Season 2 of "Feud" will focus on the marriage of Britain's Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. However, after Season 1's historical grudge between legendary Hollywood divas concludes, Season 2 of Feud will focus on royal-level tabloid fodder of epic proportions.
Ryan Murphy is the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning writer, producer and director who pioneered the modern anthological limited series with award-winning hit American Horror Story, which is now heading into its seventh year and has been ordered through season nine. Prince Charles and Princess Diana's love-hate story has already been the subject of countless movies and TV adaptations, so it will be interesting to see Murphy's take on the controversial matter. Perhaps inspired by the success of Netflix's The Crown, Murphy is mining some extremely fertile dramatic territory in this ultimate fairytale marriage gone wrong.
The nonstop Ryan Murphy train at FX continues to grow and grow.
Variety reports that the new 10-episode season will be penned by Murphy and Jon Robin Baitz, and follow Charles and Diana's much-scrutinized relationship which spanned two decades. The eight-episode season stars Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford and Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis, delving into their historic Hollywood feud.
Feud joins a long list of Murphy's projects now in development at FX. The duo will also serve as executive produces alongside Dede Gardner, Plan B Entertainment and Alexis Martin Woodall with Fox 21 Television Studios set to produce.
The second season of Feud will be of royal proportions.
