American Crime Story Season 3

FX's American Crime Story Season 3 to Revolve Around Versace Murder

Another sensational murder case is getting the American Crime Story treatment.

As first reported by Deadline, the third season of Ryan Murphy’s Emmy-winning anthology will center on the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. One week later, Cunanan would take his own life.

Tentatively titled Versace/Cunanan: American Crime Story, the 10-episode season will be based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth.

Season 2 of American Crime Story, which examines the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, will debut in 2017. American Crime Story‘s O.J. Simpson-themed first season cleaned up at the Emmys last month, winning 9 trophies including best limited series.

    I’m not sure I get what American Crime Story and the aftermath of hurricane Katrina have in common. Probably some news I missed, can someone please elaborate?

    Good choice. The Versace story isn’t a story that’s been overdone.

    You can already pencil in Sarah Paulson for Donatella.

    Im a little surprised, given how well The People vs. OJ did that Murphy isn’t doing more high profile crimes like the Manson family, ted bundy, the menendez brothers, or Jonbenet Ramsey. The list goes on and on, so to here the focus post OJ will be Hurricane Katrina and Versace/Cunanan is very surprising to me. Having said that, there must be a very strong story to tell for both cases, if Murphy is this committed to telling them, so I am intrigued. I am curious to see how they plan to tell Versace/Cunanan in 10 episodes when, as the article points out Cunanan shot versace for no real reason then killed himself a few days later. I am curious to see what elements of the murder the seasons focuses on to stretch it out to 10, again there must be a strong story to tell if they are committing this early to it.

    I really hope Ryan Murphy is calling Enrico Colantoni to play Versace.
