FX is officially set for Fargo season three!
FX has ordered a third installment of the Emmy, Golden Globe, AFI and Peabody award-winning limited series Fargo from creator Noah Hawley. Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, made the Fargo season three announcement this morning.
The second installment of Fargo currently ranks as the most critically-acclaimed television of 2015 according to Metacritic with a score of 96 out of 100. Fargo season two also scored 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and had the highest average critics rating of any show on TV this year with 9.1 out of 10.
“Year two of ‘Fargo’ is an extraordinary achievement and, given Noah Hawley’s masterful storytelling, we can’t wait to see where the third, all-new version of ‘Fargo’ takes us,” says Schrier. “Our thanks to Noah, Warren, Joel & Ethan, John and our partners at MGM Television for making Fargo such a memorable and rewarding journey.”
The second installment of Fargo, currently airing on FX, takes the story back to 1979 and follows a young State Trooper (Patrick Wilson) and his Sheriff father-in-law (Ted Danson) as they investigate a grisly case involving a local crime family and a major mob syndicate, and a small town beautician (Kirsten Dunst) and her husband (Jesse Plemons) who inadvertently get caught in the middle.
Fargo season two continues tonight with an all-new episode wherein Lou and Hank investigate in Fargo, The King of Breakfast visits Betsy and Molly, Floyd is summoned away and Bear questions a family member’s loyalty. Written by Noah Hawley and Matt Wolpert & Ben Nedivi, episode 2×07 is directed by Keith Gordon.
Emmy Award-winning Executive Producers Noah Hawley, Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and John Cameron will all return for Fargo season three. Fargo season three will be produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio.
