The last season of “Fargo ” with comedian Chris Rock, Jason Schwartzman (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”), Ben Whishaw (“Mary Poppins Returns”), and Jessie Buckley (“Chernobyl”) can no longer be seen on Netflix. The series migrated to JoynPlus + with the fourth season. You can test a subscription there for 30 days free of charge and then for 6.99 in the month. Like Netflix, the provider also has the first three seasons of the anthology series, which, if the showrunner has its way, will end after the fifth season. But is there still a fifth season coming?
“Fargo” Season 5: Still no-decision.
From the beginning, it sounded with Noah Hawley that although he is basically ready to take on another season, he is in no hurry to do so. The broadcaster is also in no hurry to order the sequel. If there is to be one, the showrunner wants to make the series more contemporary and set it in the shorter past, especially of course with the events in Minnesota in mind. However, there are no concrete content-related plans, which he confirmed again in an interview with VanityFair in July 2022. He thinks it would be good to put an ending and wrap up this anthology. He doesn’t seem to know yet either himself, because he thinks that he only has a few parts that are not connected and of which it is not clear whether they will make it into development.
“I don’t want to make a final decision for the next few years and so I don’t want to say clearly ‘yes’ to things, but I try to tell stories that I haven’t told before and I want to continue exploring with FX how to use the medium [ Television] can reinvent.”
He definitely did the latter because he is the showrunner of the first TV series from the “Alien” universe that will appear on FX. Hawley is doing the filming this summer and filming is slated to start in 2022.
Overall, it doesn’t look like the fifth season “Fargo” will be released anytime soon, but everyone involved seems to be happy that there will be one.
