The current third season of Fargo could be the last.
That's according to showrunneri Noah Hawley, who told attendees Friday at the ATX Television Festival in Austin he doesn't have any ideas or plans for a fourth season.
"I wasn’t sure if there would be a second season. I wasn’t sure if there would be a third season. At end of season 1, [FX] said, ‘If you want to leave it there [that would be fine],'” Hawley said. “There’s only a certain amount of storytelling you can tell in that vein. And I love telling stories in this vein, but I don’t have another one yet. So watch the 10th hour [of season 3] because it might be the last.”
FX CEO John Landgraf also recently suggested Fargo's future may be in doubt, noting he was unsure if Hawley has ideas for a fourth round "he thinks he can make as good as the prior three."
Fargo has two episodes remaining this season, one on June 14 and the finale airing June 21.
