There is no official announcement regarding the outline of the upcoming installment from FX. However, according to Newsweek, tFargo Season 5 will be reportedly set in a world that has not been affected by the pandemic, and it will focus on an intricate kidnapping.

The short synopsis of the season reads (courtesy of Newsweek), “Fargo has travelled through decades, cities and families, and the fifth instalment will be no different: Set in 2019, when is a kidnapping not a kidnapping, and what if your wife isn’t yours?”

“It’s particularly comedic this year. It’s always a balance between how dramatic versus comedic it is, and this is the more comedic end of the spectrum. I really love it, “ the Emmy-winning showrunner, American producer, director, and writer Noah Hawley mentioned to The Hollywood Reporter.

In addition to this, Fargo Season 5 will be set in the upper Midwest, and according to Hawley, Dot, whose role is reprised by Temple, will be a “housewife with a secret.”

Since the filming process is yet to begin, there is no official trailer for Fargo Season 5 as of yet.
