Here's a downer for fans of Fargo: the current season could well be its last.

The series based off of the Coen Brothers' 1996, Oscar-winning movie has been critically acclaimed since debuting on the small screen in 2014, with Minnesota featuring as the main setting (although it's filmed in Canada).

Season three is airing now on FX, but the TV channel's chief John Landgraf suggested in interview with The Hollywood Reporter that there could be no more once this season wraps up.

The future is in the hands of showrunner Noah Hawley, and Landgraf is not convinced that there will be anywhere for the season to go by the end.

"There may never be another Fargo," Landgraf told the magazine. "Unless Noah has an idea for Fargo that he thinks he can make as good as the prior three. I think once people get to the end of this [season] they will find that it is thematically different. It’s really about the moment we live in now.”

There remains hope for fans though, with the show's executive producer John Cameron saying earlier this year he believes the show's universe means they could churn out "an unlimited amount of interesting stories," according to Digital Spy.

Since it debuted on TV, Fargo has been nominated for 164 awards, winning 40 of them, including two Emmy Awards and two Golden Globes, the website notes.
