The Fargo Season 5 trailer is here, starring Juno Temple as Dorothy “Dot” Lyon, a seemingly “typical Midwestern housewife” who is running from her past. Watch the full clip below.
At the beginning of the trailer, the police inform Dot’s husband Wayne (David Rysdahl) that his wife “isn’t who she says she is” while we see Dot fending off a home invasion with homemade traps, much like Kevin in Home Alone. Then, Wayne’s mother Lorraine Lyon, played by Jennifer Jason Leigh, calls Dot “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” before we get a glimpse at Jon Hamm’s Roy Tillman, a North Dakota Sheriff who’s been tracking Dot for quite a while. Tillman is joined by his son Gator (Joe Keery) and a drifter named Ole Munch (Sam Spruell).
The cast also features Richa Moorjani as Minnesota Police Deputy Indira Olmstead, Lamorne Morris as North Dakota Deputy Witt Farr, and Dave Foley as Lorraine Lyon’s consigliere. Noah Hawley is back as the showrunner, writer, and director. He shares executive producer duties with Warren Littlefield, Steve Stark, Kim Todd, and Joel and Ethan Coen.
“With her deepest secrets beginning to unravel, Dot attempts to shield her family from her past, but her doting, well-meaning husband Wayne keeps running to his mother, Lorraine Lyon for help,” reads the official logline. “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 and North Dakota Deputy Witt Farr, Lorraine appoints her in-house counsel and primary advisor, Danish Graves, 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.”
Fargo Season 5 will premiere with two episodes on Tuesday, November 21st at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on FX and stream on Hulu the following day.
