It was confirmed yesterday (21st July) that Fargo is being renewed by FX for a second season.
It has now been revealed that the new season will be a prequel set in 1979. As a result, the original cast of the first season are unlikely to feature.
Fargo‘s second season is therefore going to be based on Molly’s father Lou Solverson, focussing on his life as part of a task force when he was 33 years-old. Molly, portrayed by Allison Tolman in the first season, will be only 4 years old and Molly’s mother will be brought into the crime-drama too.
Fargo is likely to return in the latter half of 2015, with filming starting January 2014.
