The third season of FX’s anthology drama Fargo will receive its UK premiere on Channel 4 on Wednesday May 31st at 10pm, it has been announced.
Developed for television by Noah Hawley, Fargo is a mini-series franchise based on the feature film of the same name by Joel & Ethan Coen. The third season is set in 2010 and follows Emmit and his slightly younger brother Ray Stussy. 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. The drama series is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions and stars Ewan McGregor in dual roles, Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and David Thewlis. The executive producers are Noah Hawley, Joel & Ethan Coen, Warren Littlefield and John Cameron
