Fargo is currently barreling toward its third-season finale on FX, throwing together its now-expected blend of violence, money, and desperate, morally flexible people. Fans of the series might want to be sure to tune into that June 21 finale, though, because there might not be all that much Fargo left to see.
That’s according to creator and showrunner Noah Hawley, who told attendees at Austin’s ATX Television Festival yesterday that the series’ third season might just be its last. “I wasn’t sure if there would be a second season,” Hawley told Entertainment Weekly. “I wasn’t sure if there would be a third season.” Explaining that, “At end of season 1, [FX] said, ‘If you want to leave it there [that would be fine],’” Hawley noted that “There’s only a certain amount of storytelling you can tell in that vein. And I love telling stories in this vein, but I don’t have another one yet. So watch the 10th hour [of season 3], because it might be the last.”
Hawley is currently operating under an ambitious TV-making schedule. Besides Fargo, he’s also the man behind FX’s trippy X-Men-adjacent series Legion, which is expected to return to TV early next year.
