TVLine Items: Fargo's Status, Face Off Return Date, Mayans Teaser and More


Fargo fans, it’s going to be a very long wait for new episodes.

Season 4 of the FX anthology series won’t start filming until the fall of 2019, likely pushing back the show’s return to 2020, EW.com reports.

“We have a year, and we have a city [that Season 4 takes place in],” executive producer Warren Littlefield told the site, adding that creator Noah Hawley will “commence writing… after he shoots his feature with Fox Searchlight this summer. So in the fall, he’ll begin writing, and with Fargo, we generally have most of the scripts written before we go into production.”
