Watch a '70s murder mystery unfold in the first trailer for Fargo season 2

The first season of FX's Fargo soared to critical acclaim last year, taking the atmosphere and darkly comic tone of the original Coen brothers film and pouring it over a new murder mystery somewhere in the midwest. The second season looks like a return to that world — only this time the mystery is set in 1979.

Showrunner Noah Hawley is clearly building an anthology series à la American Horror Story with this show. This new outing features a whole new cast of characters, with stars like Kirsten Dunst and Ted Danson filling the roles of chipper town locals and clueless cops. And what starts off as a single murder soon starts to spin out of control. We're looking forward to it. Fargo season 2 premieres this October.
