The end of season four of “Fargo” is near, but that hasn’t stopped the showrunners from continuing their fascination with telling stories in the fictional town of Atlanta.
Season four of the FX drama, which has aired for eight seasons and has spawned countless spinoffs, is finally wrapping up its run.
As it happens, season four has also produced the most Emmy nominations in the series’ history, including two for the series star, as well as two for Emmy nominee Jennifer Carpenter.
“I can’t wait to share more with you, but I want to start by thanking all the writers and producers for all the hard work they put in, for all your work and your support,” Fargo season four’s executive producer Noah Hawley told reporters at a panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
“And also to thank you all for all of the amazing stories and the amazing performances you’ve brought to the show,” he added.
“It’s been a wonderful ride and we’ll continue to enjoy it for years to come.”
Fargo, which will end its run at its own schedule on Sunday, March 4, has been the longest-running television show in television history, with over 2,000 episodes and a massive follow-up, “Fridays at the Baxter,” due in 2018.
“Fargo,” which premiered on FX in 1989, has always been a hit with audiences around the world, and has always had a cult following.
It’s been adapted for the big screen, as “Fury Road,” starring George Clooney and Jamie Foxx, and for TV series, including “The Simpsons” and “Breaking Bad.”
Season four will mark the third time that Fargo has been adapted to TV, following the 2013 television adaptation of the books by Dan Simmons, and the 2003 film adaptation of Fargo by Peter Berg.
“We’re really happy that we have such a rich history of storytelling that we can continue to make that tradition work in the present and look forward to what’s coming next,” Hawley said.
“Failed is a story that we’re really proud of and we hope we’ll be able to tell a similar story to the one we tell in the future.”
“Failed” premieres on Sunday night on FX.
