The X-Men franchise surprised fans with news that the Marvel-ous mutants would spawn not one, but two TV series, the more developed of which will see Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley taking on Charles Xavier’s son Legion. Now, our first official star has arrived, tapping Fargo Season 2 face Rachel Keller for a potentially rogue role.

Not only was 2015 a great year for film, but it might have been a more consistently great year for television — so much so that it was impossibly difficult to choose just 10 shows from a list that began with about 15. As such, I want to give honorable mention to a few of the series that would have been included if this were a longer list: Tina Fey’s remarkable new Netflix comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the final (half?) season of Mad Men, the incomparably hilarious and relatable Broad City, the dizzying and dangerous journey of The Jinx, another delightful season of Orange Is the New Black, the final outing of Parks and Recreation and the reliably enthralling Game of Thrones. Oh, and Difficult People! How could I forget Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner’s wonderfully biting Hulu series? See. It was an excellent year.
If you haven’t caught on to the brilliance of FX’s Fargo by now, we’re comfortable spoiling something for you - people die. Yep, decapitations, rabbits, even deadly window-washing wrought many an end in Fargo‘s second season, all neatly outlined in a spoilery memoriam segment of the many we lost this season

The second season of FX powerhouse Fargo ended about as spectacularly as we’d hoped, closing a ribbon on the 1979 thriller with few overall deaths, but plenty of surprises all the same. That said, Season 2’s timing called into question if Season 3 could reasonably premiere within the span of 2016, while creator Noah Hawley confirms we’re more likely looking at a 2017 return to Fargo.
After only ten short weeks, Fargo has once again shoveled out the closing chapter of its blood-soaked story, as Season 2’s Sioux Falls massacre claimed yet more victims. Season 3 will be well on the way soon enough, but in the meantime, who won’t be taking in another Fargo sunrise after tonight’s “Palindrome?” And what familiar Season 1 characters put in surprise returns?
We’re just days away from the Fargo finale to end all finales, as Season 2 wraps its bloody ‘70s-set Sioux Falls massacre, but one can’t help looking forward to the already-confirmed Season 3, set to return to modern-day. Now, showrunner Noah Hawley opens up on the appeal of a modern approach, as well as when we might expect Season 3 to premiere.
The second season of FX critical darling Fargo returned to 1979 to chronicle the “Sioux Falls Massacre” that an elder Lou Solverson mentioned in Season 1, while the Season 3 renewal had fans wondering which direction the next true crime story might travel. Wonder no longer, as Fargo Season 3 will return to the modern day, potentially spotlighting some familiar characters along the way.
Fargo Season 2 may not garner quite the same ratings as its predecessor (despite critical raves), and showrunner Noah Hawley seems to have picked up a few other projects in the meantime, but you can bet that another homespun tale of murder and mayhem is on its way. FX has officially renewed Fargo for a third season in our future, don’t cha know?
It’s a rare occurrence when one writer takes another’s story and adapts it into an entirely new creature of its own, outside of imitation or homage. It’s even more rare when that writer reinvents his adaptation yet again for a second installment. Noah Hawley did that last year with Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1996 dark comedy Fargo, easily one of 2014's best TV series. Now Hawley’s doing it all over again, adopting the anthology format for a second season of FX’s Fargo, taking the seeds from the Coen brothers’ classic and planting them in another original, bizarre field. But even the creative brilliance of sowing something new can lead to watching a very slow, tepid growth.
