Each season of Fargo is worth waiting for, and its upcoming fifth chapter is promising one wild ride. After a lot of anticipation, Season 5 of this acclaimed anthology series is coming back this November, and FX shared plot details and the first look at new characters.
Juno Temple leads the fifth season in the role of Dorothy “Dot” Lyon, a seemingly typical Midwestern housewife, who unexpectedly finds herself in trouble with the law. She is drawn back into a life she thought she had left behind after attracting the attention of North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman (Jon Hamm), who’s been searching for her for a long time.
Season 5 will also star David Rysdahl as Dot’s husband, Jennifer Jason Leigh as his mother who’s running a prominent debt collection agency, and Joe Keery as Tillman’s son. Sam Spruell, Lamorne Morris, Richa Moorjani, and Dave Foley are also a part of the ensamble.
Fargo is set in the same universe as the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film of the same name, and it was created for FX by Noah Hawley. Each season unfolds in a new era and setting, and Season 5 will take us to Minnesota and North Dakota in 2019. It will feature a total of ten episodes, set to premiere on FX on November 21.
