The trailer for the second Season of FX’s hit true crime series Fargo was released at the San Diego Comic Con which focused on Sioux falls in the ’70s.
According to the official synopsis, the events of Season 2 will take off in 1979 from two locations Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota where state police officer Lou Solverston will investigate a local crime ring and a mob syndicate, with the help of his father in law, the sheriff, reported ScreenCrush.
The investigation will set the duo on the path of new characters like Karl Weathers, played by Park and Recreation’s Nick Offerman, Joe Bulo (Brad Garrett), Mike Milligan (Bokeem Woodbine), Floyd Gernhardt (Jean Smart) Dodd Gernhardt (Jeffrey Donovan), Bear Gernhardt (Angus Sampson) and Rye Gernhardt (Kieran Culkin).
The trailer focused on the main stars of the show Patrick Wilson (Solverston), Ted Danson (sheriff) as well as Kirsten Dunst, Breaking Bad alum Jeffrey Donovan, former How I Met Your Mother cast member Cristin Milioti and Ash vs. Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell who will play Ronald Regan.
In a recent interview on the The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Noah Hawley said that Season 2 may draw inspiration from the original Coen brothers movie, and their other films.
“What’s really interesting about this exercise of emulating a movie, as a storyteller, is having available to me a whole body of work. The Coen brothers are so varied from Raising Arizona to A Serious Man, there’s so much,” he said.
However, he said that Season 2 will remain true to its original concept of true crime and that “there will always be grisly murder with good versus evil.”
Fargo will return to FX for its second season this September.
