'Fargo' Season Three Delayed For One Year

Fans will have to wait a bit longer than expect to watch season three of 'Fargo'.

Series creator Noah Hawley said during a conference call this week that the new season won't premiere until the spring of 2017.

"It's a winter show, and we don't have the time to film this winter," he said.

As for right now, production for next season isn't set to begin nearly a year from now -- until next November.

Hawley, who has already written the script for the premiere, offered a tease as to what fans could expect: "It's a more contemporary story, and I think that's exciting. Our first year was set in 2006, but we didn't really deal with what it was like to be in that region in a more contemporary world."

"I like the idea that we're now living in a very selfie-oriented culture where people photograph what they're eating and put it up for other people to see. It feels like a social dynamic that is very antithetical to the Lutheran pragmatism of the region. So many of our crime stories are based on the difficulty that people have expressing themselves and communicating."

"In a lot of ways, the tragedies that are at the heart of these crimes could all be averted if Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) could have asked his father-in-law for the money or if Lester (Martin Freeman) could have been honest about who he was, or Peggy (Kirsten Dunst) as well."

"I like the idea of setting up these pragmatic and humble people against the culture of narcissism and what that generates for us, storywise."

FX series 'Fargo' earned three Golden Globe nominations last week, including Best Television Limited Series.
