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.
