Archer and Fargo fans should have hope for future seasons of both shows. John Landgraf, FX chief, says that he is optimistic that both shows will continue. Season four of FX’s Fargo aired late last year and Archer will begin airing its 12th season on FXX on August 25th.
Deadline revealed that the death of actress Jessica Walker will have an impact on the latter show’s future. New members have been added to the creative team, and they are working on finding a way for the animated series to move forward without the “irreplaceable” actress.
He said the following:
“That was a very close-knit group so losing Jessica was a big loss but I think creatively, they are trying to figure out a way to proceed forward.”
As for Fargo, series creator Noah Hawley has expressed his own desire to work on another season of the series, but he has his focus on another series for FX – the Alien series which will bring the creatures to earth in 2023.
Landgraf said the following about Fargo returning to FX, per Deadline:
“That’s really up to Noah. I’m optimistic that he’ll want to do another. He’s very focused on Alien right now. We do continue to talk about it, and he expressed positive sentiment toward making another season, so that gives me optimism.”
