From the TCA winter press tour, Deadline reports the second season of Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story TV show will not premiere on FX, until 2018.
While the first season of the FX anthology true-crime drama was American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson, the second season focuses on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and is entitled American Crime Story: Katrina.
American Crime Story Season Two Delayed Until 2018
According to the report, FX CEO John Landgraf chalked Katrina’s delay up to “material.” The news outlet adds, “Also, in New Orleans when it comes to productions, they have to contend with hurricanes and prod companies can only get insurance at certain times of the year.”
It seems the third season of the anthology series, American Crime Story: Versace, will go into production ahead of season two. That said, Versace should air six months after American Crime Story: Katrina.
