FX confirms fifth season of Fargo

Series four of Fargo may not have been up to the standards of its first three instalments, but FX today delighted fans of the Coen brothers’ spin-off with news that it had been renewed for another season.

The US network took to Twitter to break the news.

Fargo has always boasted a superb ensemble cast for its anthology stories. In the first series we saw Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton; in series two Kirsten Dunst; in series three Ewan McGregor and David Thewlis; and in the last series we saw Chris Rock, Jessie Buckley and a host of others.

However, nothing is known about a cast but the news that it is coming back for a fifth run will delight many.

As for plot, The Hollywood Reporter says: “The fifth season will be set in 2019, in keeping with a pattern of seasons set in the recent past alternating with ones that take place further back in time. Per FX, it will tackle the following questions: ‘When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?’
