One of the best things about the FX series Fargo is its ten-episode, mini-series structure, which allows the writers to tell a complete and (hopefully) satisfying story. There’s something exciting about knowing that all of the loose ends and story threads are going to be tied up by the time you get to the end.
Though Fargo has been advertised as a limited series, there’s always the chance that it could get picked up for another season, especially with its positive critical reception and generally strong ratings. At this point in time, the network hasn’t chimed in on whether the show will continue, though creator and executive producer Noah Hawley says it’s certainly a possibility. In fact, he just signed a two-year deal with FX in April, which reportedly could include a second season of Fargo.
In a recent interview with TV Fanatic, Hawley was asked what a second season of the show would look like. He said:
“It would look like a new movie really. I think if we were to do it again, you would see a new movie with new characters but one that might have some connection either to the first season or to the original movie, just not in a way hopefully that you can predict or expect.”
Additionally, in an interview with THR, Hawley said that he would be meeting with FX and MGM to discuss ideas for a second season, and even expressed interest in sticking with the show beyond that point:
“I’m excited to do another one. I could probably see my way clear in doing a third, but I don’t really know past that if it’s worth doing or whether it’s just good to move on to the next thing.”
As a huge fan of the show, I have to say that I would love a new season but do not want a continuation of the current storyline. If they were to do more seasons, I would hope they give the show an anthology format, picking up each year with a new story and new characters, keeping things fresh and exciting while also giving us that satisfying mini-series episode count.
