Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Donovan, and more show up to tease the new season, which promises the same delightful mix of chilly weather, jarring violence, dry humor, and Minnesota nice that made the first one such a hit.

In the first season of Fargo, Keith Carradine played Lou Solverson, the father of the season’s primary sheriff’s deputy character Molly Solverson.
