If you haven’t watched the acclaimed second season of Fargo, turn away now. If you have, reminisce about the glorious second season of the Coen Brothers-inspired series with a tongue-in-cheek “In Memoriam” video that adds some poignancy to the pools of bloodshed.
The montage doesn’t feature a complete recap of this season’s body count – Rye Gerhardt’s diner victims, the Gerhardt clan’s foot soldiers and Kansas City mobsters slain in the wintery forest, the cops killed at the Sioux Falls motel massacre and even the poor gas station attendant all get snubbed – but it’s a loving reminder of one of the 25 Best TV shows of 2015. “Ah jeez, we’re sure gonna miss ya,” the video says in closing.
In November, FX renewed Fargo for a third season, with series creator Noah Hawley promising an “all-new” storyline when the show returns, although it’s unclear whether that means the story will start from scratch or if, like Season Two, it’s a plot that bore out of the first season’s storyline.
The second season of Fargo scooped up three nominations at the 2016 Golden Globes: Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture plus acting nods for Kirsten Dunst and Patrick Wilson.
