The first full look at season 2 of 'Fargo'

Share story

The trailer for the second season of "Fargo" is here, full of slow-talking small town cops, white-gray skies, and '70s fashion.

Oh, and the accents? You betcha.

The second season is only loosely connected to the first, which was set in present-day Bemidji, Minn., and Duluth. 

This season is set in Luverne, Minn., and Sioux Falls, S.D., in 1979. Patrick Wilson plays police officer Lou Solverson, who we saw an older version of in season one — the wise and kindly diner owner and father to Molly Solverson, the hero of the first season.

It's still too early to judge the accents, but we know Kirsten Dunst started working on hers in 1999 when she starred in "Drop Dead Gorgeous," which was set and filmed in Minnesota.

Even though the show takes place in Minnesota, it is not filmed here, but rather in Calgary, Alberta. We can hope this time around they'll digitally remove the mountains in post-production.
