“Ya don’t say?” FX has released another teaser for its new limited series Fargo, inspired by the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film of the same name, and it looks just as full of ice, accents, and crime.

The preview begins with Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) — who plays insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, looking like he has been punched in the face — Billy Bob Thornton, who plays mysterious drifter Lorne Malvo, sitting together in a hospital waiting room. “What a day,” Lester says, in that classic Midwestern drawl. Among the clip’s highlights is Private Practice alum Kate Walsh, playing former stripper and mother Gina Hess, creepily smoking and singing with pleasure about her dead husband.

Though it’s unrelated to the film and features several new characters and plots, the TV series touches on the same core themes. Its cast also includes Colin Hanks as police deputy Gus Grimly, Oliver Platt as Stavros Milos, Adam Goldberg as Mr. Numbers, and Comedy Central’s Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as FBI partners Bill Budge and Webb Pepper, respectively. Check out the preview below:

Fargo premieres April 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.

Inspired by the 1996 Coen brothers film, ‘Fargo’ is a “true crime” story set in small-town Minnesota. A chance meeting between mild-mannered insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) and drifter Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) sets into motion a series of dark events that involves murder, blackmail, and the mob.
