After heading back to the 1970s for its current season, FX's "Fargo" will return to a more contemporary setting for its recently announced Season 3.
Showrunner Noah Hawley, who’s also developing a “Legion” TV series for FX based on the Marvel character, told Entertainment Weekly that the story will shift to "a couple years after Season 1," which took place in 2006.
The Emmy Award-winning first season, which starred Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman, has direct links to the second, which delves into the "Sioux Falls incident" referenced by Keith Carradine's retired state trooper Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson portrays a younger version of the character in Season 2).
Although it seems likely we'll see some characters carry over into the third season, Hawley isn't ready to connect all the dots just yet.
“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," he said, "but I think part of the fun is figuring that stuff out and I wouldn’t want to take that away from anybody. There will be definitely things that connect to something in our story.”
