Are you ready for another ride on the Fargo merry-go-round? FX Networks CEO John Landgraf hopes the fourth season of the Fargo TV series will debut in 2019. Although there has been no official renewal, Landgraf has made no secret of the fact that FX wants another season. At first, showrunner Noah Hawley sounded uncertain that it would happen, but later clarified that the media shouldn’t report the series would end with season three, which aired on FX between April and June of 2017.
An FX crime drama anthology, Fargo season three stars Ewan McGregor as Emmit and Ray Stussy, with Carrie Coon, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Thewlis, Goran Bogdan, Andy Yu, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jim Gaffigan, and Scoot McNairy. Set in 2010, it centers on the sibling rivalry between Emmit, the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota,” and his younger brother Ray, a parole officer. Season one starred Billy Bob Thornton, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, and Martin Freeman, with Kirsten Dunst, Patrick Wilson, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart, and Ted Danson taking the lead in the second outing.
Fargo Season Four Expected on FX in 2019
“Fargo is not gone,” FX boss John Landgraf assured during the network’s winter TCA executive session this morning in Pasadena
The CEO said creator Noah Hawley “has an idea which excites me enormously for a fourth cycle. The plan is to have that ready for 2019. I’m focused on what will come in 2018, but our anticipation is that there’s another cycle in 2019.”
Here’s Variety‘s take:
Landgraf said that he has spoken with series creator Noah Hawley and that Hawley has an idea for a new installment of the critically-acclaimed show. But given Hawley’s busy schedule, which includes working on a Doctor Doom movie, the new season would likely not air until next year. In addition, Hawley’s “Legion” will return to FX for a second season later this year. Back in the summer, Landgraf said he had not yet heard an idea for the fourth season.
There’s no news yet, as to what year Fargo season four will be set in, or who will star. When we know more, you will, too.
