Starring Penélope Cruz, Darren Criss, Finn Wittrock, and Annaleigh Ashford, the show’s first trailer has been released on FX, teasing the scandalous story.
Edgar Ramirez plays the titular fashion designer, who was assassinated by Andrew Cunanan (Criss) during the serial killer’s 1997 murder spree.
The series looks set to include other murders committed by Cunanan during that three-month period, including Chicago tycoon Lee Miglin. Oscar-winner Cruz will Donatella Versace — Gianni’s brother — sporting a blonde wig in the trailer.
While the series has yet to be released — coming to the American network FX on 17 January — the third series of American Crime Story has already been announced.
Giving the simple subtitle Katrina, the series will focus on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and features Sarah Paulson and Lady Gaga.
