FX CEO Says Doesn't Know If Noah Hawley Will Pitch Season 4 Of ‘Fargo’

We all had our doubts when we first heard that Joel and Ethan Coen‘s masterpiece “Fargo” was going to get adapted for the small screen, courtesy of FX, but after the first episode of creator Noah Hawley‘ brilliant series adaptation, we were converted.
If you’ve yet to catch up to the FX show that bears the same name and style of dramedy as the Coen’s 1996 film noir masterpiece, then you are quite possibly missing out on the best show on TV. The first season was a home run, the second season was a near-miracle of multiple moving parts, maybe the best season of television since Season 4 of “Breaking Bad, and finally the third season might not have satisfied every fan with its multitudes of ambiguities and unlikeable characters, but it had its fair share of brilliant moments that cemented Hawley as a world-class storyteller.  The ambition and sheer scope of the series have been nothing short of groundbreaking.
Given the show’s popularity, and the rave reviews that have greeted it over the last three seasons, you would think Hawley would be all for a fourth season happening, but his reluctance has been showing more and more ever since the final episode of season three aired more than 2 months ago. It’s not like FX isn’t ready for it either. They too want more “Fargo,” and FX CEO John Landgraf is waiting for a pitch.
“I hope so, I haven’t heard. We haven’t heard the idea from Noah for what the fourth season would be. I think what we’ve encouraged Noah to do is think about it and make sure he has something he’s really excited about and has something to believe in. There’s a possibility he won’t have that idea for some time. There’s also the possibility because Noah’s been fertile and productive, that we’ll hear that idea soon,” he said.
Hawley isn’t going to force anything, and he’ll let the creative juices start rolling for “Fargo” when they’re ready to. We wouldn’t want it any other way and should we get a fourth season, it’ll be more than worth that wait.
In the meantime, Hawley has been busy, Landgraf says, “working actively on the second season of ‘Legion.’ ”  There’s also talk that Hawley will make a Doctor Doom movie. No wonder “Fargo” is being relegated to the back-end for now – Hawley is turning into one hot commodity. [/Film]
