Fargo Scores A Third Season Renewal

FX has announced that they’ve renewed their crime anthology series “Fargo” for a third season. Showrunner and creator Noah Hawley is set to return for the next round of the critically-lauded drama.

The news comes as the second season heads into its seconfd half and has attained the highest Metacritic score of any TV series in 2015 with a jaw-dropping 96/100 – above “Master of None” and “Louie: Season 5” (91), “BoJack Horseman: Season 2” (90), “The Knick: Season 2” (85), and “Portlandia: Season 5” (84).

Though not a ratings juggernaut, “Fargo” also has a very steady and stable audience with the most recent episode averaging 2.6 million viewers, more than 1 million of them adults 18-49, in Live + Three Day figures.

Hawley will be entrenched with the network for the forseeable future as he’s also working on the “X-Men” spin-off TV series “Legion” and an event series adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle”.
