Here's When Fargo Season 3 Will Be Set

You might see some familiar faces on Fargo next season

Fargo is going back to the future in its third season.

Showrunner Noah Hawley told Entertainment Weeklythat Season 3 of FX's anthology drama will take place "a couple years after" the events of Season 1, which was set in 2006. The in-progress second season is set in 1979. Characters from Season 1 or even older versions of characters from Season 2 could "potentially" return, Hawley said. (Paging Allison Tolman!)

"There are going to be connections, the way the first year was connected to the movie and the second year was connected to the first, but I think part of the fun is figuring that stuff out and I wouldn't want to take that away from anybody," he said. "There will be definitely things that connect to something in our story."

FX renews Fargo for third season

There have been some connections between the first and second seasons: the character Lou Solverson has appeared in both seasons, played by Keith Carradine in Season 1 and Patrick Wilson in Season 2.

Fargo airs Mondays at 10/9c on FX.
