The second season will be more a prequel show that contains an almost entirely new cast- except for Lou Solverson. The show will move back in time to 1975 and take place in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and explore the harrowing events Lou mentioned in season1.
The plot details for the season are as follows:
Molly’s dad, diner owner Lou Solverson, tells Lorne Malvo that he’d left behind his state trooper job decades ago because of a ghastly incident that took place in Sioux Falls, involving bodies “stacked so high, you could’ve climbed to the second floor,” he said. “I’d call it animal except animals only kill for food.” Season two will follow the events leading up to that incident, picking up with Lou as a 33-year-old man recently back from Vietnam, and his four-year-old daughter Molly. (Alas, that means neither Keith Carradine nor Emmy nominee Allison Tolman will be returning.)
Add to that the return of Gus Grimley’s commander for a small role and this series sounds great. The 1970’s seems like an ideal setting for the look and feel of a Fargo based police style show
