It’s officially confirmed! Netflix hit series “Stranger Things” star Joe Keery is joining the cast of Fargo in the upcoming fifth season along with Lamorne Morris (New Girl) and Richa Moorjani (Never Have I Ever) who’re both been cast for season 5. Fans are also excited to see the recently confirmed lead roles, Juno Temple, Jon Hamm, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
As of now, FX has not disclosed important character elements but Keery will portray the role of a man named Gator Tillman. Morris will portray Witt Farr, and Moorjani will illustrate Indira Olmstead. The series has journeyed through years and years, families and cities, and the fifth season will not be any different, according to the press release. Taking place in 2019, the main question of the fifth installment will be: “When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?”
Showrunner and executive producer Noah Hawley recently revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he already had a “germination of an idea” for the next season following the fourth season’s finale, but in actual Fargo setup. Hawley did not reveal much. “I don’t know where this thing goes or where it ends,” he said. “I certainly don’t want to overstay my welcome. I’m sure there are some people who think that four seasons are too many.”
“I have the germination of an idea, but there’s a lot of work that has to be done to make sure it’s worthy,” he added. “Fargo has never really been a story where ‘this happens, then this happens, then this happens.’ There’s a lot more that goes into it, and the bar is high, and I certainly have no desire to be the last guy at the dance going, ‘Oh, it’s still good,” he summed up.
Earlier seasons of the much popular FX’s black comedy crime drama thriller series have also featured Chris Rock, Billy Bob Thornton, Jesse Plemons, Kirsten Dunst, Bob Odenkirk, and Ewan McGregor, amongst many others.
Fargo” first debuted on FX on April 15, 2014, and has so far released a total of four seasons with the fifth season set to be released sometime soon. Noah Hawley conceived Fargo, also serving as executive producer and director. The production companies are MGM Television and FX Productions. It’s also worth mentioning that Fargo was nominated for 55 Emmy Awards throughout its course, and won six including a win in the category of the best miniseries for Season one in 2014.
