A 4th season of the crime anthology series Fargo is reportedly in development.
In an interview with the Television Critics Association, FX chairman John Landgraf confirmed that series creator Noah Hawley was working on a new season and that it’s expected to air in 2019.
“It’s not gone. Noah Hawley, who has become quite a busy bee… has told us that he has an idea that excited me enormously for a fourth cycle of Fargo and the plan is to have that ready in 2019. The anticipation is there will be another cycle of Fargo in 2019.”
It was previously thought that last year’s 3rd season would be the last we saw of Fargo, but the popularity of the show appears to have spurred on work for a follow-up.
Fargo is an anthology crime series set in the same world as the 1996 film of the same name, with each season telling a new darkly funny noir story in the frozen tundras of Minnesota and the Canadian border.
Season 3 starred Ewan McGregor as two twin brothers as well as Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon and David Thewlis.
The season was critically acclaimed, with McGregor winning a Golden Globe award for his portrayal of both Ray and Emmit Stussy.
If the 2019 release date turns out to be correct, Fargo will be part of a bumper year for TV, with the final season of Game of Thrones set to air as well as the 3rd season of Netflix hit Stranger Things.
You can catch the first 2 seasons of Fargo on Netflix right now.
