After a highly successful run during its first season, FX announced that it is renewing “Fargo” during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour on Monday (July 21).
The series returns with a brand new “true crime” story of 10 episodes featuring an all-new cast of characters and fresh time period. It is set to debut no sooner than the fall of 2015.
“We could not be more proud of Fargo,” FX CEO John Landgraf told press. “Noah’s audacious, bordering on hubristic riff on my favorite Coen brothers film earned 18 Emmy nominations — the most for a single program in our history. Fargo was nothing short of breathtaking, and we look forward to the next installment.”
In addition to “Fargo,” Louis C.K.’s hit “Louie” was picked up for a fifth season featuring seven episodes.
“Louie’s fourth season was once again groundbreaking,” Landgraf said. “Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking – always thought-provoking. The show went to narrative and cinematic places no comedy has gone before, and we look forward to seeing what Louis comes up with next.”
“Louie” earned five Emmy nods for the upcoming award show, including outstanding comedy series, lead actor, writing, directing and casting.
