We are more than halfway through the second season of Fargo, and FX has already announced they will be bringing their limited series back for a third season. So far the first two seasons of the dramatic television series have shared very few connections aside from locations and a few characters at very different times in their lives. So what might Fargo season 3 bring? Lets speculate.

High off the success of Fargo, now in its second season, Noah Hawley has set his sights on another all-American classic of pitch-black comedy. Hawley and FX are developing on TV series based on Kurt Vonnegut‘s Cat’s Cradle, a dystopian sci-fi tale that satirizes the Cold War arms race. More details on the Cats Cradle TV series after the jump. Read More »
Just last week we learned that two new TV shows were in development with ties to the X-Men comic book universe. FX Networks has ordered a pilot for a series called Legion while Fox is working on a show called Hellfire. Only loglines for each of the shows were available when news of them surfaced, but now some new details on the former have come to light.
As reported a few days ago, Fargo series creator Noah Hawley is behind the Legion TV series, and the executive producer recently had an interview where he opened up a little bit about the show, including whether or not it will be connected to the X-Men movie universe. Read More »
Noah Hawley did the seeming impossible, turning the Coen Brothers acclaimed film Fargo into a TV series. Not only did he do the name justice, but FX’s Fargo is one of the most acclaimed series on television in its own right, joining the ranks of Breaking Bad, Man Men, Game of Thrones and True Detective on lists and nominations. So far there have been no characters from the movie Fargo in the series, so no Marge Gunderson or Jerry Lundegaard. It’s all been original characters like Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) and police chief Molly Solverson (Alison Tolman).
For season two, Hawley took Fargo back to 1979 with an all new cast of characters. Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson play cops investigating the new crime, and Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons play a husband and wife who get wrapped up in it. I spoke with Hawley after FX’s Fargo panel for the Television Critics Association. Season two premieres October 12 at 10 on FX.

The TV version of Fargo created by Noah Hawley was a surprise last year — originally met with not unjustified skepticism, the show quickly proved itself as a thing that could stand on its own. A second season was quickly ordered, and it isn’t just a continuation of what we saw the first time out. No, Fargo Season 2 bounces back in time to the late ’70s to follow the Lou Solverson character (originally played by Keith Carradine, above) as a younger man. Now Hawley has revealed some new Fargo S2 details, which you can get below. Read More »

It’s like something out of a mad scientist movie: Universal is building its own brain trust like a Frankenstein’s monster version of the Pixar brain trust. We know that two key players in this team are Chris Morgan (Fast/Furious) and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek), with Kurtzman writing and directing a new Mummy picture. Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) was recently confirmed to be on board to write a new Wolfman movie. Now Noah Hawley (Fargo TV series creator/writer) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Now You See Me) are confirmed as part of the group as well. We’ve got more details on the evolving Universal Monsters franchise plan below. Read More »
Noah Hawley is a pretty busy guy. He just shared an Emmy for Outstanding Miniseries awarded for the first season of Fargo, and he’s now in the thick of setting up the second season. (Many more details on Fargo season two are here.) And his novel Before the Fall has been picked up by Sony, and Hawley will script and produce a film adaptation. But there’s also something unexpected coming from him right now: a script for one of Universal’s new revivals of its Universal Monsters line. Read More »
Ethan and Joel Coen’s film Fargo centered on a sheriff’s deputy played perfectly by Frances McDormand, and the spin-off TV series from Noah Hawley also featured a great female role: Deputy Molly Solverson, played by Allison Tolman. Tolman won’t return for the second season, for reasons we’ll explain below. But that doesn’t mean that the upcoming second season of Fargo will abandon the pattern of having great female characters at the center of the show.
In fact, when asked about the new season at the Emmys earlier this week, Hawley said it would be about strong women. Precisely how that will be the case is something he would elaborate on only slightly. But it’s a good start. Read More »
