American Crime Story showrunner Ryan Murphy is nixing his plan to turn the fourth season’s focus on the Monica Lewinsky/President Bill Clinton sex scandal. This may be a disappointment to fans who love Murphy’s takes on ’90s true crime, but the real Lewinsky was “relieved” when she heard the FX season had been called off, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Murphy told THR that he delivered the good news to Lewinsky at a party. “I told her, ‘Nobody should tell your story but you, and it’s kind of gross if they do. If you want to produce it with me, I would love that; but you should be the producer and you should make all the goddamn money.'”
Lewinsky apparently turned down the offer because the idea for the season was scrapped. It’s unclear what sensational saga will replace it, or if Season 4 is still happening at all. FX did not respond to Newsweek‘s request
