FX has also revealed a detailed plot synopsis for the new season for the first time, which reads: “The latest installment of ‘Fargo’ is set in Minnesota and North Dakota, 2019. After an unexpected series of events lands “Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon” (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. North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman (Hamm) has been searching for Dot for a long time. A rancher, preacher and a constitutional lawman, Roy believes that he is the law and therefore is above the law. At his side is his loyal but feckless son, Gator (Keery), who is desperate to prove himself to his larger-than-life father. Too bad he’s hopeless. So when it comes to hunting Dot, Roy enlists Ole Munch (Spruell), a shadowy drifter of mysterious origin.”
Rysdahl stars as Dot’s husband, Wayne, while Leigh plays Wayne’s mother Lorraine Lyon, the head of the largest debt collection agency in the country. Foley appears as Danish Graves, Lorraine’s in-house counsel and advisor. Moorjani plays Minnesota Police deputy Indira Olmstead, with Morris as North Dakota deputy Witt Farr.
Season 5 of “Fargo” will premiere on Nov. 21. The series hails from Noah Hawley, who serves as writer, director, showrunner, and executive producer via his production company, 26 Keys. Warren Littlefield also executive produces via The Littlefield Company. Steve Stark, Kim Todd, and Joel & Ethan Coen also executive produce. The series is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio and Amazon & MGM Studios Distribution overseeing international distribution.
