“Fargo” creator Noah Hawley appeared at the fifth season premiere of the FX series recently and says there’s no plans to end the series anytime soon.
Speaking with Deadline, he says: “I mean, who are we kidding? I’d be lying if I said this is not the most fun I have in my year making this show. I haven’t run out of ways to tell these stories. Why wouldn’t I keep going?”
The show’s fellow executive producer Steve Stark agrees, indicating at least two more seasons of ground to explore: “We’ve covered every decade except the ’60s and the ’90s. So maybe the 60s and 90s.”
The new season unfolds in Minnesota and North Dakota in 2019. After an unexpected series of events lands Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon (Juno Temple) in hot water with the authorities, this seemingly typical Midwestern housewife is suddenly plunged back into a life she thought she had left behind.
North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman (Jon Hamm) has been searching for Dot for a long time. A rancher, preacher and a constitutional lawman, Roy believes that he is the law and therefore is above the law.
At his side is his loyal but hopeless son Gator (Joe Keery), who is desperate to prove himself to his larger-than-life father. Roy enlists Ole Munch (Sam Spruell), a shadowy drifter of mysterious origin to hunt Dot.
Jennifer Jason Leigh, Lamorne Morris, Richa Moorjani, Dave Foley and David Rysdahl also star. The fifth season is set to debut on November 21st.
