Some things just go well together. Lifetime and famous murderers? That’s a winning combination.

Following the success of last year’s TV movie Lizzie Borden Took an Ax, the cable network will debut its limited series The Lizzie Borden Chronicles in April — now with two additional episodes, the network announced Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena.

Christina Ricci once again will star as Borden, the real-life woman who was tried (and acquitted) in 1892 of murdering her father and stepmother.

“It’s a fictionalized version of what happens after the trial, as she continues to misbehave,” Ricci said of the eight-hour series. “This is an imagining of what could have happened.”

So, how did Ricci prepare to inhabit such a dark role once more? Easy: It was fun.

“I never expected to play her again, but she’s really fun in this interpretation,” Ricci said. “This version of her is actually a lot more satisfying. She has a sense of self-awareness. But at the same time, we do deal with the complexities and emotions behind what created this monster.”
