The second season of the Fargo TV show (in 2015!) fell even further in the ratings, yet it still managed to score a season three renewal. Will the numbers improve in season three or will they bottom out? Will Fargo be cancelled or renewed for season four on FX? Stay tuned.
An FX crime drama anthology series, the third season of Fargo stars Ewan McGregor (in a dual role), with Carrie Coon, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Thewlis, Goran Bogdan, Andy Yu, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Taking place in 2010, the story follows the sibling rivalry between Emmit (McGregor) the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota,” and his younger brother Ray Stussy (McGregor), a pot-bellied parole officer. Although Emmit sees himself as an American success story, Ray is more of a cautionary tale.
