The first trailer for season 3 of Fargo revealed all of the key players (Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis, Ewan McGregor x 2) and their key situations, while remaining relatively vague about what those situations, indeed, are. FX just released a second trailer whose length doubles the first; it doesn’t spoil much (and thus also doesn’t reveal much else plot-wise), but it does fill in some of the characters.
What we know: One Ewan McGregor is a long-haired balding parole officer who has a rivalry with his non-balding curly-haired also-Ewan-McGregor brother, who’s a shining success story — at least in the Minnesota parking lot industry, of which he’s been deemed king. Said king, Emmit Stussy, is currently doing business (seemingly not so much voluntarily) with a frightening-teethed capitalist played by David Thewlis — looking very much like someone you wouldn’t want to do business with unless you didn’t fear being eviscerated in a Fargo-y fashion. Ray Stussy, the balding McGregor, is romantically involved with Nikki Swango, a parolee with a penchant for gambling, which results in petty theft and then results in a brutal murder — but since this is Fargo, perhaps there will be more of those. Gloria Burgle, a police chief played by Carrie Coon, looks to remain on the outskirts of these plot lines, but her job will likely lead her to the center of it all.
Here’s the extended trailer for the season, which debuts on April 19:
