‘Fargo’ Season 2 Begins Tonight on FX

Fargo

The second installment of “Fargo,” FX’s critically acclaimed original series, premieres tonight at 9 p.m. CT. While the setting will remain in a small town, this season’s plot and cast will follow a new murder case involving a local crime family and a major mob syndicate.

“If the first four episodes are a fair indication, ‘Fargo’ has once again succeeded brilliantly, with a second series that is linked to the first and yet stands triumphantly on its own,” writes USA Today TV critic Robert Bianco.

FX is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
