The upcoming season follows President Bill Clinton‘s scandalous relationship with Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment that followed. While in office, President Clinton had an affair with Lewinsky who served as a White House intern from 1995-1996 in a puzzling case that shocked the country.
FX forerunner Sarah Paulson is back as Linda Tripp (a civil servant who was heavily involved in the matter). Additionally, the show stars Clive Owen as Bill Clinton, Edie Falco as Hillary Clinton and Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky. The trailer showcases the beginning of Lewinsky’s time at the White House, which was quickly muddied by relations with Bill Clinton. During this scandal, Clinton was impeached in 1998 after lying under oath about his relationship with Lewinsky. The trailer also details Tripp’s prominence in the situation as she recorded the conversations between Clinton and Lewinsky about their relationship and later gave them to the press.
Monica Lewinsky serves as an executive producer for this season in addition to Ryan Murphy, Sarah Paulson and more. Check out the trailer above.
