The first season of the FX series Fargo drew a lot of big names to its cast, and it seems the second series is poised to double down on that. In two new promos, cast members Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, and Patrick Wilson all get their first introduction to the series, which will take place in 1979, and act as a prequel to Season 1. Season 2 will focus on Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in first season, and Wilson in the upcoming season), and pivot around the violent events Solverson spoke cryptically about in Season 1.
Check out the first two promos below, “Break Time’s Over,” where Danson and Wilson get back on the clock, and “Curl Up N’ Dye,” where Dunst has a Lady Macbeth moment. “Some sins can’t be washed away.”
On a lighter note from these dark portends, Evil Dead star Bruce Campbell is also joining the cast as a pre-POTUS Ronald Reagan. According to EW,
Reagan swings through Minnesota on a whistle-stop campaign tour and state cop Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson) is assigned to the politician’s protection detail.
Making America groovy? You can check out the Campbell as the Gipper button that FX handed out earlier out at a Comic-Con fan event. The series returns to FX in September, and also stars Nick Offerman, Jesse Plemons, and Bokeem Woodbine.
