FX has released an official trailer for the Second Season of the acclaimed crime anthology series "Fargo," which is taking place in the year 1979, exploring the early years of Minnesota State Patrolman Lou Solverson (played by Patrick Wilson, of "The Conjuring" and "Watchmen" fame) who finds himself in the "right place" but at the "wrong time" when investigating a botched robbery that ended with a murder and a boat load of unanswered questions.

Ted Danson co-stars as Sheriff Hank Larsson, Lou's mentor and boss. Kirsten Dunst plays local beautician Peggy Blomquist, who gets in over her head when pursuing a better future for her and her working-class husband (Jesse Plemons). Jean Smart is the unflappable mother of two wanted and dangerous criminals (Jeffrey Donovan and Kieran Culkin). While Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, Bokeem Woodbine, Cristin Milioti and Angus Sampson round out the cast of the new season, which will feature Bruce Campbell as Ronald Reagan, at least in poster form.

Created by showrunner Noah Hawley, the ten-episode season two of "Fargo" is now set to premiere in October.

The all new "true crime" case in Fargo's latest chapter takes you back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota.

"Lou Solverson" (Patrick Wilson), a young State Police Officer recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang, a major mob syndicate and a small town beautician "Peggy Blumquist" (Kirsten Dunst) along with her husband "Ed" (Jesse Plemons), the local butcher's assistant. Helping Lou piece things together is his father-in-law, "Sheriff Hank Larsson" (Ted Danson). The investigation will lead them to a colorful cast of characters that includes "Karl Weathers" (Nick Offerman), the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota. A Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist.

Three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett will play "Joe Bulo," the front man for the northern expansion of a Kansas City crime syndicate. The new face of corporate crime, Joe's bringing a Walmart mentality to small town America. His number two is "Mike Milligan" (Bokeem Woodbine). Part enforcer, part detective, Mike is always smiling -- but the joke is usually on you. Bulo and his crew have their sights set on the Gerhardt crime family in Fargo, currently led by matriarch "Floyd Gerhardt" (Jean Smart). With her husband at death’s door, Floyd takes over the family business, frustrating her eldest son, "Dodd Gerhardt" (Jeffrey Donovan). An impatient hothead with a cruel streak to match his ambitions, Dodd can’t wait for both his parents to die so he can take over and expand their business from kingdom to empire. "Bear Gerhardt" (Angus Sampson) is the middle son, an intimidatingly large man who, although inarticulate, is the most decent of his clan. "Rye Gerhardt" (Kieran Culkin), the youngest of the Gerhardt clan, views himself as a big shot, but in reality he’s just a small dog with a loud bark.
