It’s been a long wait, but new footage has finally been released for the second season of FX’s Emmy-winning anthology series “Fargo.”
The frosty, comic crime thriller surprised last year as both a faithful homage to the eponymous Coen Brothers film and a brilliantly original new series in its own right. Created and written entirely by Noah Hawley, the debut season won the Emmy, Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award for Best Miniseries.
Like “True Detective,” however, the series is rebooting with a new cast, setting and story. “Fargo” Season 2 takes the action to 1979 — 27 years before the events of Season 1 — and centers on a young Lou Solverson, played here by Patrick Wilson (and by Keith Carradine last season). The season will center on a harrowing case Lou described back in the first season, which occurred in Sioux Falls.
FX has now released a pair of character spots, and we’re excited than ever. One eerily introduces us to beautician Peggy Blomquist (Kirsten Dunst), while the other features Wilson showing off a pitch-perfect accent along with Ted Danson, who’s playing Solverson’s sheriff.
You can watch the two teasers below. “Fargo” will premiere on FX in September.
