New 'Fargo' Season Will Feature Sioux Falls

July 22, 2014, 4:34 AM

New 'Fargo' Season Will Feature Sioux Falls

FX is taking another trip to "Fargo."

The network announced Monday it has renewed the series for a second season with a new cast, time period and crime. During the "Fargo" panel at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles, it was announced the second season will revolve around a crime that happened in Sioux Falls in 1979.

The earliest the series will air is fall 2015.

FX CEO John Landgraf said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that while he thinks casting an Oscar-winning actor like Billy Bob Thornton helped attract viewers, he's not sure that it's necessary for season two.

Landgraf noted that Allison Tolman, who began the series as an unknown actress, now has an Emmy nomination.

"We needed Billy Bob Thornton, but now the show, the title, the tone, the writing ... are the star of that show," Landgraf said.

Landgraf compared "Fargo," which also starred Martin Freeman, to HBO's "True Detective," saying the latter "is gonna have to prove that it's more than just a vehicle for movie stars."

Noah Hawley, who wrote every episode of season one, will remain at the helm.

Hawley has "already proven he can write something really great," Landgraf said.

"Fargo," which has earned 18 Emmy nominations, was based on the 1996 Coen brothers' movie starring Frances McDormand, Steve Buscemi and William H. Macy.

 

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
Billy Bob Thornton was not in the 1996 film "Fargo."
