FXM will air the Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning first installment of FX’s limited series Fargo on October 11, the day before the premiere of the highly-anticipated second installment.
The Fargo marathon will air all 10 episodes in sequence beginning at 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT and feature a commercial-free exhibition of the first episode, “The Crocodile’s Dilemma.”
An adaptation of the classic Academy Award® winning feature film of the same title by Joel & Ethan Coen, the first installment of Fargo features Oscar® winner Billy Bob Thornton as “Lorne Malvo,” a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman “Lester Nygaard,” played by BAFTA® and Emmy winner Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy “Gus Grimly,” a single dad who is forced to choose between his personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as “Molly Solverson,” an ambitious Bemidji deputy.
The all-new second installment of Fargo, which premieres on FX on October 12 at 10 PM ET/PT, follows a young State Trooper (Patrick Wilson) and his Sheriff father-in-law (Ted Danson) as they investigate a grizzly case involving a local crime family and a major mob syndicate, and a small town beautician (Kirsten Dunst) and her husband (Jesse Plemons) who inadvertently get caught in the middle.
