While season two of the critically-acclaimed crime mystery series Fargo just finished up this month, don’t expect a new season next year. “You won’t see it in 2016,” said the show’s creator and head writer Noah Hawley in a press conference call, according to Variety. “It’s a winter show for better or worse. There is not time to shoot another year before this winter is over.”

When season 3 does finally debut in 2017, it will jump ahead to the “selfie-oriented culture” of 2010 and, like each season before it, will feature a new cast. “It feels like a social dynamic that is very antithetical to the Lutheran pragmatism of the region,” explained Hawley. “So much of our crime stories are based around the difficulty people have expressing themselves and communicating.”

The show’s structure and style will feel similar but different “so we’re not repeating ourselves,” continued Hawley. “We’re always looking for connections and things that fit into the larger body of work we’re building, hopefully without ever seeming twee or precious or too clever by far.”

Fargo‘s debut season, which starred Billy Bob Thornton and Allison Tolman, won three Emmys (for Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding Directing, and Outstanding Casting), a Golden Globe for Best Miniseries or Television Film, and one for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film (for Thornton).

Season 2 of Fargo, starring Kirsten Dunst and Patrick Wilson, received three Golden Globe nominations last week: Best Mini-Series or Television Film, Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Television Film (Dunst), and Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Television Film (Wilson).

Other upcoming projects for Hawley include Marvel’s Legion, expected to debut next year, and a series adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle.

Production for season 3 is set to begin in November 2016. Expect Fargo season 3 to hit the air in spring 2017, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
