FX announced Fargo will get a third season according to Deadline. The show, characterized as a limited series, is based on the Joel and Ethan Coen movie of the same name, but tells tales far and away from the kidnapping case of the feature. The second season, set in the 1979, stars Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons and Bruce Campbell as presidential hopeful Ronald Reagan.
“Year 2 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,” said Eric Schrier, a President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions.
Besides Fargo, Hawley is developing an number of shows for the cable channel, including Legion, based on the X-Men character, and an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut‘s novel, Cat’s Cradle.
Fargo, which airs on Mondays, has four episodes of the current season left to broadcast.
