‘Fargo’ Season 3 to Take Place in 2010

TCA 2016: FX CEO John Landgraf reveals some details about Noah Hawley anthology series during executive session

We knew when “Fargo” Season 3 would return, and now we know the time period it will depict.

CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions John Landgraf revealed some details about Noah Hawley‘s next season on Saturday, including its 2010 setting. That calendar-year selection makes it the most contemporary version of the franchise: Season 1 of the FX adaption was set in 2006. Season 2 was a throwback to 1979. Obviously, the 1996 film was set earlier than the coming 2010 vision.

Hold your horses on excitement for the new installment, though — “Fargo” Season 3 won’t premiere until 2017.

“It’s a winter show, and we don’t have the time to film this winter,” Hawley had previously told the press.

Hawley recently signed a new, three-year overall deal with FX Productions and FX Networks. Under the deal, he’ll develop numerous new projects while remaining the creator and showrunner of the Emmy, Golden Globe and Peabody-winning limited series.

In addition to “Fargo,” Hawley currently has four projects under development with FX Productions and FX Networks, including Marvel’s “Legion” and an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle.”

During his Television Critics Association press junket time, Landgraf praised his broadcast competition and doubled-down on his previous “too much TV” claim.
