Full Trailer for Fargo season 2 teases snowballing crime problems

Luverne, Minnesota in 1979 doesn’t look like a great place to be, at least not in the Fargo universe. FX released a full trailer for season 2 of the black comedy-crime drama, and lawbreaking in the frigid town is set to snowball out of control.

The trailer opens with bodies at the town’s Waffle Hut, just as the young version of state police officer Lou Solverman (Patrick Wilson) and Sheriff Hank Larrson (Ted Danson) arrive to investigate. Their initial hunch is that it’s an isolated incident; as Lou tells another character, Karl Weathers (Nick Offerman), “Hank’s thinking botched robbery.” Karl isn’t convinced, and he foreshadows the problems to come, saying, “Oh, sure, that’s how it starts — with something small, like a break-in at the Watergate Hotel. But this thing’s only getting bigger.”

Innocent fun like bingo night quickly seems to fall by the wayside as increasingly scary, brutal things begin to happen, like an intruder attacking Ed Blomquist (Jesse Plemons) in the home he shares with wife Peggy (Kirsten Dunst). Though gruesome, the trailer also shows that Fargo season 2 will serve up dark humor along with its mysteries. When Dodd Gerhardt (Jeffrey Donovan) tries to extract information about his brother by cutting off his ears, he realizes that not hearing really limits the man’s ability to respond to questions — almost as much as being dead, which he also happens to be.

Fargo season 2 promises a lot of upheaval, even for “a normal, sweet Midwestern” like the Blomquists, shown below in a tweet from the show’s Twitter account.

It’s clear that the town’s law enforcement will have their work cut out for them, that’s for sure.

Fargo season 2 premiere on FX in October.
