Everyone's excited about the new anthology series from American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy, and Feud just got even more exciting. It's been announced on Tuesday that Feud Season 2 will focus on Charles and Diana's marriage and estrangement, which sounds like something everyone wants to watch. Season 1 of the show premieres on March 5, so it's more than a little impressive to find out that a second season has been greenlit already. The first season focuses on the infamous feud between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis on the set of their movie Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? and, especially since it's starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon, the series is guaranteed to be must-watch television.
Clearly, Feud: Charles & Diana will take the series in a totally different direction, featuring a very different feud and relationship dynamic. Princess Diana is still a much-loved figure, and her dramatic, and ultimately miserable, marriage to Prince Charles is a point of much contention for the British royal family. As 2017 marks the twentieth anniversary of Princess Diana's death, several television shows and documentaries plan to explore her life in more detail and celebrate the positive impact she had on the world. While Feud will explore the difficulties Diana faced in her relationship with Charles, hopefully the series will honor her legacy.
Following the success of Netflix's The Crown, it's unsurprising that Ryan Murphy's newest anthology series will explore the British royal family. There has already been much discussion regarding whether or not Charles and Diana will be in The Crown. In Dec. 2016, People revealed that Princess Diana is due to be "introduced toward the end of season three and will be heavily featured in the following two seasons." As Feud is due to be broadcast in 2018, it will tell the story of the famous failed royal marriage long before The Crown does.
According to a press release from FX, Feud Season 2 will premiere sometime in 2018 and has received a 10-episode order, meaning fans of Murphy's work have a lot to look forward to.
