It’s going to be a while before we get more Fargo — and possibly never.
Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley told fans at the ATX Television Festival in Austin on Friday that he doesn’t have an idea for a fourth season of the anthology drama and might not ever have one.
“I wasn’t sure if there would be a second season. I wasn’t sure if there would be a third season. At end of season 1, [FX] said, ‘If you want to leave it there [that would be fine],'” Hawley said. “There’s only a certain amount of storytelling you can tell in that vein. And I love telling stories in this vein, but I don’t have another one yet. So watch the 10th hour [of season 3] because it might be the last.”
The statement comes on the heels of FX CEO John Landgraf likewise suggesting this could mark the Emmy-winning drama’s final round.
Fargo airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
