And here's the official synopsis for season three, which showrunner Noah Hawley has juggled this year along with the Dan Stevens-starring X-Men show Legion. It'll be set in the year 2010:
"Emmit Stussy (McGregor), the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas his slightly younger brother Ray (also McGregor) is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cutthroat competitive bridge.
"Coon plays Gloria Burgle, the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, she is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the folks around them. Winstead stars as Ray’s girlfriend Nikki Swango, a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. Thewlis plays V.M. Vargas, a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit — whether the Parking Lot King likes it or not."
Fargo season 3's cast is shaping up to be another great one. Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon, comedian Jim Gaffigan and David Thewlis have major roles this time around, with McGregor of course playing twins(!).
