Just before Thanksgiving, FX announced that they had renewed Fargo for a third season, and immediately we all began obsessing. All through season one, references to Sioux Falls were dropped, which felt like the biggest Easter egg ever then when that was announced as the place and event at the center of season two. So what could season three be about? A young Floyd Gerhardt? An earlier Solverson generation? Nope. Noah Hawley has revealed that “It’s more contemporary.” Season three, he says, will be set “a couple years after season 1.” And when asked if that means characters from season one will be returning, he gave a cryptic but hope-inspiring “Potentially.”
EW asked Hawley if there would be connections between the current season and the next. His answer is vague, but fun. As is his way.
“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,” he said. “There will be definitely things that connect to something in our story.”
If you need me, I’ll just be over here getting my hopes up for another season of Molly Solverson.
