Sometimes, lightning does strike twice.
Fargo Season 2 is every bit as fantastic as Fargo Season 1, and like us, FX believes a third installment of the series will only continue that tradition. Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions announced the renewal news today.
"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."
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.
Fargo Season 2, 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.
