Feud season 2: Creator drops huge spoiler about Charles and Diana marriage split story
RYAN MURPHY has revealed details about season two of Feud, which will chronicle Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s messy split.
The second series was renewed by network FX days before the first series, Feud: Bette and Joan, had been aired.
Season one centred on the backstage battle between screen legends Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.
Speaking at an Emmy event, creator Murphy, who also wrote and produced Glee, American Horror Story and American Crime Story, explained what viewers could expect from the next instalment.
“The next one is about Charles and Diana,” he confirmed (via Deadline). “We are shooting I think in the late fall and I’m casting Charles and Diana.”
The finale of Feud: Bette and Joan, is set to take air in the United States tomorrow night, starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange as the warring actresses, and Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland.
“I think having a show called Feud is interesting because I love when Cathy (Zeta-Jones) says feuds are about pain,” Murphy continued. “So Charles and Diana’s story literally begins with filing the divorce papers.
“It’s about that pain of the dissolving of a fairytale, particularly for Diana. It starts with the filing of divorce papers and takes you up until her death.”
Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 before the Princess of Wales died in a car crash one year later.
It is thought the 10 episode series will air in 2018, with Murphy remaining tight-lipped on who will play the People’s Princess.
“It’s become like the Scarlett O’Hara of parts,” he added.
“Because there are so many women who want to play that part, and there are so many women who are physically right for it.”
