The crime series receives an early pickup.
October 18, 2016
FX is doubling down on American Crime Story and has renewed the anthology series for a third season well ahead of its Season 2 premiere, which has yet to set a premiere date. The good news comes following a strong debut outing for American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson earlier this year, which garnered impressive ratings and high critical praise, including multiple Emmy Award wins.
Today's Season 3 order will be for quite sometime down the road, focusing on a topic yet to be decided.
We already know that Season 2 will focus on the 1997 assassination of famed designer Gianni Versace, who was killed in front of his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan, who committed suicide eight days later.
