What’s in store for American Crime Story? According to The Hollywood Reporter, season two of the FX series will feature more episodes and some familiar faces.
From Ryan Murphy, the anthology drama presents a fictionalized version of a real crime each season. Season one documented the infamous OJ Simpson murder trial. The cast included Cuba Gooding Jr, John Travolta, David Schwimmer, and Sarah Paulson.
It’s already been revealed that season two will dramatize the events of Hurricane Katrina. Recently, Murphy told THR the season will focus on the stories of people surviving:
It’s an amazing tragedy that you cannot believe happened in America. But along with the overwhelming horribleness and sadness, you also have amazing stories of [people] coming together. We’re laying into what do you do when you’re in a city and your government has abandoned you? You get out by climbing up and pulling up people with you, and to a large degree that’s what the mini-series is about. It’s not just what happened but heroic stories about people surviving — or in some cases, dying helping others.”
The executive producer also revealed that no casting decisions have been made yet, but there will be returning actors from season one:
I don’t think it’s going to be like American Horror Story where you see almost the entire troupe return. You will see some people, but not all of them.”
What do you think? Did you see season one of American Crime Story? Will you watch season two?
