    The show’s new season is expected to “explore the overlooked dimensions of the women who found themselves caught up in the scandal and political war that cast a long shadow over the Clinton presidency," says FX’s CEO.

    The upcoming third season of FX’s “American Crime Story” series is to be produced by none other than Monica Lewinsky, and will delve into her 1990s affair with then-President Bill Clinton.

    According to the Hollywood Reporter, the season is titled “Impeachment” and is scheduled to premiere on 27 September, 2020, mere weeks before the upcoming US presidential election.

    "This franchise re-examines some of the most complicated, polarising stories in recent history in a way that is relevant, nuanced and entertaining", FX CEO John Landgraf said. "Impeachment: American Crime Story will explore the overlooked dimensions of the women who found themselves caught up in the scandal and political war that cast a long shadow over the Clinton presidency," he added.

    But some social media users were not particularly thrilled by the show's apparent agenda.

    Some remarked that they would prefer a show focusing on Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein.

    And others jokingly wondered how people related to the scandal might react.

    The Clinton-Lewinsky scandal erupted in 1998, when reports surfaced suggesting that Clinton enjoyed an intimate extramarital relationship with the attractive White House intern.

    The resulting scandal led to Bill Clinton being impeached by the US House of Representatives in December 1998, but a subsequent trial acquitted the president, allowing him to remain in office.
