Following the success of The People v OJ Simpson, FX is continuing American Crime Story as an anthology series, with each season focusing on a new true crime. The Versace installment was originally slated to air as season three, but it was announced last week that it had been moved up to season two, likely airing early in 2018.
Adapted from the true crime book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth, the series will chronicle the 1997 murder of Versace. Cunanan shot Versace dead on the steps of his Miami Beach home after committing several other murders. He committed suicide eight days later.
