Fargo Third Season To Be Present Day

The other week came word that FX’s anthology series “Fargo” had been renewed for a third season.

Today, creator and showrunner Noah Hawley confirmed to EW that despite the second season being set in the past, the new season will go back to the modern day: “It’s more contemporary” he says with season three set “a couple years after season one”. That begs the obvious question – will characters from season one return? “Potentially.”

Asked if there would be connections between the current season and the next, he says: “There are going to be connections, the way the first year was connected to the movie and the second year was connected to the first, but I think part of the fun is figuring that stuff out and I wouldn’t want to take that away from anybody. There will be definitely things that connect to something in our story.”

The second season will continue over the next few weeks on FX.
