FX unveiled a first look at “Fargo” Season 5 while revealing premiere dates for its fall slate of shows on FX and FX on Hulu.
The new season of “Fargo” premieres Tuesday, Nov. 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and takes place in Minnesota and North Dakota in 2019. Per the official synopsis, after an unexpected series of events lands Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon (Juno Temple) in hot water with the authorities, this seemingly typical Midwestern housewife is suddenly plunged back into a life she thought she had left behind.
Jon Hamm plays North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman, who has been searching for Dot for a long time and has his feckless son Gator (played by “Stranger Things” star Joe Keery) at his side. David Rysdahl plays Dot’s well-meaning husband, while Jennifer Jason Leigh fills the role of Dot’s disapproving mother-in-law, who runs the biggest debt collection agency in the country.
Noah Hawley once again serves as showrunner, writer and director of “Fargo” Season 5 and his production company 26 Keys leads the creative team of the latest all-new installment of the true crime story. Warren Littlefield and his production company The Littlefield Company also serves as executive producer along with Steve Stark, Kim Todd, and Joel & Ethan Coen. “Fargo” is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio. The series is internationally distributed by Amazon & MGM Studios Distribution.
