FX Renews “Fargo” for Third Season

FX has ordered a third installment of critically acclaimed limited series “Fargo” from creator Noah Hawley. The current sophomore season, which currently ranks as the most critically-acclaimed television of 2015 according to Metacritic (with a score of 96 out of 100) 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.

<em>“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,”</em> said Eric Schrier, Co-President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. <em>“Our thanks to Noah, Warren, Joel & Ethan, John and our partners at MGM Television for making Fargo such a memorable and rewarding journey.”</em>

Emmy Award winning Executive Producers Noah Hawley, Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and John Cameron will all return for the new installment. FX’s “Fargo” is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio.
