Fargo-5

Black tragicomedy “Fargo” returns to the screens? The plot of season 4 was even more twisted, there were everyone’s favorite jokes that are sometimes so hard to see under the guise of indignation of the main characters. Who will be the center of the story this time? Is it worth spending your time watching? What to expect from season 5 and will it be?

“Fargo ss 5”: release date, announcement

The continuation of the TV show “Fargo” has no official confirmation. Since the coronavirus pushed the season 4 show indefinitely, the creators decided to postpone the launch of season 5. And freeze all plans for the continuation of the project.

There is no opportunity to start shooting yet. But in the case of the production of new episodes, the end of 2021 will be marked by the premiere of season 5 of the “Fargo” show.

Plot

Each season of the series is determined by an individual plot, which is associated with another one with only a few facts. In season 1, it was about the loser Lester Nygaard, who was so not respected by others that even former classmates could hit him when they met him on the street. At the same time, the last meeting with classmates took place a long time ago, and Lester is already more than 40 years old.

One day, Lester meets the mysterious Lorne Malvo, who offers him to kill the offender – a classmate. In a fit of emotion, Lester agrees to such an offer. But in the end, when Lorne does his job, Lester begins to deny his involvement. And after a while, he himself kills his wife, feeling a strange sense of satisfaction.

Season 2 was a prequel to the first one, and talked about the cops that were featured in season 1. It was a crime investigation at a time when police officers were still young. All this happened back in 1979 in the state of South Dakota. This was often discussed in season 1, which created a certain intrigue in the second one.

In season 3, two twin brothers become the center of history. Emmit Stussy owns parking lots throughout Minnesota, he loves his own life, which he spends on pleasure. The guy does not think about anything, because he has everything he once dreamed about. His brother Ray is the exact opposite. Moody and pessimistic. He works as a warden in a prison and is constantly doing bad things.

For the season 4, the main characters were the leaders of criminal gangs who decided to join forces to take control of smuggling and drug trafficking. To do this, they decided to exchange sons. But everything went wrong when one of the leaders dies. Now they will have to build the story in a different way, but to the end it is not known which one.

Screenwriters are stubbornly silent when it comes to season 5 and refuse to give the audience even a synopsis, hiding all the events. Undoubtedly, the new season is worth watching. But we need to wait for official information on the continuation of the project.
