New Fargo Season 3 Teaser Has Unfathomable Pinheadery

A couple of weeks ago, we got our first look at some of the characters in the new season of Fargo. The new teaser brings almost the whole new cast to the screen for a quick introduction and – in the words of Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Nikki Swango – some "unfathomable pinheadery".

The new season appears to hew even closer to the original Coen brothers film, while still remaining its own thing thanks to the creativity of show boss Noah Hawley and his team.

This year, the story partly focuses on Emmit and Ray Stussy, both played by Ewan McGregor. Emmit is handsome, confident and has conquered the real estate market in Minnesota. Younger brother Ray, on the other hand, is a flabby parole officer who blames his sibling for his bad luck. We see both of them in the new teaser, alongside Winstead's Nikki, a crafty and alluring recent parolee.

Carrie Coon, meanwhile, is Gloria Burgle, a practical woman who grabs the fire extinguisher when the bacon catches fire and everyone else panics. The chief of police in Edna Valley and a newly divorced mother, she struggles to understand this new world around her where people connect more intimately with their phones than the people directly in front of them.

Add to that the gloriously named likes of Michael Stuhlbarg‘s Sy Feltz and David Thewlis‘ V.M. Vargas, and you have quite the assortment. Fargo will be back on US screens on 19 April, with the show due to return to Channel 4 in the UK shortly after that.
