    Juno Temple (Ted Lasso) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) are set to headline the fifth season of FX's anthology series Fargo alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh (Atypical).

    The three will play characters named Dot, Roy, and Lorraine, respectively. Little information has been provided by show creator Noah Hawley about the plot of Season 5, but the new season will be set in 2019, making it the most modern iteration of Fargo to date. Deadline reports Season 5 will answer the questions, "When is a kidnapping not a kidnapping?" and "What if your wife isn’t yours?"

    Previous seasons of Fargo have featured stars including Billy Bob Thornton, Kirsten Dunst, Ewan McGregor, Chris Rock, Jesse Plemons, and many more. Each season is set in or around Minnesota and depicts a different set of characters dealing with deception, intrigue, and murder. Although every season is unique, they all tie back to Fargo, North Dakota.

    Seasons 1-4 of Fargo are available to stream on Hulu.
