FARGO Renewed for a Third Season

FX has ordered a third installment of Fargo, it was announced today by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions.

“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,” Schrier said. “Our thanks to Noah, Warren, Joel & Ethan, John and our partners at MGM Television for making Fargo such a memorable and rewarding journey.”

Emmy Award winning Executive Producers Noah Hawley, Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and John Cameron will all return for the new installment. 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, and it also scored 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and has the highest average critics’ rating of any show on TV this year with 9.1 out of 10.

The first installment of Fargo garnered universal critical acclaim and won three Emmy awards, including Outstanding Miniseries, two Golden Globe awards, including Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, and a Peabody Award.

The second installment of Fargo, currently airing on FX, 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.
