A gunshot and a doughnut shop: Watch the trailer for season 2 of 'Fargo'



That's more like it.

After putting out a couple of cryptic teasers last week, FX released its first traditional trailer for season two of Fargo Tuesday.

The trailer (seen above) features some worried-looking faces, a gunshot, what looks like a bloodstain, snow-covered fields, and a good-old-fashioned doughnut shop assault.

We also get glimpses of new stars Kirtsen Dunst, Ted Danson, Jesse Plemons (that's Todd from "Breaking Bad"), Patrick Wilson and Jean Smart.

The series also features Jeffrey Donovan, Bruce Campbell, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, Keir O’Donnell, Kieran Culkin, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Hogan, Cristin Milioti and Adam Arkin, Variety says. It's set to air starting in September, though an exact date hasn't been given.

Season two takes place in 1979, mainly in Sioux Falls, South Dakota – though there will be return visits to Luverne and Duluth in Minnesota, as well as Fargo (of course).

It features a younger state trooper named Lou Solverson – father of main character Molly Solverson in season one – and explores the violent incident he hinted at in the first season season, Vulture says.

According to Variety, Solverson is assigned to protect presidential candidate Ronald Reagan during a campaign stop in Fargo. There's also an investigation into the local mob and a crime syndicate.

Solverson will be played by Wilson this time around. (Keith Carradine portrayed him last year.) Here he is in one of those earlier teasers with Danson.


Dunst (seen in the clip below) plays Peggy Blomquist, a “small town woman with big-city dreams.” Plemons gets the tole of Ed Bloomquist, her husband.


The first season was a critical and commercial success, ranking first in HitFix’s Television Critics’ Poll ahead of powerhouses such as “The Good Wife” and “Game of Thrones.” It won an Emmy for Outstanding Miniseries and Outstanding Director in a Miniseries.
