FX has revealed future plans for two of its drama series, with one finally beginning production on a new season, and the other reaching its conclusion.
During an appearance at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Monday, FX chief John Landgraf divulged details about the cable net's lineup, and what's in store for viewers in the coming year. And while there's still no premiere date yet, Landgraf finally offered an update on when work will begin on the long-awaited fourth season of celebrated anthology series "Fargo."
“We’ve actually now heard the season pitch for the fourth season of Fargo; .... I read the first script and loved it," Landgraf told the TCA crowd. "I didn’t know if it would go past one season [but] as long as [Hawley] can come up with fantastic ideas, we’ll make them forever if he keeps coming up with them."
Another Hawley series that won't go on forever, however, is "Legion." The show, based on the Marvel comics and starring Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey," "Beauty and the Beast"), was recently renewed for a third season, and Landgraf said on Monday that that would be its last. The CEO added that that timeframe was always Hawley's plan.
The third and final season of "Legion" is set to premiere on FX sometime this spring. No word on a concrete date just yet.
