It's been almost exactly 18 years since Fargo premiered on April 5, 1996 and took audiences to the cold and quirky town of Fargo, North Dakota. An instant-classic courtesy of the permanently-poignant Joel and Ethan Coen, fans of film can journey back to the frozen town starting April 15 when FX premieres their adapted series Fargo for 10 episodes.
Starring Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks and Bob Odenkirk, the series looks to have a big-movie production feel to it. The show's story starts when Thornton's character drifts into Fargo, dragging chaos and violence in with him.
If you're wondering if CrimeHQ is excited about this new show, all we have to say to that is you're darned tootin'.
