After an amazing debut season of Ryan Murphy's latest series, American Crime Story, the anthology series master has already earmarked future seasons of the show to revolve around Hurricane Katrina and the murder of Gianni Versace. And now it looks like Murphy might even have the fourth season of the show locked down to tell the story of Monica Lewinsky.
Despite the fact that we have to wait until 2018 for the second season of American Crime Story, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Murphy and his producers have optioned Jeffrey Toobin's 2000 best-selling book, A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President to act as the basis of a future season. Keen American Crime Story fans will also know that Toobin's book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson served as the source material for Season 1, with Toobin himself acting as a writing consultant.

Despite Seasons 2 and 3 still currently filming, THR reports that Murphy is "fast tracking the drama" by starting the casting process for both Lewinsky and Linda Tripp. Given that its expected that American Crime Story Season 3 (the murder of Gianni Versace) is expected to premiere six months after Season 2 (Hurricane Katrina) in 2018, it seems that although the casting process for the Monica Lewinsky season is being fast tracked, we can probably expect to wait until 2019 until it airs.
Meanwhile Murphy's upcoming anthology series Feud, focussing on the relationship between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, will premiere on March 5, and American Horror Story will most likely return in October for Season 7.
