FX Issues Green Light For Fargo Season 3.

FX just keeps rolling out the good news for its marquee anthology series, with American Horror Story and now the critically-adorned crime drama Fargo primed to return in 2016.

The second season, which is currently airing on Monday nights, has been averaging a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.22 million viewers (per the live + same day ratings). The prolific showrunner, currently under an overall deal with FX Productions, is now set to tackle a third season of his critically cherished Fargo anthology.

When “” and “True Detective” both arrived in 2014, it was the latter that was seen as the smarter, more philosophical show, providing more of a meal to the quirky snack of FX’s Coen Brothers approved series. News of the latter’s renewal arrived earlier today, and though no cast or premiere dates were locked down, series creator Noah Hawley, John Cameron, Warren Littlefield, along with Joel & Ethan Coen are confirmed to executive produce the next outing. “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,” Schrier said along with FX Networks and FX Productions president of programming Eric Schrier, who announced the pickup alongside fellow president Nick Grad. “Our thanks to Noah, Warren, Joel and Ethan, John and our partners at MGM Television for making Fargo such a memorable and rewarding journey.” Based on the Coen brothers’ revered 1996 drama of the same name, Fargo received high praise in its jump from one medium to another, earning no less than 18 Emmy nominations after its inaugural season in 2014. By all accounts, it’s a seal of quality that the series continue to champion during its second outing on the airwaves, and today’s confirmation of season 3 underlines just how well Fargo is performing with audiences, too. Currently mid-way through its sophomore stint, Fargo season 2 is situated in 1979 and stars Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett and Kieran Culkin.

Indeed, the network are falling over themselves for Hawley, recently inking the “Fargo” creator for a limited series adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle.” I’d wager the plan will be to get “Fargo” done for the third season air next year, with “Cat’s Cradle” to follow. No, you did it!” (Episode 7, Airs November 23, 10:00 pm e/p) – Lou and Hank investigate in Fargo, The King of Breakfast visits Betsy and Molly, Floyd is summoned away and Bear questions a family member’s loyalty. The first installment of Fargo garnered universal critical acclaim and won three Emmy awards, including Outstanding Miniseries, two Golden Globe awards, including Best Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, and a Peabody Award. FX is the former home of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning hit drama series The Shield, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, Damages, Sons of Anarchy and Justified.
