A woman’s been murdered in a Luverne, Minnesota Waffle Hut sometime in the 1970s, and it’s got everyone in the area afraid, confused, excited, vengeful, or all of the above. That’s just about all the plot we’re given in the excellent trailer for the second season of Fargo, but I think it’s all we need.
Based on the anthology series’ unexpectedly brilliant first season, this is a show—much like the film that inspired it—that finds twisted glee in the twists and turns of its narrative. Patrick Wilson and Cristin Milioti are caught in the middle of a murder mystery, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons are about to attend a Lifespring seminar, Jean Smart may be the matriarch of a Midwestern crime family, and—you know what?—I’ll stop trying to make sense of any of this. It looks great and I can’t wait to be surprised and delighted by every single episode.
