Noah Hawley did the seeming impossible, turning the Coen Brothers acclaimed film Fargo into a TV series. Not only did he do the name justice, but FX’s Fargo is one of the most acclaimed series on television in its own right, joining the ranks of Breaking Bad, Man Men, Game of Thrones and True Detective on lists and nominations. So far there have been no characters from the movie Fargo in the series, so no Marge Gunderson or Jerry Lundegaard. It’s all been original characters like Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) and police chief Molly Solverson (Alison Tolman).
For season two, Hawley took Fargo back to 1979 with an all new cast of characters. Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson play cops investigating the new crime, and Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons play a husband and wife who get wrapped up in it. I spoke with Hawley after FX’s Fargo panel for the Television Critics Association. Season two premieres October 12 at 10 on FX.
