The network already has placed a 10-episode order for the second installment, titled Feud: Charles and Diana, slated to debut in 2018, according to a statement from FX.

The upcoming series will focus on the royal problems of Princess Diana’s tumultuous marriage to Prince Charles and her resulting rocky relationship with the entire British royal family. The order is for ten episodes, two more than Feud: Bette and Joan’s eight.

The first installment, Feud: Bette and Joan, premieres this Sunday on FX. It focuses on the rivalry between iconic Hollywood actresses Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) and Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) on the set of their 1962 horror film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? with co-stars Alfred Molina and Stanley Tucci.

Murphy and Jon Robin Baitz will write Feud: Charles and Diana and serve as executive producers. Dede Gardner, Plan B Entertainment and Alexis Martin Woodall are Executive Producers. The limited series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.
