The second installment of the Fargo miniseries is beginning to take shape, as the sparkling new cast has added Cristin Milioti – best known as (spoiler alert) the “Mother” in How I Met Your Mother – alongside newcomers Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson, reports Deadline.

The program, which again will be loosely connected to the classic Coen brothers movie of the same name, will include 10 episodes following the new story set in 1979. In the latest chapter, young police officer Lou Solverson (Wilson) is just returning from Vietnam, and is thrown into a big new case. Milioti will play the recurring character of his wife, who is also the daughter of Rock County Sheriff Hank Larsson, played by Danson. Given her background, the character will be one part tough cookie (can you be anything but as the daughter of a cop?) and one part Holly homemaker.

Joel and Ethan Coen will again be signing on to executive produce, while Noah Hawley, who brought the new chapter of the Fargo universe to life, will direct, and executive produce alongside the brothers Coen. Also serving as exec producers are Warren Littlefield (MGM Television) and John Cameron (FX Productions).

The new cast will have big shoes to fill – the first installment garnered a slew of award nominations thanks to brilliant turns from Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Martin Freeman, and new comer Alison Tolman, and Thornton won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards for his role.

The second season of Fargo will film in Calgary, Alberta and is scheduled to premiere some time in the Fall.
