You betcha FX is going back to Fargo. The series will officially return for a second season, the network announced at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Monday. Executive producer and writer Noah Hawley will craft another 10-episode tale featuring all-new characters (and an all-new cast of actors), a new time period, and a new true crime story.
But Fargo might look a lot different in Season 2. Like, "completely different source material" different. Hawley recently told The Hollywood Reporter that "what's really interesting about this exercise of emulating a movie, as a storyteller, is having available to me a whole body of work. The Coen brothers are so varied—from Raising Arizona to A Serious Man, there's so much."
So go ahead and get your wishlist going now: Who would you cast? When should the story take place? What Coen brothers' crossovers would you like to see? Let's hear your best ideas in the comments.
In more unsurprising but totally welcome news, FX has also renewed Louie for a seven-episode fifth season, with a target debut date of late spring 2015. That's a sizable decrease from Season 4, which recently wrapped a 14-episode run that regularly made headlines for its thought-provoking and sometimes controversial content.
Which renewal are you more excited for?
