FX Networks has just released a set of new promos for the much awaited season three of the hit dark comedy, FARGO. Catch a glimpse of the new faces added to the set.
Inspired by the 1996 film of the same name directed by the Coen brothers, the anthology series carries the torch in dark, twisted wit. Season three of FARGO will see a barely recognizable Ewan McGregor (TRAINSPOTTING) take on the dual roles of Ray Stussy and his brother Emmit. Carrie Coon (GONE GIRL) is listed to portray the role of Gloria Burgle, chief police of Eden Valley Police. In the new season we will also be seeing Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Scoot McNairy, Thomas Mann, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Stuhlbarg and David Thwelis.
Here’s the synopsis for FARGO season three:
— ‘Set in 2010, the third season centers on “Emmit” and his slightly younger brother “Ray Stussy” (both played by Ewan McGregor). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat competitive bridge. Carrie Coon stars as “Gloria Burgle,” the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Ray’s girlfriend, “Nikki Swango,” a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. David Thewlis stars as “V.M. Vargas,” a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit, whether “The Parking Lot King” likes it or not.’
