FX have released the official trailer for season 2 of FARGO, which looks fantastic. I was a huge fan of the first season, but have been concerned about the idea of telling a completely different story each season. It's not working out too well for True Detective over on HBO, is it. Mind you, Fargo appears to have a much wiser strategy—because while the story, characters and even the decade's different (this takes us back to 1979), it's still all taking place in snowy Minnesota and works as a prequel for Keith Carradine's cop-turned-restauranteur Lou Solverson.
And the cast is much, much starrier than last time. Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa), Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad) and Colin Hanks (Band of Brothers)? PAH! I raise you Patrick Wilson (as the young Lou Solverson), Ted Danson (Cheers), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man), Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), Jean Smart (24), Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation). Bruce Campbell will even be appearing as Ronald Reagan!
FARGO will premiere on FX in the U.S this October.
