After the successful season 1 of "American Crime Story," the hit show was renewed for a third season. According to reports, after Season 1 focused on the case of O.J. Simpson and season 2 will be focusing on Hurricane Katrina, "American Crime Story" Season 3 will now be focusing on the famed fashion designer, Gianni Versace.

The FX hit series will be centering on the tragic death of the well-known designer, CNN reported. Ryan Murphy announced the subject of the third season of the series after "American Crime Story" Season 1 picked up a lot of Emmy awards.

"American Crime" Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes and it will talk about Versace being shot to death on the steps of his Miami Beach villa in 1997. His murder then led to a big manhunt for the killer, identified as Andrew Cunanan. Police officials also believed that Cunanan was linked to the deaths of four other people during a cross-country shooting spree that took place for several months.

The attacker was never arrested because Cunanan committed suicide a week after he shot Versace to death. Cunanan will be the major character in the third season of "American Crime Story." "American Crime Story" Season 3 will be based on the book of Maureen Orth, "Vulgar Favors."

Rolling Stone also reported that "American Crime Story" Season 3 will attempt to show a psychological portrait of the alleged attacker. "American Crime Story" Season 3 will start production by next year after Season 2 will air.

"American Crime Story" Season 2 is based on the book, "The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast." Murphy is said to direct the first episodes for both "American Crime Story" Season 2 and 3. It remains unclear, however, who will be the actors for "American Crime Story" Season 3.
