Over the past month, we’ve seen two trailers for the upcoming season of Fargo debut online, showcasing Ewan McGregor deceivingly different twins.

Thanks to a new 30-second clip, we have finally been introduced to other key members of the cast, including Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and David Thewlis.

Notably, the 30-second clip features the first dialogue from the new season, and - as expected - the Minnesota accent is heavily featured.

Details on the third season of Noah Hawley's anthology series are scarce, but it's known that McGregor will play brothers Emit and Ray Stussey.

“Emmit Stussy is the Parking Lot King of Minnesota. A handsome, self-made, real estate mogul and family man, Emmit sees himself as an American success story,“ reads the character description.

“His slightly younger brother, Ray Stussy, on the other hand, is more of a cautionary tale. Balding, pot-bellied, Ray is the kind of guy who peaked in high school.

“Now a parole officer, Ray has a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt, and he blames his brother, Emmit, for his misfortunes.”

The season - set in 2010 - also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Scoot McNairy, Shea Whigham, Fred Melamed, and Hamish Linklater.

Fargo season three will return in the US on 19 April with a UK release on Channel 4 to follow. Hawley’s other TV series, X-men spinoff Legion, is currently airing to rave reviews.
