The second installment of FX’s highly acclaimed American Crime Story, which won nine Emmys at this year’s ceremony, hasn’t even aired yet, but EW has confirmed the network has already ordered a third season to focus on the 1997 murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.

The third installment will be titled Versace/Cunanan: American Crime Story and based on the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth.   

The talented designer behind the same-named fashion house, Versace was shot by killer Andrew Cunanan outside the steps of his Miami home. Cunanan later died by suicide before police could figure out a motive for Versace’s death. 

The Versace story is expected to air after season 2’s Katrina: American Crime Story, which is scheduled to premiere in 2017.
