"Melancholia" star Kirsten Dunst and "Breaking Bad" actor Jesse Plemons are now signed to headline the second season Noah Hawley's hit dark comedy-crime drama series "Fargo," according to reports.
Production for the second chapter of the TV program will begin in Calgary in January next year. Like the first, "Fargo" Season 2 will be comprised with 10 episodes and it will premiere next fall on FX, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The show's setting, as also said, will take place in Fargo, N.D., Sioux Falls, S.D., and Luverne, Minn.
The Hollywood Reporter, meanwhile, dished out more details on the sophomore show in which they said will revisit the 1979 Sioux incident which was actually discussed in Season 1's "A Fox, a Rabbit, and a Cabbage." During this time, Lou Solverson (Keith Carradine), Molly's (Allison Tolman) father was still a state trooper.
Per THR, Hawley mentioned that a new actor was called on to play the younger state trooper.
As for Dunst, she will be playing the character named Peggy Blomquist.
"A small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations. She shares her home with her husband Ed (Plemons), a butcher's assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife's self-discovery, even if he doesn't quite understand it," the report indicated.
Plemons, on the other hand, will play as Ed, Peggy's husband. He will be working as an assistant to a butcher. He is said to be quite supportive to his wife's "self-discovery."
Fargo is under the production of MGM Television and FX Productions.
