Hold on to your hats, fashion folks—Ryan Murphy is bringing the story of Gianni Versace’s murder to the small screen.
American Crime Story, Murphy’s anthology series that dramatizes true crime, became a critical success in its debut season, which focused on the O.J. Simpson trial. Season two is set to explore Hurricane Katrina, but Deadline is reporting that the series has already be picked up for a third season, which will focus on the untimely death of the fashion designer. The series will be based on the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth.
The story has already been touched upon on television in House of Versace, a Lifetime TV movie. To be fair, that production focused more on Donatella, not the investigation of Gianni’s murder, and the house itself disavowed that production.
That being said, Lifetime had some pretty good casting for all members of the Versace family—could Murphy bring some of those players over? Or will he choose from his impressive repeat roster? C’mon, you’re already hoping he’ll ask Gaga to play Donatella, aren’t you?
One thing is for sure: The fashion will be on point. Murphy and co. clearly had a ball with the costumes for American Horror Story: Hotel. Can you imagine what they’ll do with Gianni Versace at his height, and Miami ’90s realness?
Audiences will have to wait, as production has not yet started, and season two will not premiere until 2017. In the meantime, you can get excited about another anthology drama, Feud, which will look at the bad blood between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Old Hollywood glamour, fashion royalty, and whatever the hell is happening on Scream Queens, Murphy knows good camp.
