Based on the classic Coen brothers film of the same name, the fan-favorite series focuses on stories of greed, crime, scandals and just plain stupidity that all ties back to the town of Fargo, North Dakota. Each season has its own self-contained storyline taking place in and around Minnesota along with a whole new cast.
The fifth season is set in 2019 in Minnesota and North Dakota. After an unexpected series of events lands Dorothy “Dot” Lyon (Juno Temple) in hot water with the authorities, this seemingly typical Midwestern housewife suddenly is plunged back into a life she thought she had left behind.
North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman (Jon Hamm) has been searching for Dot for a long time. A rancher, preacher and a constitutional lawman, Roy believes that he is the law and therefore is above the law.
At his side is his loyal but feckless son, Gator (Joe Keery), who is desperate to prove himself to his larger-than-life father. Too bad he’s hopeless. So when it comes to hunting Dot, Roy enlists Ole Munch (Sam Spruell), a shadowy drifter of mysterious origin.
With her deepest secrets beginning to unravel, Dot attempts to shield her family from her past, but her doting, well-meaning husband “Wayne” (David Rysdahl) keeps running to his mother, “Lorraine Lyon” (Jennifer Jason Leigh), for help. CEO of the largest Debt Collection Agency in the country, the “Queen of Debt” is unimpressed with her son’s choice in a wife and spares no opportunity to voice her disapproval.
However, when Dot’s unusual behavior catches the attention of Minnesota Police Deputy “Indira Olmstead” (Richa Moorjani) and North Dakota Deputy “Witt Farr” (Lamorne Morris), Lorraine appoints her in-house counsel and primary advisor, “Danish Graves” (Dave Foley) to aid her daughter-in-law. After all, family is family. But Dot has an uncanny knack for survival. And with her back to the wall, she’s about to show why one should never provoke a mother Lyon.
Cast for Season 5 includes Juno Temple, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Joe Keery who will play Gator Tillman, Lamorne Morris who play Witt Farr, Richa Moorjani who will play Indira Olmstead, David Rysdahl, Sam Spruell, Jessica Pohly, Nick Gomez, Dave Foley (The Kids in the Hall, The Morning Show) and Lukas Gage (The White Lotus, Euphoria).
