HBO recently confirmed the new casting for True Detective, and now it's the turn of FX with FARGO. We already know the second season will jump back in time, to dramatise the 1979 Sioux Falls, South Dakota case mentioned by Keith Carradine's character Lou Solverson. Now we know that Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) will play Peggy Blomquist, "… small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations." Her husband, a butcher named Ed, will be played by Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad).
It was also speculated that Nick Offerman could join Jeffrey Donovan and Rachel Keller in the new season. Creator Noah Hawley also confirmed this prequel season will involve Lou Solverson's wife, Betsy, the mother of season 1 heroine Molly (Alison Tolman). Hawley is also taking inspiration from two other Coen Brothers movies this time; Miller's Crossing and The Man Who Wasn't There.
Fargo begins filming in Canada this January, ahead of an autumn 2015 return of 10 episodes.
