It’s a rare occurrence when one writer takes another’s story and adapts it into an entirely new creature of its own, outside of imitation or homage. It’s even more rare when that writer reinvents his adaptation yet again for a second installment. Noah Hawley did that last year with Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1996 dark comedy Fargo, easily one of 2014's best TV series. Now Hawley’s doing it all over again, adopting the anthology format for a second season of FX’s Fargo, taking the seeds from the Coen brothers’ classic and planting them in another original, bizarre field. But even the creative brilliance of sowing something new can lead to watching a very slow, tepid growth.
We’re less than a month away from the October premiere of FX’s Fargo Season 2, even with the onslaught of fall TV looming over the next few weeks, but the ‘70s-set series has something to warm us over in the meantime. Check out the full set of cast photos, as well as a look at the Fargo Season 2 premiere!
Sometimes I wonder if we know what to do with Patrick Wilson. It’s rare that he’s utilized well, but when he is, Wilson is excellent to watch. The Conjuring, Little Children and Girls all put Wilson’s talents to good use, but then there’s stuff like Zipper…which doesn’t quite seem like the best use of his time. The new trailer showcases a so-so thriller that looks like Shame meets The Ides of March.
FX’s Fargo shoveled out a few Season 2 teases of late, but the snow has officially thawed to bring us a full two and a half-minute trailer of the ‘70s-set tale of homespun murder and mayhem. See the star-studded cast on full display and watch for blood stains with a full preview of Fargo Season 2!
FX’s Fargo Season 2 recently unearthed its first trailer out from under the snow, and before the next storm hits, the Coen brothers-inspired true crime tale has a few more bloody gems. Return to homespun murder and mayhem with some quaint new blood-soaked teasers, as well as photos of the all-new cast.
FX’s Fargo got a jump on Season 2 over the Comic-Con weekend with a few fresh teasers, and by golly, that snowfall isn’t about to let up. Our first full trailer to the sequel-prequel season of FX’s breakout hit has arrived, and the Sioux Falls ‘70s look to be even more dryly violent than the first time around.
Say it with me now: Minn-eh-soooo-tah. New Fargo Season 2 teasers have arrived, don’tcha know? Okay, enough with the regional dialect jokes. The latest teasers for Fargo actually feature the actors from the upcoming second season of FX’s series, which is loosely based on the Coen brothers’ film of the same name. Ted Danson, Patrick Wilson and Kirsten Dunst head to the snowy northern state in two new spots to get you all excited for the fall premiere.
The Conjuring was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013, the rare modern horror movie to strike that perfect balance between crowd-pleasing mainstream fare and nerdy, genre-specific detail. Casual horror fans loved it. Hardcore horror fans loved it. A sequel was announced almost instantly. Now, two years later, we have our first real shred of evidence that the second cinematic case of Ed and Lorraine Warren is actually, truly happening.
It’s been a good long while since FX’s Fargo adaptation spoke anything of its second seasons, don’t ya know, and darn tootin’ we’ve waited, you betcha! Noah Hawley’s adapted breed of snowfallen ultra-violence is on full display in the first full teaser of Fargo Season 2, but who might be on the on the wrong end of a good pecking?
Say what you will about How I Met Your Mother squandering titular star Cristin Milioti, FX’s hotly-anticipated Fargo Season 2 will give the actress another chance at a revered matriarch. Milioti will join the cast of FX’s Emmy-nominated Coen brothers adaptation in the Season 2 role of an oft-discussed mother, but will her fate prove as dire this time around?
