Looks like someone isn’t much of a Christmas fan! The first teaser for season 3 of FX’s Fargo has arrived which you can view below. The network has already announced that the 3rd season will debut on April 19th at 10pm.
The synopsis for the series is as follows:
Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on “Emmit” and his slightly younger brother “Ray Stussy” ( dual roles played by Ewan McGregor). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat competitive bridge.
Carrie Coon stars as “Gloria Burgle,” the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Ray’s girlfriend, “Nikki Swango,” a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. David Thewlis stars as “V.M. Vargas,” a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit, whether “The Parking Lot King” likes it or not.
Last month while attending the winter TCA panel, a small number of details were released when the cast attended. We knew that the show would be set in 2010, four years after season 1 took place and would present the latest Midwestern “true crime” story. Along with that information, we knew that the new season would premiere in April.
Now today, we’ve learned that season 3 of FX’s Fargo will premiere on Wednesday, April 19 at 10pm.
Currently in production in Calgary, the third season of “Fargo” stars Ewan McGregor as brothers Emmit and Ray Stussy — Emmit the parking-lot king of Minnesota, Ray a balding, pot-bellied parole officer who blames his brother for his misfortunes. Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and David Thewlis also star.
In season 3, Mary will play Nikki Swango, a parolee who’s “smart and street savvy, with the capacity for conniving” and a dark side, but she has a heart. Her character is also dating Ray Stussy (a dual role by Ewan McGregor).
Mary Elizabeth has a brief new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, which you can view in the gallery. Back in 1999-2000, Mary played the role of Jessica Bennett on Passions. Here’s what she told the mag of her time on the show:
“Gosh. I was so young back then. I was only 14 and didn’t know much about the business. They had such a large cast that I didn’t always have a lot to do because there were so many characters, but I have to say, they were very good about allowing me to leave. And, I learned a lot about working with cameras and memorizing lines, so in that sense it was quite valuable.”
Mary also talks to them about BrainDead‘s cancellation, how filming Fargo on location in Calgary, Canada is “brutal”, and her feelings on when she got the call to join the show[Fargo].
On Saturday evening, Mary stunned the red carpet while attending the 2017 Annual Directors Guild Of America Awards to support her 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg. I’ve added over 70 photos of Mary at the event, so be sure to check out all the great pics in the gallery.
I have added over 100 photos of Mary attending the premiere of FX’s new show “Legion”, debuting next month on the network. Head to the gallery to check out the pics, the majority which are in HQ! You can also view a video of Mary walking the red carpet below:
Season 2 of PBS’ civil war drama Mercy Street returns on January 22 at 8/7c and there are a few brand new stills out courtesy of the official website. I have added stills of Mary from the first two episodes as well as new behind the scenes photos and promo shots. Additionally, if you can’t wait week after week for the brand new episodes to air, the season 2 DVD is already available for purchase.
