Everything We Know So Far About 'Feud: Charles and Diana'
Ryan Murphy loves an anthology series, and with the second season of Feud, he's taking on Prince Charles and Princess Diana's divorce. Details and few and far between for the series so far, but here's what we do know about the royal drama of Feud: Charles and Diana.
IT REPORTEDLY STARTED FILMING IN THE FALL OF 2017.
Back in April of 2017, when Murphy revealed the theme of season two of Feud, he said: “We are shooting I think in the late fall and I’m casting Charles and Diana," according to Deadline. At this point, it's unclear if the ongoing legal battle over season one—Olivia de Havilland has filed a lawsuit over her portrayal in the series—will impact the timing of "Charles and Diana," or if Murphy's many other projects will push it back, but Harpers Bazaar previously reported it would premiere sometime in 2018.
THE TIMELINE OF THE SHOW WILL GO FROM THE ROYAL DIVORCE TO DIANA'S DEATH IN 1997.
"Charles and Diana’s story literally begins with filing the divorce papers," Murphy revealed. "It’s about that pain of the dissolving of a fairy tale, particularly for Diana. It starts with the filing of divorce papers and takes you up until her death."
Murphy elaborated in an interview with EW, "It’s going to be super juicy. It’s a very different kind of feud than the feud we told with Bette and Joan. It’s a love affair feud."
SUSAN SARANDON AND JESSICA LANGE WILL RETURN FOR SEASON TWO.
Sarandon and Lange, who played Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in season one, Feud: Bette and Joan, will be back. When asked if these two actresses would have roles in Charles and Diana, Murphy replied, "Always, always." At this point, it's unclear what roles they will play. Other casting details have yet to be announced.
SEASON TWO WILL HAVE TEN EPISODES.
Jon Robin Baitz (perhaps best-known for Brothers & Sisters) is co-writing the script with Murphy. Sarandon and Lange will reportedly return as executive producers.
