Fargo: Season 3 - Rotten Tomatoes

Fargo: Season 3 (2017)




Critic Consensus: Thanks in part to a memorable dual performance from Ewan McGregor, Fargo mostly maintains the sly wit and off-kilter sensibility it displayed in its first two seasons.

Tv Season Info

Set in 2010, the third installment of Fargo centers on "Emmit" and his slightly younger brother "Ray Stussy" (Ewan McGregor). Emmit, the Parking Lot King of Minnesota, sees himself as an American success story, whereas Ray is more of a cautionary tale. Forever living in his more successful brother's shadow, Ray is a balding ad pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he's been dealt -- and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that … More

Critic Reviews for Fargo: Season 3

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (25)

Fargo's creator, Noah Hawley, took us on many diversions this season: into the past, into the woods, into action movie territory. Yet it was the comedy of character we will remember.

Times (UK)

That might be why Fargo's spark feels a trifle faded; we've seen so many of these characters and elements in different configurations before.

This season was just as strong if not stronger than any other season, but it rarely gave you the answers. It asked you to think.

In this third season, two characters rise to the top as protagonists worth cheering on: Minnesotan police chief Gloria Burgle and Nikki Swango, a street-smart ex-con.

It's as if Fargo is riffing on its resemblance to itself; as if the echoes between seasons and with the film are filtering into the plot, and building resonance out of the mix-ups.

Season 3 seemed like it had finally, decisively broken from its predecessors on both TV and in film - particularly when Mary Elizabeth Winstead's scammer emerged as the season's complicated, gray-area-dwelling hero.

Audience Reviews for Fargo: Season 3


Fargo completely sh**s the bed in its third season. While the show puts together an impressive cast that includes Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, David Thewlis, and Carrie Coon, the characters are some of the most repugnant and despicable of the series, and no fun to watch. The story follows a parking lot mogul named Emmit Stussy who gets into a deadly feud with his twin brother over a stolen inheritance; meanwhile a mysterious businessman named V.M. Varga quietly orchestrates a hostile takeover of Stussy's company and manipulates Stussy into betraying those closest to him. There's no one to really root for, and there aren't too many laughs either. The tone is quite macabre, more so than in past seasons, with a very pessimistic outlook. Still, there are some exciting and intense scenes and twists as the criminal plots and investigations unfold. Series creator Noah Hawley has said that Season 3 of Fargo may be the last, and hopefully it is because it's slidden so far downhill that it's just not enjoyable to watch any more.

Maybe the best TV crime drama I will see this year. If for no other reason I urge people to see season three of Fargo for the work of David Thewlis as the sinister antagonist. But, you'll also dig the performances of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon and Ewan McGregor who plays two roles.
