Watch: 'Fargo' Season 2 Trailer and Teasers Get Funky, Funny and Violent

After an incredible first year that earned the hit FX anthology series “Fargo” some hardware during awards season, expectations for the second installment are high. The new season adds Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Nick Offerman, Jean Smart, Kieran Culkin, and Bruce Campbell (as Ronald Reagan) to the cast.

A period piece, the next chapter of Noah Hawley’s tale travels back to South Dakota and Minnesota for a 1970s-set adventure. The “true crime” storyline investigates a local gang and a major Mob syndicate, and is inspired by three films of the Coen brothers, including “Miller’s Crossing,” “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” and, of course, “Fargo.” Anything could happen considering the undertones appear to emphasize corporate America, the mob, and politics.

Above, we have the first full trailer for Season 2, featuring the full cast and plenty of plot. Below, these clips are both gruesome and comical, hinting that we can look forward to some of the series’ trademark mix of violence and laughter.
