“I mean, who are we kidding?”
Such rays came from Fargo creator Noah Hawley at the FX series’ season five premiere when we asked him if there are more seasons in store beyond Season 5, which debuts on November 21.
Indeed, they are.
“I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t the most fun I’ve had working on this show all year,” Hawley said.
“I haven’t run out of ways to tell these stories,” the creator of six Primetime Emmy-winning series told us last night. “Why shouldn’t I continue?”
EP Steve Stark agrees with Hawley that there is more chaos to explore in Minnesota. “We covered every decade except the ’60s and ’90s. So maybe the ’60s and ’90s.” he told Deadline.
Hawley also adds that “it’s the ’80s.” are possible.
“We’ll do our thing Stranger things crossover,” he joked.
Season 5 Fargo refers to the original concept of the multi-Oscar-winning 1996 film, set against the backdrop of the red state vs. blue state confrontation of 2019. Juno Temple plays “Dot” Lyon, a dutiful mother but with a dark past. Her mother-in-law, Lorraine Lyon (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who hates her, is an old-fashioned person who made money servicing debts. Dot is kidnapped in the season’s first episode, which throws several suspects into play, including her husband, Kia car dealer Wayne Lyon (David Rhydahl).
In battling gun-toting wealthy men from the hinterland this season, Hawley says his reasons were: “The show is always an exploration of America.”
“If you’re going to explore modern America, you have to take it seriously. One thing that comes to mind is that all the main characters in this story are Republicans. These are aspects of Republican Party voters. Some old school. Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character (character) represents big money and power; how the world works,” he said.
“Jon Hamm’s character is on the right; even Juno (in character) and her husband are fiscally conservative; This is not a polemic.”
“It’s really a look at what the last few years have done to the language: When you say ‘freedom’ and I say ‘freedom,’ what are we talking about?” Hawley added.
“We cannot speak the same language,” he continued, “Fargo It is always a tragedy that people cannot communicate.
“People are finding it harder and harder to communicate with each other.”
