We are a little over a month away for the highly anticipated third season of FX's #Fargo and fans were given a beautiful surprise courtesy of the official Fargo Twitter account.
'Never Ignore The Warning Signs'
In a quick preview shared via Twitter, fans were given the first glimpse of #EwanMcGregor in the series. Thanks to the power of makeup, McGregor has been transformed into Ray Stussy, a balding parole officer who teams up with the upcoming star of Alien: Covenant, Mary Elizabeth Winstead‘s recent parolee Nikki Swango. McGregor will also play Emmit, a handsome real estate mogul who also happens to be Ray’s brother, and the person he blames for the way his life has turned out.

The duo is seen finishing up their meal and leaving a diner after noticing police officer Gloria Burgle, the recently divorced Chief of the Eden Valley Police, portrayed by The Leftovers' Carrie Coon. The sequence ends with an eerie "DIE" illuminating in the background:
The synopsis for the upcoming season, set a few years after the first season, is as follows:
Set in 2010, the third season centers on “Emmit” and his slightly younger brother “Ray Stussy” (both played by Ewan McGregor). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother’s shadow, Ray is a balding and pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat competitive bridge. Carrie Coon stars as “Gloria Burgle,” the steady chief of the local police department. A newly divorced mother, Gloria is trying to understand the new world around her, where people connect more intimately with their phones than with the people around them. Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Ray’s girlfriend, “Nikki Swango,” a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge. David Thewlis stars as “V.M. Vargas,” a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit, whether “The Parking Lot King” likes it or not.
Fargo Season 3 will premiere on Wednesday, April 19th at 10pm EST on #FX.
