Fire up those DVRs, true-crime fans: American Crime Story is back. And this time, fashionistas should be ready, too.

The second installment of Ryan Murphy's anthology series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on FX. The show revists the shocking, headline-grabbing July 1997 murder of renowned designer Gianni Versace, but also digs into the life of Andrew Cunanan, the man who pulled the trigger. It stars Edgar Ramírez as Versace, Darren Criss as Cunanan and Penélope Cruz as Gianni's sister Donatella.

Before the first episode premiered in LA, Versace's family claimed the show is a "work of fiction." But if The People Vs OJ Simpson, the previous installment of American Crime Story, is any indication, The Assassination of Gianni Versace will be entertaining, must-watch television nonetheless.

Also entertaining: the host of other primetime shows, new and old, set to debut or return from mid-season breaks this week. Here's the schedule.
