Each season, the series will be set in a different era and will follow a new story with new characters, limited to 10 episodes per season. The series is set in the same fictional universe as the film with a number of references made connecting the series to the film. Although each episode begins with the superimposed text: "This is a true story", this claim is completely fictional. This show offers dark humor with odd twists.
FX announced today that Fargo will be returning for a fifth season. The good news comes more than a year after the critically-acclaimed anthology drama aired Season 4. The pickup doesn't come as a huge surprise, though, as the cable network has been hinting about a return of the show for a while now.
No release date or casting information is known about Season 5, but it will be set in 2019. No real plot information has been revealed, other than a teaser that it will involve a kidnapping that is not really a kidnapping.
