Few TV series have captured the pop culture and Internet zeitgeist in 2014 like HBO’s True Detective. Everyone was talking about it, theorizing about it, picking apart its every set detail, and then some.But when it comes to actually earning awards, True Detective has been as quiet as any series out there
The first season of Fargo was incredible. It generated nominations. It generated critical acclaim, and perhaps most importantly, it generated a rolodex filled with members of the Hollywood elite who desperately wanted to be a part of Season 2.
There’s nothing I love more than turning on the television and trying to solve a mystery. Whether it’s an easily-wrapped, hour long case on a show like Bones or a longer, sprawling mystery that slowly unfurls over an entire season, I’m ready and willing to submit my guesses.

Fargo is finally getting Season 2 off the ground. We’ve known for a while that the new season of FX’s hit event drama would follow some strong female characters and this morning the network announced that one strong woman and one well-known TV actor will be joining the second season of Noah Hawley’s drama.
The Screen Actors Guild just unleashed its nominees for 2014, and as it usually is with television, most of the nominees are pretty much what you would expect. Game Of Thrones, House Of Cards and Modern Family all cleaned up on nominations.
With a wryness that sometimes tops its film predecessor, FX’s Fargo blends extreme violence with small town absurdities, which gives the casting directors the widest net imaginable in finding the perfect actors. And the series is reaching out to one of the funniest guys out there.
Fargo landed big names when it signed on Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk and Colin Hanks, but when it came to the female police officer lead, the casting process wasn’t so easy. Eventually relative newcomer Allison Tolman landed the role, jumping from relative obscurity to a high profile cable series. Here’s how it happened.
Even though we’re still upwards of eight months away from the Season 2 debut of FX’s Emmy-winning anthology drama Fargo, that doesn’t mean we can’t let our curiosities run amok concerning where this prequelized season will take viewers. Personally, I’m shooting for dinosaurs and robots, but that's not the case.
t’s no surprise that FX renewed the critically acclaimed anthology series Fargo for Season 2. What might come as a surprise, however, is the complete change in direction for the second season’s storyline, which will feature an all new cast and (mostly) all new characters.
Will Fargo be back for Season 2? According to FX, you betcha! FX announced today that they're moving forward with a second season of the anthology series. Just as American Horror Story does each season, Fargo's second season will feature a new story, a new time period and new characters. And with that, Season 2 will be an opportunity for a new slate of actors.
There is one giant, glaring issue with these Emmy Nominations that every single man, woman and child in the free world should share. It makes no sense whatsoever that True Detective and Fargo are not in the same category. None. And rather than a weird little quirk, the diverting paths of those two shows are a clear example of a larger problem that’s only getting worse.
