‘Fargo' Season 3 Teaser Trailer Shoots Santa Claus

'Fargo' Season 3 premieres April 19. FX

With Legion on-air now and Fargo returning for Season 3 on April 19, it’s a good year for Noah Hawley fans. (He also writes novels, what’s with that guy?)

A new teaser trailer for Fargo Season 3 is here and while it won’t tell you anything about the plot, it does capture the combination of violence and folly that makes Fargo work. And Santa Claus gets shot.

It’s only 15 seconds long too. Bonus.

After the first season surprised the world — a Fargo show!? — subsequent seasons locked down some impressive casts. Season 2 had Kirsten Dunst, Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson. Season 3 will have Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan), Mary Elizabeth Winstead ( 10 Cloverfield Lane ), David Thewlis ( Naked ), Jim Gaffigan (food) and the fun-to-say Scoot McNairy.

Season 3 follows Ray and Emmit, brothers both played by McGregor. One’s the Parking Lot King of Minnesota and the other is a failure. Sibling rivalry leads to the Fargo usual: murder, crime, sociopaths and innocent victims.

On the side of law is Gloria Burgle, an old-fashioned woman trying to understand the modern world and probably in possession of a large stock of homespun Midwest wisdom.

But it’s Thewlis character, V.M. Vargas, who sounds most intriguing. The official Fargo Season 3 synopsis describes him as “a mysterious loner and true capitalist whose bosses plan to partner with Emmit, whether The Parking Lot King likes it or not.

It always comes down to parking.

Fargo Season 3 premieres April 19.
