‘Fargo’ Renewed by FX for Season 3

Crime anthology series wraps Season 2 on Dec. 14

“Fargo” will return for a third season on FX, the network announced Monday.

The crime anthology series from creator Noah Hawley is currently airing its second season, starring Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons. The season finale airs Monday, Dec. 14.

“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 in a statement. “Our thanks to Noah, Warren, Joel & Ethan, John and our partners at MGM Television for making ‘Fargo’ such a memorable and rewarding journey.”

Hawley will return for the new season, as will executive producers Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen and John Cameron. The series is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio.

“Fargo’s” second season follows a young State Trooper (Wilson) and his Sheriff father-in-law (Danson) as they investigate a grisly case involving a local crime family and a major mob syndicate, and a small town beautician (Dunst) and her husband (Plemons) who inadvertently get caught in the middle.
