"Fargo" Season 3 has been ordered and will return in 2016 with an all-new cast of characters and a new "true crime" story.

"Fargo" (TV show) on FX is a limited-run series, adapted by novelist/writer Noah Hawley from the award-winning film of the same title, that centers around an all-new "true crime" story. The series will follow a new case and new characters, all entrenched in the trademark humor, murder and "Minnesota nice" that has made the film an enduring classic.

Season 1

Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as Lorne Malvo, a rootless, manipulative man who meets and forever changes the life of small town insurance salesman Lester Nygaard, played by BAFTA Award winner and Emmy-nominated Martin Freeman. Colin Hanks plays Duluth Police Deputy Gus Grimly, a single dad who must choose between his own personal safety and his duty as a policeman when he comes face-to-face with a killer. Allison Tolman also stars as Molly Solverson, an ambitious Bemidji deputy. Other stars include Bob Odenkirk, Oliver Platt, Adam Goldberg, Kate Walsh, Glenn Howerton, Keith Carradine, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.

Season 2

The second installment travels back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota, where a young State Police Officer Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson), recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang and a major Mob syndicate. Helping him 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 who barks big.

Kirsten Dunst plays Peggy Blomquist, a small town beautician with big city dreams who is trying to figure out who she really is and what she really wants as she struggles with traditional societal expectations. She shares her home with her husband Ed (Jesse Plemons), a butcher's assistant, who wants to be supportive of his wife's self-discovery, even if he doesn't quite understand it.

Patrick Wilson plays Lou Solverson, a clean cut Minnesota State Patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband to his wife Betsy and father to four-year-old Molly. Ted Danson plays Hank Larsson, the Sheriff of Rock County, Minnesota. An unflappable WWII vet who embodies a certain cowboy poetry, Hank is Lou's father-in-law. Jean Smart plays Floyd Gerhardt, the matriarch of the Gerhardt crime family. She's stood by her husband's side for 40 years, but now that he's out of the picture she thinks it's her turn to run things.

Written by Noah Hawley ("The Unusuals," "My Generation") and executive produced by Hawley, Joel & Ethan Coen ("True Grit," "A Serious Man," "No Country for Old Men") and Warren Littlefield ("The Unusuals"), "Fargo" is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions. MGM Television is the lead studio and handles worldwide distribution of the series outside of the U.S. and Canada.

"Fargo," released in 1996, was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won for Best Original Screenplay for Joel & Ethan Coen and Best Actress for Frances McDormand. It was named as one of the 100 Greatest American Movies by the American Film Institute. A wildly unique blend of comedy, drama and thriller, the film starred Frances McDormand as a pregnant Minnesota police chief pursuing two bumbling criminals hired by a car salesman to kidnap his wife.
