'Fargo' series leaving Netflix in October

Hit FX series Fargo is to leave its longtime home on Netflix in most international regions in October. All three seasons that are currently available are set to depart the service, seeming like both seasons four and five are looking increasingly unlikely to be added.

Notably, the anthology series is based on the iconic 1996 Coen Brothers film of the same name, and follows the arcs of various characters in different periods in Minnesota. The first is set in 2006, the second in the late 1990s and the third in 2010. 

Netflix has been the home of the show in some regions since 2015 and recieved new seasons after they finished their original run in the US on FX. This is set to end, though, with removal notices stating that Fargo is leaving Netflix on October 9th. Meaning the last available date to watch it is October 8th.

The three seasons feature a whole host of legends including: Billy Bob Thornton, Bob Odenkirk, Carrie Coon, Colin Hanks, David Thewlis, Ewan McGregor, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Donovan, Jesse Plemons, Keith Carradine, Kirsten Dunst, Martin Freeman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson.

Fans of the show have been questioning where it will end up, and although it hasn’t been confirmed, speculation has fingered two locations. The first is Disney+, as Disney owns FX, so that would make a lot of sense. The other is Amazon Prime Video. MGM Television produces Fargo for FX, and now that Amazon owns the brand, this would also make sense, but only time will tell.

At the time of writing, nothing has been confirmed on the future of Fargo on streaming sites. 

Some regions set to lose Fargo:

  • Netflix United Kingdom
  • Netflix Australia
  • Netflix Canada
  • Netflix France
  • India
  • Belgium
  • Mexico
  • The Netherlands
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • South Africa
  • Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia)
