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).
