Fargo’s creator Noah Hawley is a busy guy. He’s got Legion to focus on, and even a Doctor Doom movie, so we figured it’d be a while before he returned to Fargo after it finished its third season. At FX’s Television Critics Association panel today, however, the network’s CEO John Landgraf said Hawley has found an idea for the series’ fourth season. “Noah Hawley, who’s become quite a busy bee not only with Legion but he’s got a pretty substantial career as a novelist and he’s got a pretty substantial feature career coming up as a writer-director, has told us he has an idea, which excites me enormously for a fourth cycle of Fargo,” Landgraf said. “And the plan is to have that ready for 2019.”
Last summer, Landgraf told reporters Hawley might not have an idea for season four for “quite some time.” Hawley is also working on the second season of Legion, which is likely to air this spring.
