Ryan Murphy to Take On Prince Charles and Princess Diana's Split in Next Feud
On Tuesday, the network announced its royal subjects for next season
Today, FX announced that Ryan Murphy’s Feud, an anthology series that is set to premiere on Sunday, will be getting a second season — and Charles and Diana will be at the the center of it.
Feud season one premieres March 5 and focuses on the battle royale between Hollywood icons Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Feud: Charles and Diana will have 10 episodes compared to the first season’s eight and is set to debut in 2018.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles married in 1981 in a ceremony hailed as the “wedding of the century.” They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, just a year before Diana’s tragic death in a car crash in Paris. This summer will mark the 20th anniversary of her death.
Royal-focused series are having their moment in the spotlight. The Crown, Netflix’s drama about the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II, premiered last November to rave reviews and went on to win big at the Golden Globes. And two new PBS series, Secrets of the Six Wives and Victoria, also recently explored various chapters of royal history.
