An acclaimed drama series that just wrapped its season won’t be back until 2017. Breaking the news about the FX series “Fargo” was Noah Hawley, the show’s creator and driving force.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that Hawley followed up on the season two finale with a conference call today with reporters. The article quotes Hawley saying during the call: “It’s a winter show, for better or worse, and this winter, there is not time to shoot another year before this winter is over.”
Talking about season three, Hawley adds: “I’ve written the first hour and we’re about half-way through breaking the season and we’ll be writing over the next few months with the idea that we’ll go into production, much like our first year, we’ll be shooting in November and hopefully back on the air in the spring of 2017.”
Season two of the anthology series wrapped Monday night. The show has chalked up a steady stream of awards, including a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Miniseries in 2014 and a Peabody Award in 2015.
