Fargo drops season 5 teaser with Ted Lasso starFX

Fargo season 5 has dropped a first teaser – or should we say taser – ahead of its arrival this November.

Created by Noah Hawley, who's also creating a new Alien TV series for FX, the fifth instalment of the acclaimed crime-caper anthology brings in the likes of Juno Temple (Ted Lasso), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Jennifer Jason Leigh (Annihilation), Joe Keery (Stranger Things) and Sam Spruell (Doctor Who) for another dose of Minnesotan mayhem.

In the brief footage provided in the 'Homemaker' teaser, we see Temple's character Dorothy Lyon on the phone to her husband Wayne, as she stirs a pan on the stove.

However, the doorbell rings and reveals her deadly nature. Dot not only arms herself with a pistol in her apron pocket, but she also prepares a stun gun and arms herself with a modified baseball bat – pausing only to taste the sauce she's been making.

As for the storyline, it's been known for some time that Dot will be on the run from law enforcement, unknown to Wayne, with sheriff Roy Tillman (Hamm) and his son Gator (Keery) on her tail.

Her mother-in-law Lorraine (Leigh), who happens to be the CEO of America's largest debt collection agency, soon realises that Dot's days are numbered and decides to do everything in her power to protect the family's legacy.

In classic Fargo fashion, screwy-named side characters such as Ole Munch, Danish Graves and Witt Farr will come into play, too.

Previously teasing what fans can expect from Fargo's fifth outing, FX chairman John Landgraf told The Hollywood Reporter: "It's particularly comedic this year.

"It's always a balance between how dramatic versus comedic it is, and this is the more comedic end of the spectrum. I really love it."

Fargo season 5 premieres November 21 on FX and Hulu.
