American Crime Story‘s next case now has a official court date.

Season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology — subtitled The Assassination of Gianni Versace — will premiere Wednesday, Jan. 17 at 10/9c, the network announced on Wednesday. Versace centers on the infamous 1997 murder of the iconic fashion designer, with Edgar Ramirez starring as Versace and Glee alum Darren Criss playing killer Andrew Cunanan. (Ricky Martin co-stars as Versace’s romantic partner Antonio D’Amico, with Penelope Cruz as Versace’s sister Donatella.)

The new season of ACS comes nearly two full years after the first installment, The People v. O.J. Simpson, which debuted in Febuary 2016 and went on to win a total of nine Emmys. Versace leap-frogged in front of a proposed ACS season based on Hurricane Katrina, which was set to air next, but will now air as the anthology’s third season.

Murphy told reporters this summer that Versace will be a more dynamic season than O.J.: “That was a much more interior show. We spent so much time in that courthouse. Here, we really go across the country. It’s a manhunt season… it has a great breadth and a great scope.”
