The future of FX’s “Fargo” remains a bit of a mystery.
John Landgraf, president and general manager of the network, told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour on Wednesday that he is hopeful that series creator Noah Hawley will decide to make a fourth season of the Emmy-winning drama.
However, Landgraf pointed out that Hawley, who is currently in production on the second season of FX’s “Legion,” has not given a time frame as to when this might happen and is still brainstorming about the possible storyline for “Fargo.”
“We haven’t heard the idea from Noah for what the fourth season would be,” the executive said. “I think what we’ve encouraged Noah to do is think about it and make sure he has something that he really, really is excited about and believes in.”
“There’s at least some possibility he won’t have that idea for a decent period of time, and I think there’s also a decent possibility, since Noah is insanely fertile and productive, that we’re going to get that idea fairly soon,” Landgraf continued. “He has a really busy schedule, though.”
Hawley told TheWrap in June that he wasn’t yet sure if there will be a fourth season of the show, as he hasn’t yet landed on the premise. “I’m open to it, and they would love it, and I would love it — I just don’t have it yet,” he said.
Season 3, which recently concluded, was nominated for six Emmys, including Best Limited Series.
