The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ Season 2 Trailer for FARGO

Honey Buzz ~ Season 2 Trailer for FARGO

With a decided shift in quality horror/thriller entertainment from film to television, many people are looking forward to new seasons and new instalments of shows that have continuously delivered. TV anthologies are also all the rage now... which begs the question - is it easier to scrap characters built over an entire season in favor of the ease of keeping things "fresh" or is this symptomatic of the audience and our limited attention span? Hmm. Deep thoughts.

Fargo's first season was one of those new shows that blew people out of the water - we all knew and loved the film, and seeing that Cohen style come to life was clearly well received, and the second season is looking to be just as explosive. We already know that Season 2 will be a blast from the past as we leave behind Molly Solverson's Fargo for the late 1970s, and her father Lou's point of view. The young Lou is reimagined through Patrick Wilson (shudder) and his father, a grizzled yet completely badass looking Ted Danson. Bruce Campbell is also scheduled to make an appearance as a pre-presidential Ronald Reagan, which might be interesting considering I'm not sure how well Bruce Campbell does at playing any character but himself...

Observation: there might be nothing as depressing as being the low man on a Kansas City crime syndicate totem pole. Seriously.



For those that have forgotten, here's a SUPER detailed synopsis: The all new “true crime” case of Fargo’s new chapter travels back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, where a young State Police Officer, Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson), recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang and a major Mob syndicate. Helping him piece things together is his father-in-law, Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson). The investigation will lead them to a colorful cast of characters that includes Karl Weathers (Nick Offerman), the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota. A Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist. Three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett will play Joe Bulo, the front man for the northern expansion of a Kansas City crime syndicate. The new face of corporate crime, Joe’s bringing a Walmart mentality to small town America. His number two is Mike Milligan (Bokeem Woodbine). Part enforcer, part detective, Mike is always smiling – but the joke is usually on you. Bulo and his crew have their sights set on the Gerhardt crime family in Fargo, currently led by matriarch Floyd Gerhardt (Amy Smart). With her husband at death’s door, Floyd takes over the family business, frustrating her eldest son, Dodd Gerhardt (Jeffrey Donovan). An impatient hothead with a cruel streak to match his ambitions, Dodd can’t wait for both his parents to die so he can take over and expand their business from kingdom to empire. Bear Gerhardt (Angus Sampson) is the middle son, an intimidatingly large man who, although inarticulate, is the most decent of his clan. Rye Gerhardt (Kieran Culkin), the youngest of the Gerhardt clan, views himself as a big shot, but in reality he’s just a small dog who barks big. 

I really missed that North Dakota accent for some reason.



Fargo returns to FX in September.
