FX confirms series four of Fargo, Chris Rock to star

Well, this is the best news. There has been plenty of chatter about whether a fourth series of Fargo would actually happen, mainly because showrunner Noah Hawley has become one of the busiest and most sought-after talents in Hollywood. We’ve loved all three series of Fargo in varying degrees of intensity, and we didn’t mind…

Fargo set to return but not until 2020

Fargo is one of our favourite TV crime dramas, sometimes scaling heights that other shows just simply cannot reach. After three series starring the likes of Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Kirsten Dunst (pictured left), Ewan McGregor, David Thewlis and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, speculation has been rife at who the next Hollywood star would be…

And so it came to this. The end. Or was it? That’s the question many fans of this often magnificent, often quixotic series will have asked at the end of this finale. It was a brilliant episode, a stunning finale, but that end – the very end – will have left some fans reeling. Perhaps…

Up until now, we’ve had more or less a bit of everything in this series – the sublime (a lot of that), some unevenness and a bit of the ridiculous. With the end fast approaching there’s a lot to be tied up, but this penultimate episode felt melancholy and reflective in mood and tone; the…

                    We’re nearing the end of series three of Fargo, and now, with the Stussy brothers’ feud now over, it’s down to the last men and women standing to wage a battle royale. For what exactly? Like series one, a plain and simple, good, old fashioned…

Review: Fargo (S3 E7/10), Wednesday 12th July, Channel 4

I hate to say it – and I feel cruel for saying it – but ever since Ray Stussy bit the dust in last week’s episode, Fargo became excellent. Ray’s unfortunate demise has paved the way for series three’s most interesting characters – VM Varga, Nikki Swango and Gloria Burgle – to emerge, fully-formed, and…

I’m using this weekend to catch up on some the things I’ve missed during the week – yes, it has been one of those weeks – and Fargo is one of the things I just will not miss. After last week’s episode, where Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Nikki Swango was hideously beaten by VM Varga’s merciless henchmen, the…

Review: Fargo (S3 E5/10), Wednesday 28th June, Channel 4

After the brilliance of episodes three and four, we were back to relative normality in episode five of Fargo. And I say that with some regret because the weakest part of this story – in my opinion – just happens to be the main part of the story. Yes, we were back to witnessing the ever-disintegrating…

Will there be a fourth series of Fargo?

I’m soon to post my review of last night’s fourth episode of Fargo, but in the US the third series is concluded last night (Wednesday 21st). Even though where we are in the UK it hasn’t hit the heights of previous series, there’s still much to enjoy. The talk is now whether showrunner Noah Hawley…

Review: Fargo (S3 E2/10), Wednesday 7th June, Channel 4

Last week’s opening episode of the third series of Fargo was another fine piece of storytelling, but, for me, it didn’t quite have the same impact as the openers of series one and two had. Why? It looked great and all those Fargo themes and tropes were present and correct and thrown into the mix…

Review: Fargo (S3 E1/10), Wednesday 31st May, 10pm, Channel 4

Is there anything more comforting than seeing, “THIS IS A TRUE STORY. The events depicted in this film took place in Minnesota in xxxx. At the request of the survivors, the names have been changed. Out of respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred” appear on screen? For two…
