Fargo FX

With the Season 3 finale of Fargo just a couple weeks away, fans are undoubtedly wondering what showrunner Noah Hawley has in store for Season 4. Hawley spoke to folks at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, and stated that as of now there is no Season 4. Does that mean Fargo will end with Season 3? Hawley's words can be found below.

I wasn't sure if there would be a second season. I wasn't sure if there would be a third season. At end of season 1, [FX] said, 'If you want to leave it there [that would be fine]. There's only a certain amount of storytelling you can tell in that vein. And I love telling stories in this vein, but I don't have another one yet. So watch the 10th hour [of Season 3] because it might be the last.

Noah Hawley's words to ATX fans (via EW) appear to a soft tease that Fargo could be headed to an end. While some fans may be upset about not getting another season of kooky characters living in Minnesota and North Dakota, others may view it best to go out on top rather than forcing Season 4 with no idea. There's still time for Hawley to come up with an idea, as Season 3 of the series has yet to conclude, but Hawley's not the only one hinting that Fargo could be reaching its end.

FX CEO John Landgraf has also indicated that Fargo could be airing its final episodes. His words to reporters echoed Noah Hawley's, and essentially said that if Hawley can't come up with an idea as good as the past three seasons, they'll hang it up. That would at least seem to solidify that FX has no plans of moving Fargo forward without Hawley attached, which sounds like a wise decision. With the showrunner working on Season 2 of Legion, he likely hasn't had a lot of time to think of Fargo. That doesn't seem to be a huge issue, as FX appears to have worked with Hawley in the past in making sure the show has the time it needs for the quality it requires.

Fargo's schedule had about four months of downtime between the first two seasons, and a little over a year between Season 2 and Season 3. With Fargo still having a couple weeks before its finale, one would think Noah Hawley could take another year and come up with something just as exciting, considering his track record. Whether Hawley is up for continuing the series remains to be seen.

Fargo is all new June 14th at 10 p.m. ET, and is just one of the many awesome shows appearing on television at the moment.
