The last time we saw an episode of Fargo, the FX anthology series largely based on the Joel and Ethan Coen movie of the same name, it had been almost two years.
A Black migrant crime syndicate battled the Italian mafia in 1950s Kansas City in season four, with Chris Rock directing a fantastic cast. This marked a slight shift in the show’s tone from prior seasons.
In other words, because Fargo is always eager to change directions and broaden its scope, we never really know what the show will look like from one season to the next. Here is all we currently know about the forthcoming season, even if there isn’t an official release date yet.
Where was it filmed?
The forthcoming fifth season of the show will take place in 2019 and is expected to be more modern than the previous season, which was set in the early 1950s and told a noir-tinged tale of crime in midwestern America.
The official logline, “When is a kidnapping, not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours,” intrigues us even though we don’t know much about the narrative.
Who will be involved?
It’s okay if you don’t know much about the plot because part of the joy of anticipating a new season of Fargo is wondering how the confirmed actors will fit into Noah Hawley’s bizarre midwestern environment.
The fifth season does indeed have some intriguing names associated with it. Jon Hamm is there, taking the helm of a television season for the first time since Mad Men finished in 2015.
The talented Jennifer Jason Leigh, whose credits span decades and include Weeds, Twin Peaks, Backdraft, and The Hateful Eight, will be joining him. Juno Temple is best remembered for her role as the lovely and ambitious marketing and public relations manager Keeley on Ted Lasso.
FX revealed a couple more cast additions in August: Richa Moorjani from Never Have I Ever will portray Indira Olmstead, Joe Keery from Stranger Things will play Gator Tillman, and Lamorne Morris from New Girl will play Witt Farr.
When will it debut?
There is currently no official start date for the upcoming season of the show, which has seen a number of different seasons premiere at different periods in the past. Follow along!
