'American Crime Story: Katrina' Won't Air Until 2018

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is a special series. it's both compelling and relevant, among other things, and I for one cannot wait for the next season. That one is based on hurricane Katrina, and it won't be reaching our screens until 2018.

FX CEO John Landgraf announced the unfortunate news, but did say that it will be followed quite hastily by the series' third season, Versace, which explores the 1997 murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.

“They’re going to have a long hiatus, and then we’re going to get back on cycle,” said Landgraf. “They’re going to air within about six months of each other.” He denied any speculation that Versace would in fact come before Katrina. "That's not the plan." So, while Versace is shooting first, it won't be airing first.

The delay comes as a result of production issues. "“We’d developed ‘People V O.J.’ and we had it ready to go and Ryan stepped in,” he said. “We just have really high ambitions. It’s not a lurid true crime series. It’s taken time.” The first series earned 10 Emmy wins, a record, and while FX would be eager to keep the train moving, it's at least reassuring to know that time is being taken.

The only thing we know so far is that Lady Gaga will not be playing Donatella Versace in the third season.
