Initially, and we started in 2017, the fourth season of American Crime Story was supposed to deal with the scandal related to Monica Lewinski. As we have been able to see, however, things have changed over the years, and in fact, Impeachment has become the third instalment of the anthology series.
In June 2021, speaking with Deadline, Ryan Murphy then began to fear the idea of dedicating season 4 of American Crime Story to the rise and fall of Studio 54, a well-known New York club in the late 1970s founded by Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager. Two months later, FX has formalized the start of work on the new chapter.
Here’s the official synopsis of Season 4:
“Studio 54: American Crime Story will tell the story of Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, who in 1977 turned their Midtown Manhattan disco into an international mecca of nightlife for the rich and famous and commoners alike — renowned for its lavish parties, music, sex and open drug use. With Rubell and Schrager’s meteoric rise came their epic fall less than three years later when the impresarios were convicted of tax fraud.”
The story will tell how Studio 54 became the nightlife centre for the rich, the famous and even the common people, renowned for its glitzy parties, music, sex and free drug use. However, as quickly as Rubell and Schrager managed to achieve success, defeat ensued following allegations of tax fraud. In 1980 the couple ended up in prison, and the venue was later sold.
