Fargo season 5: preview
It’s been three years since we last visited Fargo’s Midwestern milieu, and advance word suggests that it’ll be well worth the wait, with season 5 – starring Juno Temple, Jon Hamm, and Jennifer Jason Leigh – hailed as "darkly funny" and “a return to peak form”. We can’t wait to see it, and below we explain how to watch Fargo season 5 online – and for free in some places.
Based on the Coen Brothers 1996 film, Noah Hawley’s anthology series replicates the movie’s key ingredients – ordinary individuals on the wrong side of the law, hapless criminals, Midwestern setting, and buckets of sometimes shocking black humor.
Yet each new season presents a compellingly original story told using a unique, expertly judged A-list ensemble. Billy Bob Thornton manipulated Martin Freeman into doing terrible things in the show’s first season, while Chris Rock and Jason Schwartzman played the figureheads of two warring crime families set against the backdrop of 1950s Missouri.
The series’ fifth instalment – which Hawley gleefully admits leans more into the show’s comedy – will take place in Minnesota circa 2019. Juno Temple (Ted Lasso) plays as the ostensibly mild-mannered "Dot" Lyon, a housewife whose dangerous past life threatens to erupt into the present after she single-handedly overpowers two armed kidnappers.
Pursued by a former rival – sheriff and preacher Roy Tillman (Jon Hamm), aided by his inept son “Gator” (Stranger Things’ Joe Keery) – and drawing the attention of two North Dakota deputies (Lamorne Morris and Indira Olmstead) perplexed by the woman’s bizarre behavior, Lyon finds herself fighting to protect her family from a life she tried to leave behind.
Described by TV line as "a lean and mean, back-to-basics thrill ride packed with laughs and frights," catch every episode of the returning black comedy series with our guide below, which details how to watch Fargo season 5 online now and from anywhere in the world.
How to watch Fargo season 5 online in the US
The first two episodes of Fargo season 5 will debut on Tuesday, November 21 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT on the FX channel. There are 10 episodes in total, with the remainder being aired one per week until the finale on January 16, 2024.
If you already have FX then you're all set, but if you're a cord-cutter, we recommend Sling TV – specifically the Sling Blue package, which includes FX and currently includes a 50% off your first month offer.
Hulu subscribers can also watch FX live with a Hulu with Live TV plan (at $76.99 per month), or the following day on Hulu’s on-demand only service which starts at $7.99/month. There are a few Hulu plans and prices to choose from, however, it's only the basic plan that provides a whopping 30-day Hulu free trial.
