No other cast members has been announced for the third season of "American Crime Story," but the series creator Ryan Murphy denied the rumored casting of Lady Gaga to portray the role of Versace's sister Donatella in the series in a previous interview with the Variety.

According to Murphy, the project could take at least five months to produce. It will also take them in various locations around the world. This will be a conflict in the singer-actress' schedule.

The Versace edition of "American Crime Story" is staed to air on FX six months after season 2 airs in 2018. The second season will reportedly center on the events that happened during the Hurricane Katrina disaster in 2005.

Meanwhile, Ryan Murphy also confirmed in an interview with E! News that the fourth season of "American Crime Story" will feature the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal. He also revealed that Sarah Paulson will be included in the cast, but she will not portray the role of Hillary Clinton in the series.

More details about "American Crime Story" are expected to be revealed by FX in the coming days.
