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.
