Feud: It Looks Like That Charles and Diana Season Might Not Happen After All

"We didn't feel we had the material right"

Feud: Bette And Joanmay have brought life and color to the epic grudge between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, but the second installment of the FX anthology series, centered on Prince Charles and Princess Diana, is currently circling the drain.

Ryan Murphy first announced his plans to center the second season around the former royal couple in the spring of 2017. It was reportedly going to cover the time period between their divorce and Diana's sudden death. Now it sounds like the project has stalled out completely at FX.

"As far as I know, it's not active right now," FX CEO John Landgraf told The Hollywood Reporter. "We did [have it cast], but we decided we didn't feel we had the material right and decided not to move forward with it."

Matthew Goode (Downton Abbey) and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) were said to have been cast as Charles and Diana, though those casting rumors were never confirmed.

Landgraf seemed confident that a second installment of Feud would still happen. However, he had no updates from Murphy regarding a possible topic or when it would air. There's also the possibility that Murphy's new deal with Netflix could cause future seasons of Feud to stall out permanently.

Additionally, American Crime Story: Katrina has also been delayed (again), with Entertainment Weekly citing script changes as the cause.
