Fargo Season 3

Fargo Season 3 Time Period Revealed

Fargo is going back to the future in its third season.

After taking a detour to the 1970s in its current second season, FX’s acclaimed anthology thriller will leap forward to the quasi-present day in Season 3.

“It’s more contemporary,” series creator Noah Hawley tells EW.com, adding that the action will be set “a couple years after” Season 1, which took place in 2006.

As a result, Season 3 could “potentially” feature the return of such Season 1 faves as Molly and Gus (played by Allison Tolman and Colin Hanks, respectively), according to Hawley.

Fargo wraps its 10-episode second season on Dec. 14.

    Molly and Gus have to come back.

  5. Ted says:

    I was hoping we’d see young Hank in the 1950s.

  6. zac says:

    If they come back, would Fargo still be considered a miniseries?

  7. Joe says:

    Don’t care. Bring back Lou and Jerry Lundegaard

  8. Guy says:

    As much as I loved the character Molly and Allison Tolman’s brilliant performance, I’m hoping the most they bring her back for is a cameo or something. I’d rather they continue this show as more of an anthology with new casts/settings each season. Plus, Molly and Gus had such a satisfying arc in the first season. I’d rather the writers leave them be.

    I was hoping they’d go back to the forties, and have preteen Lou solving a murder out of his lemonade stand.

    Well so far both seasons have worked for me, so whatever they do for season 3 will hopefully continue the streak.

    How about Ted Danson and Patrick Wilson for Season 3 of the True Detective?

    • If only. They’ll probably go with Nicholas Cage and Lorenzo Lamas in season 3 of True Detective. On the bright side, it can’t possibly be as unwatchable as season 2 of TD, and it’d at least be unintentionally hilarious.

  12. Joey Padron says:

    Good news about season 3. Hope the cast from season 1 that lived will return for next season!

  13. IMHO says:

    Fargo is an excellent show.
    I would prefer it remain an anthology series however having some of the Season 1 characters return would be fun.
    Lorne Malvo was my personal fave Season 1
