Fargo - Season 4 - Set In The Past; Won't Return Until 2020 *Updated*



4th February 2019 - Production Begins This Winter

FX boss John Landgraf, speaking at TCA, said that the show will go into production this winter and that the network will keep making it as long as creator Hawley is interested.




8th May 2018 - Won't Start Filming Until Fall 2019

Fargo won’t start shooting until the fall of 2019. While its technically possible FX could try to jam the new episodes out in December at earliest, it’s a rather safe bet that the acclaimed crime drama won’t air until the next year (most likely in April, which is when FX debuted two previous seasons of the show).

“We have a year, and we have a city [that season 4 takes place in],” Littlefield says. “The plan would be to go into production and start shooting in the fall of 2019. Noah has a lot on his plate. Noah knows when it is and where it is, and he’ll commence writing that 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.”




21st March 2018 - Set in the Past

Within the Fargo universe, there is a book: The History of True Crime in the Mid West, containing tales of crimes both major and minor, across a wide breadth of American history. When the book opens its pages once again, the next chapter will fall firmly into the past.

"I now have an idea that's less in the corner of my eye and more in front of me," says Hawley. "I don't have a lot of time right now to focus on it. What I can say is that it will be another period piece."

For the fourth season, Hawley plans on once again digging deeper into the Midwest region's history.

"More and more as I think about telling stories in this vein and what the original film is about, these are really American stories and stories about the American landscape, and the things that people do for money," he says. "I feel like I have a very interesting and exciting direction to go in. I'm trying to find the time to get it down on paper."
