The first season of ‘Feud’ hasn’t premiered yet, but it’s already been picked up for a second season, FX announced on Feb. 28. And the theme is going to be royally incredible.
Counting down until FEUD: Bette & Joan, the story of Bette Davis VS. Joan Crawford? Well, get used to the feuding — season two will debut in 2018 and will be set around Prince Charles and Princess Diana. The show has already gotten a 10-episode order. The show will be written by Ryan Murphy and Jon Rabin Baitz; Jon is a consulting producer on FX’s Katrina: American Crime Story and created ABC’s Brothers & Sisters.
The show will focus on Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana’s marriage and divorce — a story we’ve seen multiple times in films. Of course, they married when in July 1981, when she had just turned 20; he was 32. The wedding was broadcast and the world was extremely invested in them as a couple.
A year after their marriage they welcomed their first son, Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, and then two years after that, they welcomed Prince Henry Charles Albert David. Diana worked with multiple charities, had a strong interest in fashion, and had many different interests than the Price. There were reports of infidelities over the years by both sides of the family, and she struggled with depression and reportedly, bulimia. They separated in December 1992 and the divorce was finalized in 1996.
So, who will play them? Let the hopes and wishes begin! In the meantime, FEUD: Bette & Joan premieres this Sunday, March 5 at 9PM ET on FX.
