What a treat for a grey, drizzly Monday morning (spring my arse) – Fargo has released a batch of new little teasers that warm the heart, raise a chuckle and whet the appetite for the imminent series three. And what delicious little treats they are. Fargo and its home network in the US – FX – do such a fantastic job of producing these little teasers, which are almost like little Fargo episodes in themselves. They show the Fargo world and give us what the show does best by mixing the macabre with the farcical. They’re brilliant, and they’re after the jump.
Not only is it a brilliant series, I just love the way US network FX stokes up publicity for its Coen brothers-influenced series, Fargo. More often than not, it releases the most intriguing and delicious little nugget-trailers. They don’t reveal much, but they’re so exquisitely made they set the mood perfectly. And, in fine Fargo style, FX has released a new teaser – no longer than 30 seconds, it still whets the appetite.
As long-time readers of the site will know, Fargo is one of my favourite series. With Noah Hawley and a cast that includes Ewan McGregor (in two roles), David Thewlis, Carrie Coon and Mary Elizabeth Wanstead series three is really starting to gear up. It usually transmits around the end of the year, but this time around FX (the show’s US network) sprung a surprise yesterday – series three will air in the spring. This spring.
