American Crime Story's third season will hit US screens this autumn, it's been confirmed.

Reported by TVLine, Impeachment's official premiere date is Tuesday, September 7, with no word as of yet on a UK broadcaster.

Chronicling President Bill Clinton's '90s scandal, the latest series from TV lord Ryan Murphy features a selection of powerhouse performers, including Clive Owen, Sarah Paulson and Edie Falco.

Impeachment's synopsis teases a dramatic take on "the national crisis that swept up Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp as principal characters in the country's first impeachment proceedings in over a century".

Falco – widely recognised for her role as Carmela Soprano in The Sopranos – plays Hilary Clinton, whilst Owen (Lisey's Story) appears as Bill Clinton; Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart) is Lewinsky; Paulson is Tripp; Betty Gilpin (GLOW) is Ann Coulter; Billy Eichner (The Lion King) is Matt Drudge and Annaleigh Ashford (Masters of Sex) steps into the shoes of Jones.

Previously addressing the project, Paulson reflected on not being able to meet the real whistleblower she's portraying on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"I don't know if I ever would have met Linda or if Linda would have even been open to doing anything like that, but I got as many text messages when she passed away as if I had died," she shared.

"It was weird because I have been spending so much time reading all these books and working with a dialect coach. I was immersed in this and it was a very wild thing. It really did make me sad."

Impeachment: American Crime Story premieres on FX in the US this September.
