The 1996 Coenn brothers crime drama Fargo brought to light the seedy underbelly of the midwest. Just below the ice rinks, charming accents, and pot lucks full of hot dish, lies a grizzly layer of true crime. In 2014, Noah Hawley revisited the universe, this time for the small screen.
Ever season introduces new heroes and villains in and around North Dakota and Minnesota. Season one took place in 2007, season two in 1979, and three in 2010. Season 4 will be far flung when it comes to location and time, taking place in Kansas City, Missouri in 1950.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Fargo.

What the critics are saying:
- “Through scene after scene, Fargo crackles with mordant wit and sustained tension. And yet, wisely, Hawley always finds a way to remind us of what’s at risk…. The cast is spectacular, with nary a false note.” –Robert Bianco, USA Today
- “The second season of Fargo is just as fantastic as the first. And viewers who didn’t catch the first season can easily slide into the second. Some nuances will be lost, but those are minor compared to how good this series is…. Hawley and his writers’ greatest strength is incredible control of tone and atmosphere.” –Molly Eichel, Philadelphia Enquirer
