The anthology series is coming back after a 5-year absence.
April 1, 2022
It is being reported that FX is finally proceeding with a second season of Feud. It has been five years since the anthology drama aired its freshman run, leading many to wonder if the show would return at all, despite receiving an early Season 2 pickup before its series premiere back in 2017.
From Ryan Murphy, the first installment of Feud, 'Bette and Joan', focused on the backstage battle between Hollywood icons Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during their time on the set of 1962's 'What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?'. At the time, there was already talk that Season 2 would focus on the dissolution of Prince Charles and Princess Diana's marriage, but it was eventually scrapped a year later. All has been silent until now.
Today's news brings word that Season 2 of Feud is indeed on its way and will be subtitled 'Capote's Women', based on Laurence Leamer's book of the same name. Gus Van Sant has been tapped to direct and Naomi Watts will star in the upcoming season, which will focus on how the author had a falling out with various New York society women, whom he called his 'swans,' in the 1970s.
"Despite his big payday and half dozen Emmy awards, Murphy has been overrated for decades. Go all the way back to his network breakthrough, Glee, and he already was penning lines like, “Music sets my soul on fire.” Watching earlier successes like Nip/Tuck and American Horror Story, it was already evident that he can’t write original stories or real characters, by which I mean the sort defined by the depths and contradictions that distinguish all of us from stereotypes. As a result, almost all the people in his shows tend to be jerks or fools or bullies who are engaged in shallow quests for fame or power or beauty."
Not judging. I think all to their own. I could care less if you are Tran, Gay, Bi, Or whatever the latest terms are. Just quit throwing it in our faces. Your here, your queer, dont give a F get out of my face and let me have a good day.
Chris Rock won't want any part of the feud. But the always ready Tonya Harding is a good match for Will Smith. Incude bulbous Jada Pinkett for a three way ego fracas.
