A love letter to Hollywood is coming our way, and it will include Darren Criss.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story actor will be teaming up with Ryan Murphy for a third time as the latter brings his new series Hollywood to Netflix.

“Honored to say that I’m heading back to the House of Murphy where I’ll be starring in but also executive producing HOLLYWOOD with Time’s King of Television,” wrote Criss in an Instagram post.

“Late last year, [Ryan Murphy] and I had dinner where he shared that he wanted to do a period piece that was young and optimistic. We landed on the idea of a series covering several narratives from 1940s Hollywood. We both left that evening feeling super excited about its potential. Two days later Netflix bought it. Not only is that a testament to the magic of Ryan Murphy, it’s a reminder of the kind of thing that can only happen in Hollywood… literally. Limited Series coming to [Netflix] May 2020.”

While Criss’s casting has been confirmed, Holland Taylor and Patti LuPone are also rumored to star.
