The Coen Bros. Are "Not Interested" in 'Fargo' TV Series
Published Feb 24, 2016While the majority of TV critics can't seem to get enough of FX's Alberta-shot Fargo, it turns out that the creators of the original Fargo movie are not the biggest fans.
The show was created by Noah Hawley, and contains plenty of Easter eggs that point back to Joel and Ethan Coen's 1996 film of the same name.
Speaking with Radio Times [via NME], Joel Coen explained that he's indifferent towards the show. "We're just not very interested," he said "I mean, we're perfectly happy with it.We have no problem with it. It just feels divorced from our film somehow."
He added that he's never been interested in spending more than two hours with a set of characters, saying, "We work short. Our longest movie [No Country For Old Men] is two hours, two minutes. It's just not how we think about stories. I mean, after two hours with a character we feel we're pretty much done with them."
Regardless of those feelings, Fargo is still set to return for a third season in 2017.
