During the panel, Ryan shared details on why the show will be make an impact on viewers.

“We’re trying to talk about a crime within a social idea,” Ryan said. “Versace, who was [Andrew Cunanan's] last victim, did not have to die. One of the reasons he was able to make his way across the country and pick off these victims, many of whom were gay, was because of homophobia at the time.”

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres in January 2018.

Ryan Murphy's 'American Crime Story: Katrina' is Currently 'Stalled'

It’s beginning to sound like we may never get to see American Crime Story: Katrina, the planned second season of the Ryan Murphy anthology series.

The season was supposed to air in the beginning of 2018 followed by the third season, focusing on the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.

Despite several of the key roles being cast months ago with Dennis Quaid, Annette Bening, and Matthew Broderick all attached to star, the show has not yet begun production. The Versace season instead will air in the beginning of 2018 and it is expected that Katrina will air later the year.

Now, director Anthony Hemingway, who worked on the first season of the anthology series and was slated to work on Katrina, says he’s not sure what will happen.

“That just kind of got stalled,” he told THR. “We’re all standing by waiting to find out what’s happening.”

“Nothing has really been done. We haven’t started prep on it at all,” he added. When asked if there is a chance the season won’t happen he said, “Who knows. It’s all up to Ryan Murphy.”

Olivia de Havilland Sues Ryan Murphy & FX Over 'Feud' Portrayal

Olivia de Havilland is suing FX and Feud: Bette and Joan executive producer Ryan Murphy over the way they portrayed her on the limited series.

The legendary actress, who celebrates her 101st birthday on Saturday (July 1), was played by fellow Oscar-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones on the series.

Olivia says that she has a reputation for not gossiping or expressing an unkind behavior, but she was portrayed in the opposite way on Feud. She also says that she was not asked to give permission to use her likeness on the show.

“[A]ll statements made by Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland in this fake interview are completely false, some inherently so; others false because they were never said,” de Havilland‘s lawyer writes in the complaint (via THR). “FX defendants did not engage in protected First Amendment speech in putting false words into the mouth of Olivia de Havilland in a fake interview that did not occur and would not have occurred.”

“Zeta-Jones’ de Havilland refers to Joan Fontaine as her ‘bitch sister,’ an offensive term that stands in stark contrast with Olivia de Havilland’s reputation for good manners, class and kindness,” the complaint adds.

Olivia says no one contacted her about the show, despite her being the only living person who experienced the events depicted in the show. A couple months ago, she explained why she would not watch the series.

American Crime Story's 'Versace' Season to Air Before 'Katrina'

The Hurricane Katrina-themed season of American Crime Story was expected to be the anthology series’ next season, but FX has announced that the installment has been pushed to late 2018.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace, starring Edgar Ramirez, Darren Criss, and Penelope Cruz, will now be the second season of the series.

The Versace season will air in early 2018 and the Katrina season, starring Annette Bening, Sarah Paulson, Matthew Broderick, and more, will air later that year.

Ryan Murphy is executive producing both seasons. The People v. O.J. Simpson, the first part of the anthology series, picked up nine Emmy Awards last year.
