While this is hardly a secret, it may be music to many fans’ ears right now: “American Crime Story” of course will be coming back, and the second season will be about Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.
As reported from BuzzFeed’s Jarrett Wieselman while at the Fox upfront (see tweet below), there was a poster present at the event bearing the show’s title.
Do we think that this really is the right move for the show’s second season? We’re somewhat skeptical. While we understand creator Ryan Murphy’s position that in many ways what happened to the people of New Orleans was criminal, we’d rather see the show come back with some sort of true-crime angle similar to “The People v. OJ Simpson.” You’re going to be hard-pressed to find a case that captured the attention of the public quite like that one, but you could look at cases with huge historical significance, or ones that at least created a lot of buzz and drama.
While there was a poster for the show at the upfronts for Fox, don’t take this as any sort of serious sign that season 2 is coming anytime soon. We haven’t really heard anything when it comes to casting or story specifics, so we figure it will be next year at the earliest before this show comes on the air. We certainly wouldn’t mind if FX just took their time to get this right rather than rushing a story along. This is a move that was done with “Fargo,” and it feels pretty clear that this turned out to be a huge success for the network.
