Next Season's 'Fargo' Will Jump Back to 1979

July 22, 2014


Fargo is heading back to 1979, to those wild and sexy days when Sioux Falls was the Studio 54 of the Midwest. As reported by The Wrap, series' executive producer Noah Hawley recently revealed that his show's second season, which splits time between Luverne, Minnesota and South Dakota's largest city, will jump back in time to look at when Keith Carradine's Lou Solverson was just returning from Vietnam. The younger version of the character--to be played by a younger actor, naturally--would reportedly be thinking he was finally getting away from bloodshed of war, only to then find more violence at home in another expectedly-bloody season of a televised anthology crime series.

Also revealed: in the interest of keeping the actors "able to disappear into the role," it's confirmed that none of the cast from the first season will be returning to play other parts or something, à la American Horror Story. Billy Bob Thornton is free to finally get back to what matters. The music.
