Ready for a closer look at season 2 of Fargo?
Here are two new photos that give you a better idea of the new characters populating FX’s acclaimed anthology drama, which rolls back the clock this fall to 1979. Above is beautician Peggy Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst) and her devoted butchers assistant husband Ed (Jesse Plemons). On the surface, they’re the “normal” ones—until Peggy gets them pulled into a gangland war. “I have such an awesome arc to play, it’s like a 10-hour movie,” Dunst tells EW. “It really escalates.” As Peggy’s supportive and somewhat dim husband, Plemons will shed his creepy “Ricky Hitler” persona from Breaking Bad. “He’s unfortunately, or fortunately, madly devoted to his wife,” Plemons says.
Below, is the Blumquists along with local crime matriarch Floyd Gerhardt (Jean Smart), state cop Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson, playing a decades-younger version of the character who was introduced in the show’s first season and played by Keith Carradine)and Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson).
