the series has produced one growing meme: David Schwimmer’s use of the word “Juice.”
Schwimmer plays Simpson’s close friend and attorney Robert Kardashian in the anthology series, a character who affords the former Friends star a chance to say “Juice” quite often. To celebrate this frequent occurrence, YouTube user Nicholas Martin cut together every instance in a new mashup video.
The People v. OJ Simpson has earned rave reviews for its reenactment of the most famous murder trial of the 1990s, but it has come under a bit of fire for the way it uses the Kardashian family. Naturally, when James Corden had Khloé Kardashian on his show Tuesday night, he asked her about it.
This shouldn’t come as a huge shock: Khloé Kardashian doesn’t seem to be in a major hurry to see The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story on FX.
