The third season of Fargo, an American anthology black comedy–crime drama television series created by Noah Hawley, premiered on April 19, 2017, on the basic cable network FX. The season had ten episodes, and its initial airing concluded on June 21, 2017. As an anthology, each Fargo season possesses its own self-contained narrative, following a disparate set of characters in various settings, albeit in a connected shared universe.
The third season is set from December 2010 to March 2011 in three towns in Minnesota: St. Cloud, Eden Valley, and Eden Prairie and is the only season not to feature the titular Fargo, North Dakota. It followed the lives of a couple, Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor) and Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who, after unsuccessfully trying to rob Ray’s brother Emmit (also played by McGregor), become involved in a double murder case, including an old man with a mysterious past whose stepdaughter Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon) is a policewoman. Meanwhile, Emmit tries to cut his ties with a shady organization he borrowed money from two years prior, but the company, whose employees include V. M. Varga (David Thewlis) and Yuri Gurka (Goran Bogdan), has other plans.
