Kirsten Dunst is best known for her film roles, but the blonde beauty will be moving to television next fall for the second season of Fargo.
The 10-episode arc will follow Dunst’s character, Peggy Blomquist, as she tries to figure out a way to move from a small-town beauty shop to the big city. Her husband, Ed, will be played by Jesse Plemons, best known to many as Todd from Breaking Bad.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the characters’ storyline is taken from an incident that occurred in 1979 which was referenced in the first season. Molly’s dad, Lou Solverson, will appear in the new season as a younger man who has just returned from Vietnam.
“He thought he left the war behind, but he came back and here it is, it’s domestic. We will meet Molly’s mother, who was not a character in season 1 … and we’ll learn what happened to her. There were a lot of clues left in the first season and we’ll do our best to hit those,” said showrunner Noah Hawley.
Fargo was a breakout hit for FX earlier this year and went on to be nominated for 18 Emmy Awards and won for Outstanding Miniseries. It is based on the cult classic 1996 film of the same name, which won an Oscar.
