At one point during this interview, Jeff Bridges leaned back in his chair, laughed, then broke into an impression of Jeffrey Lebowski, his character from 'The Big Lebowski' who is also famously known as The Dude. It was at this moment that I decided that the trip from New York City to San Diego for Comic-Con was worth it.
Earlier today brought the expected, if somewhat disheartening news that FX would indeed move forward with 'Fargo' season 2 in 2015, albeit with an all-new story and cast. Now, 'Fargo' producer Noah Hawley has generously stepped up to reveal a major character connection to the first season, as well as the new 1979 time period, and what other Coen brothers films we can expect as influences!
The FX network is among the last TV heavy-hitters to bring its series to the ongoing TCA press tour panels, and already brings both good news and bad. For one, FX's 'Fargo' miniseries will officially return for a second season in 2015, while Louis C.K.'s Emmy-winning 'Louie' has also been confirmed for a fifth season. So, what's the bad news?
The 2014 Emmy Nominations are in, and expectedly outraging everyone across the internet. It takes a 'True Detective' to figure out this 'American Horror Story,' but did the right nominations go to the right people? Will Tatiana Maslany ever get her due? Can dogs really write blogs? We weigh in on the upsets, upchucks and underdogs of today's TV snubs.
Don’t any of these people know what a miniseries is anymore? In today’s TV landscape there are anthology series, “event series,” reboots, and relaunches. There are shows that were meant as series, but then given endings because they’re never coming back, and series that give themselves an series finale only to be given a reprieve at the last minute a million times
After only 10 episodes, FX's 'Fargo' adaptation has come to a snow-fallen close with Tuesday's season (series?) finale "Morton's Fork." Bodies hit the ground, bullets flew and plenty of "you betcha"s abounded, but what does showrunner Noah Hawley have to say about the big ending? And what might we pick up on if FX opts for a second trip to 'Fargo' in 2015?
After only ten episodes, and with no guarantee of a second season, FX's 'Fargo' will come to an end this Tuesday with its first season (series?) finale "Morton's Fork." In it, Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) remains hot on the trail of Lester (Martin Freeman), but will the police catch up in time to thwart a snow-fallen bloodbath? Get a clue with the full set of photos from the 'Fargo' finale!
Last week's FX 'Fargo' installment, "Eating the Blame," proved special in a number of regards, not only establishing a direct link between the 1996 Coen brothers Oscar winner and FX's own adaptation, but also for putting Adam Goldberg and Russell Harvard's enigmatic mob men, "Mr. Numbers" and "Mr. Wrench," directly in Lester's (Martin Freeman's) path.
We had the chance to chat with Goldberg recently, wherein the 'Fargo' star revealed the difficult nature of shooting, 'Fargo''s movie tie-in and season 2 potential.
FX's 'Fargo' adaptation of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers film made a healthy splash in the ratings this week, in addition to registering a big hit with critics, but buzz will surely build as we approach the arrival of the snow-fallen drama's most surprising additions to date: comedians Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Watch the stars of Comedy Central's 'Key & Peele' make their 'Fargo' debut in the first footage!
Now that 'Justified' season 5 has fallen by the wayside, FX is looking to the future for its spring and summer offerings. 'The Americans' season 2 continues to capture critical raves in spite of modest ratings, while the 'Fargo' TV series builds a hefty amount of buzz for its April 15 debut, so what does FX president John Landgraf have to say about the future of either series?
