Fargo has confirmed the release date for its fifth season along with a first look at the new batch of characters.

Noah Hawley's crime-comedy anthology will return to the small screen on November 21 (via IndieWire), with the stacked cast including Jon Hamm, Juno Temple, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Joe Keery.

The season will follow Dorothy Lyon (Temple), a Midwestern housewife with a mysterious past who is now on the run from law enforcement. She meets local sheriff Roy (Hamm) and his son Gator (Keery), whilst keeping a secret from husband Wayne (David Rysdahl) and mother-in-law Lorraine (Leigh).

Lorraine, the CEO of the largest Debt Collection Agency in the country, realises that forces are closing in on Dot, and begins to do everything she can to protect the family's legacy despite her daughter-in-law's crimes.

The season updates the setting close to the modern day, with the action taking place in Minnesota and North Dakota in 2019; it is currently unknown how many episodes there will be.

Previous seasons of Fargo have starred Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Jesse Plemons, Kirsten Dunst, Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Chris Rock and Jessie Buckley.

Despite the upcoming premiere of the fifth season, showrunner Hawley has previously teased that this could be the final instalment, previously revealing that he has been conceiving the conclusion.

"Yeah, I think so," he said of the possibility of creating an ending. "I don't have it yet. I have pieces that will have to survive. They're not connected. I think it would be good to create an ending, and deliberately come to something, knowing it's the last one and see how one might wrap up this anthology."

Fargo season 5 will premiere on FX and Hulu on November 21.
