With season two of FX’s Ryan Murphy anthology series “American Crime Story” still in the works, the cable network has renewed the series for season three — and revealed which crime it will examine.

Season three will focus on the killing of fashion icon Gianni Versace in July 1997, with Maureen Orth’s book “Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History” as source material.

The focus of season two, Hurricane Katrina, was revealed previously, with the season drawing from Douglas Brinkley’s “The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that seasons two and three will be in production concurrently in early 2017. The rollout date for season two has yet to be announced.

Season three, which will consist of 10 episodes, is expected to unspool in 2018.
