Fargo returns in April

We can't wait.

Coming this April, St. Cloud, Minnesota, gets the Fargo treatment.

FX announced season three of the Fargo TV series will premiere on April 19 (that's a Wednesday).

This season of the series will jump to its third time period, taking place in 2010 in the St. Cloud and Eden Valley areas of Minnesota, showrunner Noah Hawley has previously said.

It stars Ewan McGregor, who will play two brothers – Emmit Stussy is the successful “parking lot king of Minnesota,” the other, Ray Stussy, is a less successful parole officer. Also in the season is Carrie Coon, who plays a police chief in Eden Valley, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, a parolee who plays bridge.

Jim Gaffigan (yes, the comedian) and David Thewlis (Remus Lupin in Harry Potter) are among the others in the cast. Here’s a rundown of more cast members announced late last year.

Season two took place in the 1970s, while season one was in the early 2000s. So this will be the closest the show has come to the current state of technology – smartphones, social media, etc. etc.

It will once again be 10 episodes.

In the meantime, Hawley's second FX series Legion is airing right now. And one of the stars is the St. Paul-born Rachel Keller (who was also in season two of Fargo). Like Fargo, the Legion series has been met with very good reviews.
