Trust launches March 25 on FX, but Season 2 plans are already afoot.
Billed as a limited series, Trust tracks the 1970s Italian abduction of scion J. Paul Getty III from a surprising perspective.
Speaking to Deadline, EP/screenwriter Simon Beaufoy revealed what shape Trust Season 2 would take:
“The idea is to go back to the 1930s to discover how John Paul Getty I became this extraordinary person with this huge hole in his soul.”
His mother was interesting. The trust is the Sarah C. Getty Trust, so to be in charge of all those billions as a woman in the 30s, 40s, 50s, she was the power in that family.”
FX has yet to ‘announce’ Trust Season 2, but an optimistic Beaufoy confirms talks are already in motion:
“It’s all ongoing [FX ] is “very happy” with the first season, he said, adding, “and I’d love to do” a second season.
Stay tuned as we continue to watch the renew/cancel status of Trust Season 2…
