Aw Jeez! Fargo Season 3 Won't Air Until 2017

You can blame the weather for this tragedy

Shelli Weinstein

Fans of Fargo won't be seeing any more of the comedic drama for quite a while, and it's all the weather's fault.

Fargo, which wrapped its second season Monday night, won't be returning until at least the spring of 2017, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "It's a winter show, for better or worse, and this winter, there is not time to shoot another year before this winter is over," creator Noah Hawley said in a conference call Tuesday.

Hawley expects the next installment to film in November. The third season is also not necessarily tied into the events of the 1979-set second season, which followed the Sioux Falls Massacre mentioned in Season 1. "We didn't tee up the story of Season 3 within the body of Season 2," said Hawley. "That said, it's very exciting to now think once more 'Well, what else can you do with Fargo?'"

Season 3 will be set in 2010, a handful of years after the timeline of the first season, and will address our selfie-indulgent culture. However, before you get too excited for Colin Hanks and Allison Tolman's return, Hawley says that the next season will deal with a new cast of characters.

Though, "that's not to say that one of our story might not intersect with characters we've seen before for a certain period of time," he teased.
