The year is 1979, the place is Luverne, Minnesota and mustacheless Nick Offerman warns that things are about to spiral for everyone featuring in the Fargo season 2 preview. The new trailer shows off some of the major players and there are plenty of familiar faces; so while I am sad there will be no Allison Tolman, there’s a whole lot of Jesse Plemons to enjoy and it looks like he will be taking the role of accidental and hapless criminal.
Let’s take a moment to take delve into the costuming and the 1970s is a style decade favorite of mine so when I heard this season would be set in 1979 I was thrilled; this trailer does not disappoint and had me clapping with glee throughout at the excellent array of knitwear, synthetic fur lined coats and garish designs. Oh hey Cristin Milioti!
The real costuming star is Kirsten Dunst and I have a deep affinity with Dunst thanks to a teen repeat watching diet of The Virgin Suicides, Bring it On and Drop Dead Gorgeous. I am pleased to see her return to TV after a long time away (she previously had an arc on ER as a homeless teen Doug Ross tried to help as well as various other early roles).
More outwear and layered excellence; even though it is really warm right now this has me yearning for knee high brown boots and a not so incognito attempt at incognito attire.
