After only ten short weeks, Fargo has once again shoveled out the closing chapter of its blood-soaked story, as Season 2’s Sioux Falls massacre claimed yet more victims. Season 3 will be well on the way soon enough, but in the meantime, who won’t be taking in another Fargo sunrise after tonight’s “Palindrome?” And what familiar Season 1 characters put in surprise returns?
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!
Now that HBO’s Deadwood finally seems on track for a feature follow-up, as well as the network’s overall trend of movie closure (see: Looking, Hello Ladies), one wonders what became of Jonathan Ames’ Bored to Death after its promised movie. Creator Jonathan Ames has plenty to keep him busy on Starz’s Blunt Talk, but could Bored to Death finally live again?
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.
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?
Amid all the flurry of Upfronts renewals and cancellations, last weeks saw rumors that CBS’ flagship CSI would close its doors for good, leaving only spinoff Cyber on the air for an additional season. Now, the network has confirmed CSI will close out with a two-hour movie returning some of the procedural’s biggest names, while Ted Danson will find a new home with the Cyber folk.
