Feud: Capote vs. The Swans: preview

Ryan Murphy’s award-winning anthology series features a to-die-for cast comprised of Naomi Watts, Demi Moore, Calista Flockhart, Molly Ringwald and Chloë Sevigny. The eight-part FX series finds renowned author Truman Capote (Tom Hollander) betraying the trust of his high society chums – a decision that he soon comes to regret. Read below for how to watch Feud: Capote vs. The Swans online from anywhere now.

Debuting way back in 2017, anthology series Feud – created by Murphy, Jaffe Cohen, and Michael Zam – got off to an explosive start with Feud: Bette and Joan. Starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as Hollywood legends Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, it was a fascinating depiction of their vitriolic relationship, begrudging professional respect, and dual mistreatment by the Hollywood machine.

A confounding 7 years passed without a follow-up. But now the wait is finally over. Fans of TV dramas in which an A-list cast brings the bitter rivalries of rich and famous celebrities to life will be on cloud nine watching Capote vs. The Swans.

Based on the bestselling book Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era by Laurence Leamer, Feud’s sophomore season charts Capote’s scandalous treatment of his New York socialite friends, affectionately dubbed the “swans.” Acting as chief confessor and confidante, he exposed their private lives in his thinly fictionalised "La Côte Basque 1965.” Incandescent with rage, they subsequently cast him out from the high society circles he craved.

Written by Jon Robin Baitz and directed by the likes of indie auteur Gus Van Sant (Milk, Good Will Hunting) and Jennifer Lynch, Feud promises to be a compelling portrait of wealth, revenge, and a celebrated author's tragic fall from grace.

Our guide below explains how to watch Capote vs. The Swans online now and from anywhere in the world.

The first two episodes of Feud: Capote vs. The Swans will air back-to-back on the FX channel on Wednesday, January 31 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT. There are 8 episodes in total, with the remainder being broadcast one per week up until the finale on March 13.

If you already have FX then you're all set. But if you're a cord-cutter, we recommend Sling TV – specifically the Sling Blue package which includes FX. This currently costs $45 per month, though there are often money-saving introductory offers available.

Hulu subscribers can also watch FX live with a Hulu with Live TV plan (at $76.99 per month), or catch episodes the following day with Hulu’s on-demand only service which starts at $7.99/month. There are a few Hulu plans and prices to choose from. However, only the basic plan provides a whopping 30-day Hulu free trial.
