Season one of the anthology drama covered the events before, during, and after the infamous OJ Simpson murder trial. The cast included Cuba Gooding Jr., Sarah Paulson, John Travolta, and David Schwimmer.
Season two of American Crime Story will explore Hurricane Katrina. Season one star Paulson has already said she’s in for the second season, saying:
I would be more excited than almost anything to have a crack at something else with this same creative team. For me, the idea of treating Katrina as an American Crime Story is incredibly resonant, powerful and accurate. The Katrina story, to me, is a literal American crime. It says something about a uniquely American attitude, and I find it incredibly potent. I’ve begged them, and there have been some conversations”
Additionally, Travolta has also expressed interest in returning. When the hurricane hit New Orleans in 2005, Travolta flew down to provide food and medical supplies for the victims.
FX has not yet announced a premiere date for season two of American Crime Story.
