AW, GEEZ, FX IS GOING BACK TO "FARGO"

Noah Hawley Returns with New Limited-Series From MGM Television and FX Productions

LOS ANGELES, July 21, 2014 - Get your snow gear ready, FX is headed back to Fargo! Executive Producer and Writer Noah Hawley is moving forward with a second installment of the multiple Emmy(R)-nominated miniseries from MGM Television and FX Productions, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks & FX Productions.

The new chapter of the Fargo story will feature an all-new cast of characters, a new time period and a new "true crime" story that will unfold over the course of 10 episodes.

"We could not be more proud of Fargo," said Landgraf. "Noah's audacious, bordering on hubristic riff on my favorite Coen brothers film earned 18 Emmy nominations - the most for a single program in our history. Fargo was nothing short of breathtaking and we look forward to the next installment."

An original adaptation of the Academy Award(R)-winning feature film, FX's Fargo has been nominated for 18 Emmys, including Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries or Movie for Executive Producer Noah Hawley, Outstanding Lead Actor nominations for Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman, Outstanding Supporting Actor for Colin Hanks, Outstanding Supporting Actress for newcomer Allison Tolman, and two Outstanding Directing noms, one for Adam Bernstein and one for Colin Bucksey.

The first installment of Fargo features an all-new "true crime" story and follows a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" that made the film an enduring classic. Oscar(R) winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as "Lorne Malvo," a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman "Lester Nygaard," played by BAFTA Award(R) winner and Emmy(R)-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy "Gus Grimly," a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as "Molly Solverson," an ambitious Bemidji deputy. Fargo is written by Noah Hawley. Hawley, Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen and Geyer Kosinski serve as executive producers.

Fargo is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions.
