Let’s backtrack a little bit before we start getting into possible New Girl implications. American Crime Story executive producer Ryan Murphy was the first to confirm on his Instagram page that Greenfield would be appearing in the show, as he shared a first-look photo alongside one of his stars for the limited series in Darren Criss. There is no word at present regarding who we could end up seeing Greenfield play, but they likely have some sort of connection with Criss’ Andrew Cunanan. The story of season 3 revolves around the murder of Gianni Versace, and it feels far more in the mold of the show than the upcoming Katrina: American Crime Story, which is based on a natural disaster and a government meltdown over the handling of it.
Side note for a moment: Does anyone else find it odd that we’ve actually heard a whole lot more about the third season of this franchise than we have the second? We don’t know why that is, but it’s an interesting trend. In general, the Katrina series has been under wraps for a long time, even if we did first hear about it a good year ago.
Let’s get back now to the subject of New Girl and what this new role from Greenfield could end up meaning in terms of the future of the long-running comedy. Specifically, we don’t think that there is all that much to worry about at the moment when it comes to it. We definitely do understand why you would be afraid that Max doing this show would in some way impede on his ability to be on the other show, but the thing that you have to remember is that if New Girl is renewed, it won’t premiere for a long while and wouldn’t start filming until later this summer. Basically, there should be a good chance for both of these shows to exist and for Max to appear extensively in both.
Now that we’ve said that, we don’t know how many episodes of Crime Story he will be a part of; he was a part of American Horror Story season 5, but his role was fairly minimal in the end.
