A few days ago came word that “Fargo” creator Noah Hawley has an idea for the eventual fourth season of his FX anthology series, but as of now hasn’t written anything for it and has a busy schedule ahead of him with other projects.
Not only that, but with the emergence of another FX show he created, “Legion,” and the “Doctor Doom” movie that he is writing and directing, it doesn’t seem like he’s going to have a chance to write it anytime soon.
In a separate interview with The Wrap, Hawley has given fans a hard bit of truth – not only will there not be any new “Fargo” this year, don’t expect it in 2019 either:
“I think realistically we will certainly be filming it next year. Mostly just because it’s a winter show. You know, I have to write [the episodes], then we have to prep it, then we have to film it, which means it’s either this coming winter or next 2winter.
Given my schedule with making a movie and posting a movie this summer, and then gearing up to do more ‘Legion’ assuming we get a pickup, it seems like a long shot that I can launch ‘Fargo’ 4 this winter.”
The second season of Hawley’s “Legion” premieres April 3rd on FX. Hawley is in pre-production on “Pale Blue Dot” with Natalie Portman and Jon Hamm with that filming this Summer. He’s also penned the script for a “Doctor Doom” film.
