Drama and backstabbing await you in Feud: Capote vs. The Swans, the highly anticipated second installment of Ryan Murphy’s Emmy-winning anthology series. Settle in as this tumultuous season premieres Wednesday (Jan. 31) at 10 p.m. ET on FX and the next day on Hulu, and there are a few streaming options for cord cutters to choose from.
Just like the first season — which focused on Bette Davis and Joan Crawford — the drama will delve into another very real, rocky relationship. Except this time it won’t be centered on two actresses; season 2 will be an adaptation of the nonfiction book Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era by Laurence Leamer.
From the first episode, you’ll be transported to 1970s high-society Manhattan when author Truman Capote (Tom Hollander) was at the height of his career after publishing In Cold Blood. At the time, he considered his closest friends to be some of New York City’s wealthiest women, whom he called “the swans.” With high society at his fingertips, he quickly becomes the swans’ confidante, but he ultimately betrays them in 1975 when he publishes a scandalous short story titled La Côte Basque, 1965, exposing some of his friends’ innermost secrets to the world. Not only will you be given a look into the lead-up to his publishing, but the aftermath and ultimately the events leading to Capote’s death in 1984.
Starring alongside Hollander is Naomi Watts, Diane Lane, Chloë Sevigny, Calista Flockhart, Demi Moore, Molly Ringwald, Treat Williams, Joe Mantello and Russell Tovey.
