There is more FARGO to come on FX, according to network boss John Landgraf and show creator Noah Hawley.
The two both gave updates on a potential fourth season of the anthology series, which is based on the Coen brothers’ film of the same name.
“Fargo is not gone,” Landgraf said during his executive panel Friday at the Television Critics’ Association’s winter press tour. “Noah Hawley, who has become quite the busy bee… has told us that he has an idea – which excites me enormously – for a fourth cycle of Fargo. The plan is to have that ready for 2019.”
Later, during the Legion panel, Hawley remained mum on any details for a potential fourth season, but revealed the next iteration of his Fargo is a book, published through Grand Central.
“The next thing you see of Fargo is going to be a book that looks at the three seasons, with scripts and interviews and everything,” he said. “We’re working on that now and hopefully that will come out before the fourth year.”
Meanwhile, Hawley is hard at work on the second season of Marvel series Legion, which he likens to “an experiment” in the saturated comic book adaptation realm, and which remains as mysterious and confounding as ever.
Star Dan Stevens revealed the cast sometimes had to read scripts three or four times before understanding it, or not understand it at all.
“I’ve been told that to understand it, we have to read the one after it,” said series star Jermaine Clement.
“That’s how I keep you coming back, like having to keep upgrading the iPhone,” Hawley joked.
Legion Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes, premiering in February.
