FX finally revealed a premiere date for the second season of Ryan Murphy’s true crime anthology. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story will begin its delicious run on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.

Based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth, the second season of ACS will explore the shocking assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion. He was the fifth and final victim of serial killer Andrew Cunanan.

The star-studded cast includes Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace, Darren Criss as Andrew Cunanan, Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace, Ricky Martin as Antonio D’Amico, Max Greenfield and Annaleigh Ashford.

The new season certainly has a lot to live up to. The People v. O. J. Simpson was a critical and ratings hit. It scored 22 Emmy nominations and walked way with nine statues including Outstanding Limited Series.

The network just released a new promo featuring Ramirez lounging by the pool while Criss emerges from the water behind him. Check it out below.
