‘Fargo’ Gets Second Season on FX

Has FX given a second season order to Noah Hawley’s “Fargo” miniseries? You betcha.

The network announced Monday at Television Critics Assn. that it has renewed the adaption of Joel and Ethan Coen’s popular film, which recently racked up an astounding 18 Emmy nominations. Similar to HBO’s “True Detective,” this new story will feature different characters (and actors), a fresh time period and a different “true crime” story that will unfold over the course of 10 episodes. It will air in fall 2015 at the earliest.

“We could not be more proud of ‘Fargo,’” said John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks & FX Productions. “Noah’s audacious, bordering on hubristic riff on my favorite Coen brothers film earned 18 Emmy nominations – the most for a single program in our history. ‘Fargo’ was nothing short of breathtaking and we look forward to the next installment.”

“Fargo” is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions. It is written by Hawley, who serves as exec producer with Warren Littlefield, the Coens and Geyer Kosinski.

FX also renewed veteran comedy “Louie” for season 5 on Monday.
