Fargo returns to the small screens with season 5. The information was published yesterday on the official Facebook page of the television series.
The original concept behind “Fargo” was developed by the Coen Brothers in 1996 in the form of a feature film starring Frances McDormand and Steve Buscemi, among others. The film was so successful at the time that it was able to put Ethan and Joel Coen on the map of world cinema forever. Moreover, the film later became a cult, being appreciated even today by a considerable number of fans.
In the meantime, “Fargo” has turned into a series that did not disappoint, on the contrary, it followed the natural line established by what we could now call the “pilot film” from ’96.
The fifth season of “Fargo” will be closer to the Coen brothers’ concept
Although, apart from the fact that season 5 of “Fargo” will become a reality, we do not know many other details. What we do know is that in the future, we may be witnessing a return to the original concept of the Coen brothers. Specifically, the new season will feature many elements from the 1996 film.
The original film tells the story of Jerry Lundegaard (played by William H. Macy), a car salesman who devises a sinister plan: kidnapping his own wife to get money from her very rich father. As we can imagine, Jerry’s plan is doomed to failure, so along with this abduction we are dealing with many crimes, executed in the most bizarre way possible and for reasons of assent.
So, as far as we can tell, the new season of the “Fargo” series could include elements of it, or even repeat the story – it remains to be seen which of these hypotheses will become a reality.
Obviously, we may have to wait long enough to see it on the small screens, but the wait is well worth it. When it is released, season 5 of “Fargo” will be available for viewing on FX.
