What do you think? Do you like the Fargo TV series? FX is calling it a “limited series.” Do you think it should end or be renewed for another season with a new cast and characters?

    MUST SEE MORE!! I didn’t actually know there was a Fargo TV series until the night of the Emmy awards (August 25th 2014). I looked it up on the net and began binge watching. So far, I love what I see. It closely matches the crazyness of the Movie Fargo. I grew up in South Dakota and can relate to the ‘You Betha” dialog which is common back there. The dialog is slightly overdone but I love it just the same… Please, FX….continue this series and keep as many of the same characters as you can. This time you should promote the show a little more so guys like me know it’s out there, ok?

    My husband & I love this adaptation of the movie and yes please do continue the series! As a former Minnesotian I love it!

  3. Melanie says

    Must continue!!!! A very different kind of show but it grabs you and won’t let go. The characters make the show so definitely keep them around.

  4. Steve Atcher says

    Love this show. Now they should move on with the same cast of characters and have Molly take on new investigations of the same high-caliber nature, perhaps connected to revenge sought by the crime syndicate.

    Love this show!!! Great characters, lots of twists and turns!! I love anything associated with the Coehn brothers!!

  6. tom says

    There are still some loose ends to tie up and certainly enough possible tangents to keep this going for another season and beyond. I hope it continues!

    Amazing show – there is nothing like it on TV — creative
    writing – keeps you on the edge of your seat and the
    acting — cant get any better.

    Hate that the series may never even be a series. It was simply a great production and
    would be destined to become the best ever made … Even to the point of surpassing Breaking Bad.

  9. Leslie says

    This was an incredibly intelligent show. Each episode was so intense and you actually cared about each character. I hope Fargo continues with a new case. Bravo to the writers and actors.

  10. Catherine says

    Absolutely well done show! I really enjoyed it and all of the actors in it. This last episode aired on 6/16 seemed to have concluded the series. It was an exciting and interesting episode. If the series is renewed I would be interested in seeing just how the writers would do it and what ‘totally fresh’ take they would pursue….since there is no ‘going back’.

      The fact that the storyline was wraped up was wonderful. There are too many series that should have be miniseries (Revenge, Lost, Once Upon a Time) but limp along for season after season and becoming a bore. This was just about perfect. I certainly would love to see Molly, Gus, and Lou back with a new mystery to solve (including what happened to Lou in 1974). I, however, am sad that the FBI agents won’t be back they had great potential as characters.

    Please find a way to continue the show. Hate they killed off Billy Bob’s character but love the remaining cast and would like to see a Season 2.

    Absolutely a great series- you didn’t know what to expect every week and that’s what makes great TV. the characters were priceless – please bring it back to another small town in Minnesota – thanks!
