Will 'Feud' Season 3 Center On a Gay Rivalry?
Another day, another bit of news from the Ryan Murphy universe.
It was reported Wednesday that the producers of "Feud" have already nailed down a subject for the FX anthology's third season. The info came during an early screening of the "Feud: Bette and Joan" season finale from co-showrunner Tim Minear.
Minear said he knew what "Feud" Season 3 would be about but refused to spill the beans. Nevertheless, Murphy opened up a bit about the idea during a Q&A session after a screening of the finale at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall in New York City, Vanity Fair reports.
He explained Season 1 is a female-on-female rivalry and that Season 2, which will be about Prince Charles and Princess Diana, is a male-on-female feud. For the third season, the producer enlisted actor Mark Ruffalo to brainstorm about an LGBT-centric topic that could possibly be a man-on-man battle.
"I have one good idea, but I have to get the right actors," Murphy said, according to Vanity Fair. "It's something Mark Ruffalo and I had talked about hearing. He's a buddy of mine from [the HBO film] 'The Normal Heart,' so we talked about something, but I don't know yet. I haven't locked into it."
He went on to say:
"Well, one of the characters is gay."
Murphy remained coy about further details. (It should be noted "Feud" has only been greenlit for a second season.) Vanity Fair points out Murphy and Co. won't start production on "Feud" Season 3 for another year-and-a-half. Murphy has a lot going on at the moment: Besides the second season of "Feud," the writer/director is currently working on two upcoming installments of "American Crime Story," a new season of "American Horror Story" and a new drama series called "Pose."
