Fargo Season 3 Teasers
There’s a new Fargo Season 3 teaser, don’tcha know? In it, someone with an ironic ringtone receives a call that they’re likely going to miss. View for yourself below:
There’s a whole crop of Fargo Season 3 teasers, and in them we get to meet the handsome Ewan McGregor brother Emmit after meeting Ray in our previous look (McGregor will be playing two characters in the season). The other two new glimpses give us more time with Carrie Coon’s police chief Gloria Burgle, who has some electronic appliances in her path in both videos. Check out those and all of the Fargo Season 3 teasers below, which we’ll keep adding as they’re release:
We also have a season three synopsis:
Set in 2010, the third season centers on “Emmit” and his slightly younger brother “Ray Stussy” (both played by Ewan McGregor). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat competitive bridge. Carrie Coon stars as “Gloria Burgle,” the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Ray’s girlfriend, “Nikki Swango,” a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. David Thewlis stars as “V.M. Vargas,” a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit, whether “The Parking Lot King” likes it or not.
The brains behind TV’s best film adaptation was profiled in GQ. Read about Noah Hawley’s ambitions, details on season three from the set, and the show’s future here.

Here’s everything else we know about Fargo season 3…
Fargo Season 3 Release Date:
Fargo season 3 will premiere on Wednesday, April 19th at 10 p.m. ET.
Fargo Season 3 Cast:
Fargo has delivered impressive casts so far and continues to do so for season three.
Carrie Coon will play the female lead in Fargo season 3, Variety reported. The Midwestern series created by the Coen brothers consistently writes great parts for the lead women. Allison Tolman played Molly Solverson in Fargo season 1. Kirstin Dunst was nominated for a Golden Globe for her turn as the ambitious housewife Peggy Blumquist in the second season.
In the FX anthology series, Coon (Gone Girl) will play Gloria Burgle, “a practical woman who grabs the fire extinguisher when the bacon catches fire and everyone else panics,” according to the official synopsis. “Gloria is the chief of the Eden Valley police, and a newly divorced mother, who is struggling to understand this new world around her where people connect more intimately with their phones than the people right in front of them.”
As for the male lead, Fargo’s producers like Ewan McGregor so much that they’ve cast him twice.
The former Obi-Wan has been cast in the starring role of FX’s anthology drama to play a pair of (non-twin) brothers. Via EW, here’s McGregor’s character description:
“Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, Emmit sees himself as an American success story. His slightly younger brother, Ray Stussy, on the other hand is more of a cautionary tale. Balding, pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school. Now a parole officer, Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.”
McGregor’s involvement marks yet another film actor making the medium crossover to television, where FX seems to be the popular landing spot.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is enjoying a second wind to her acting career. Her performance in the surprise (literally a surprise) hit 10 Cloverfield Lane earned her rave reviews. Now she’s joined the cast of Fargo.
THR reports that Winstead will play Nikki Swango, “a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge playing. She is a woman with a plan who is focused on always being at least one move ahead of her opponents.” The role on Fargo is contingent on Winstead’s availability… which seems open now that her CBS series BrainDead was cancelled.
Also joining Winstead in Fargo season 3 is Scoot McNairy, who currently stars in AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire.McNairy will have an unspecified recurring role.
Jim Gaffigan is the latest star to get a series regular nod for Fargo season 3. Gaffigan is set to play Donny Mashman, “a police deputy who works alongside Gloria Burgle,” (played by Carrie Coon of The Leftovers and Gone Girl fame).
The comedian most recently was seen on the TV Land series, The Jim Gaffigan Show, which he starred in and produced along with his wife Jeannie, who was the series’ showrunner. The couple decided to end the series after season two to spend time with their family.
David Thewlis (Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter franchise) joins Fargo season 3 to play V.M. Vargas, “a mysterious loner and true capitalist who delivers Emmit (star Ewan McGregor), the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, the bad news that he has just become partners with his employers, whose business interests lay outside the law.”
According to an official press release, Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire) will play “Sy Feltz,” Emmit’s right hand man and consigliere.
