FX will no longer push forward with its efforts to tell the story of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, FX CEO John Landgraf told the outlet “as far as I know, it is not active at this time.”

In the series ‘ second season, which was already released, it was given the greenlight in February 2017 and was expected to star Matthew Goode and Rosamund Pike as Charles and Diana.

Landgraf explained that the reason the network pulled the plug on the series, it was not the feeling of the material was suitable for the production.

“We’ve [the cast], but we decided that we didn’t feel we had the substantive law and decided not to continue with it,” Landgraf told THR.

Showrunner Ryan Murphy was scheduled to return and co-write the follow-up to the “Feud: Bette and Joan” along with the executive producers, Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon.

According to the oulet, Murphy spoke in 2017 about the prospect of the development of the story is centered on Charles and Diana and drummed up intrigue during the discussion on the drama of the season would entail.

“With a show called ‘Feud’ is interesting, because … feuds are about pain,” Murphy said in April 2017. “So, Charles and Diana’s story literally begins with the filing of the divorce papers. And about the pain, the resolve of a fairy tale, in particular for Diana. It begins with the filing of the divorce papers and will take you up to her death,” he said.

Although the Charles and Diana story is not likely to be told by FX, Landgraf is hopeful that Murphy will provide a different topic on the network in the future.

“I hope so; I think that Ryan would still be of the opinion that it is an active show, but he has not yet told me what the next cycle is and if he is going to make and that is really in his camp,” he said.
