‘Fargo’ Renewed for Season 5 at FX

Key Art for Fargo Year 4

Another installment of Fargo is coming to FX.

The network has renewed the Emmy, AFI, Peabody and TCA Award-winning limited series created by Noah Hawley. The news comes after the Season 4 finale aired in November 2020.

Each season, Fargo has traveled through decades, cities, and families. In its fifth season, the same will be true yet again. “Set in 2019, when is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?” is all FX teases in the logline.

“Noah and Warren [Littlefield] have delighted and inspired fans through four brilliant chapters of Fargo and we’re thrilled to announce with our partners at MGM a new chapter of what has become one of TV’s best and most acclaimed series,” said Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment, in a statement.

Added Michael Wright, President of Scripted Television at MGM, “Noah Hawley is a masterful storyteller who has successfully created four wholly original seasons of one of the most brilliant series on television. We cannot wait to see his vision for season five come to life with our partners at FX.”

Hawley, who also serves as executive producer, writer, and director, and his production company 26 Keys, lead the creative team of the upcoming installment of the award-winning, true crime story. Littlefield (and his production company The Littlefield Company) also serves as executive producer along with Joel and Ethan Coen, and Steve Stark of Toluca Pictures. The series is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio.
