FX announced Fargo Season 5 will premiere on November 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The fifth season of the Emmy-award-winning series takes place in Minnesota and North Dakota in 2019.
FX unveiled first-look photos of the cast, featuring Juno Temple, Jon Hamm, Joe Keery, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Sam Spruell, Richa Moorjani, Lamorne Morris, David Rysdahl, and Dave Foley.
What to Expect in Fargo Season 5?
“After an unexpected series of events lands Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon (Temple) in hot water with the authorities, this seemingly typical Midwestern housewife is suddenly plunged back into a life she thought she had left behind,” the official synopsis reads. “North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman (Hamm) has been searching for Dot for a long time. A rancher, preacher, and a constitutional lawman, Roy believes that he is the law and therefore is above the law.”
Keery plays Roy’s incompetent son Gator, and Spruell stars as Ole Munch, a mysterious hunter hired by Roy to track Dot. Rysdahl plays Wayne, Dot’s husband, while Leigh plays Lorraine Lyon, Dot’s disapproving mother-in-law who is the “CEO of the largest Debt Collection Agency in the country.” Foley plays Danish Graves, Lorraine’s in-house counsel who aids Dot.
Moorjani and Morris star as Minnesota Police Deputy Indira Olmstead and North Dakota Deputy Witt Farr, two police officers suspicious of Dot. “But Dot has an uncanny knack for survival,” the synopsis continues, “and with her back to the wall, she’s about to show why one should never provoke a mother Lyon.”
Series creator and executive producer Noah Hawley returns for Season 5 as showrunner, writer, and director. Joel and Ethan Coen, who co-wrote 1996’s Fargo, serve as Executive Producers alongside Wteve Stark and Kim Todd. 26 Keys and Warren Littlefield’s The Littlefield Company produce alongside MGM Television and FX Productions.
