The New Feud Is About Princess Di & Prince Charles, And We Can’t Wait

Share

Like most people of a certain generation, we have never gotten over our adoration of the imperfectly perfect Princess Diana. And while we would like to be better than watching a TV show that rehashes the dissolution of her marriage to Prince Charles, we have to admit, now that one such show is actually happening, that we are, decidedly, not. On the contrary, we can’t wait for the second season of Feud, which promises to feature the conflict between the late Princess and her eventually estranged royal husband. Creator Ryan Murphy divulged new details at a recent FX channel event: “Charles’ and Diana’s story literally begins with filing the divorce papers,” he said. “It’s about that pain of the dissolving of a fairy tale, particularly for Diana. It starts with the filing of divorce papers and takes you up until her death.”

If you’ve been watching the first season of the show, which features the rivalry between Old Hollywood stars Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, you know that this tale is in good hands and will be well-researched. It will depict characters that are three-dimensional, and it will not be salacious just for the sake of being so. No further details have been released about Feud’s second season, but we’ll be keeping you updated as we learn more. The final episode of Feud‘s first season aired Sunday, April 23.
