Fargo featurette explores the characters of the upcoming third season

Fargo FX Ewan McGregor Mary Elizabeth Winstead

"They're going to turn the Coen brothers' FARGO into a TV series? That sounds like one of the worst ideas I've ever heard of." A little crow never hurt anyone and I can freely admit that the first season of Noah Hawley's Fargo not only lived up to the movie, but it also expanded the world in strange and wonderful ways. Even more impressive was the series' second season, which somehow managed to top the first. The return of Fargo is just two weeks away and early reviews point to it being another winner. FX have released a new featurette for the third season which explores the characters and sets the stage for what's to come.

The official synopsis for Fargo's third season:

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.

Fargo's third season premieres on April 19th on FX.
