FX's Fargo TV series may get a second run, the show's creator Noah Hawley has revealed.

The comedy-drama, which was inspired by the Coen brothers classic 1996 film of the same name, will conclude its ten-episode run on Sunday, June 22 on Channel 4.

Hawley spoke about the possibility of a second season for the show at a FX press conference, saying: "Obviously in an industry like this, any time something is a success, you think how can I make more money off of it.

"That said, my experience with FX is they're very proud of the quality of the work, and their biggest concern is if we were to do it again, could we make it as good or better, and certainly those are conversations that are being had.

"I think that for me, it's really important that there's a kind of alchemy that happens when you get all the right elements in place.

"A lot of it is skill but some of it is luck as well, and I'm not in any hurry to try to top myself there. I'm excited about the idea of really taking the time to think about [it all] and the network is kind enough to allow me to do that."

However, the show's star Martin Freeman has ruled out the possibility of returning as insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, telling Digital Spy: "For the show itself, I don't know [whether it'll return] but yeah, for me, I'm done."
