An unsuspecting housewife causes a stir when she immaculately defends herself from home invaders. What could she be hiding in this season?
FX has just released the trailer for season five of its hit series, Fargo, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter. The show is due to premiere on FX this fall on Tuesday, November 21, at 10 pm ET/PT. The trailer showcases a plot that there may be an underlying secret with a seemingly normal housewife that is set to reach a boiling point. The cast this season includes such big stars as Jon Hamm, Juno Temple, Dave Foley, Joe Keery, Sam Spruell, David Rysdahl, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Richa Moorjani, and Lamorne Morris. Fargo‘s fifth season from showrunner, Noah Hawley, will feature only ten episodes compared to last season, which featured one additional episode.
FX’s official synopsis (and a long one at that) reads,
“After an unexpected series of events lands ‘Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon’ (Temple) in hot water with the authorities, this seemingly typical Midwestern housewife is suddenly plunged back into a life she thought she had left behind. North Dakota Sheriff ‘Roy Tillman’ (Jon Hamm) has been searching for Dot for a long time. A rancher, preacher and a constitutional lawman, Roy believes that he is the law and therefore is above the law. At his side is his loyal but feckless son, ‘Gator’ (Joe Keery), who is desperate to prove himself to his larger-than-life father. Too bad he’s hopeless. So when it comes to hunting Dot, Roy enlists ‘Ole Munch’ (Sam Spruell), a shadowy drifter of mysterious origin. With her deepest secrets beginning to unravel, Dot attempts to shield her family from her past, but her doting, well-meaning husband ‘Wayne’ (David Rysdahl) keeps running to his mother, ‘Lorraine Lyon’ (Jennifer Jason Leigh), for help. CEO of the largest Debt Collection Agency in the country, the ‘Queen of Debt’ is unimpressed with her son’s choice in a wife and spares no opportunity to voice her disapproval. However, when Dot’s unusual behavior catches the attention of Minnesota Police Deputy ‘Indira Olmstead’ (Richa Moorjani) and North Dakota Deputy ‘Witt Farr’ (Lamorne Morris), Lorraine appoints her in-house counsel and primary advisor, ‘Danish Graves’ (Dave Foley), to aid her daughter-in-law. Afterall, family is family. But Dot has an uncanny knack for survival. And with her back to the wall, she’s about to show why one should never provoke a mother Lyon.”
