After the critically acclaimed first season last year of the TV adaptation of nineties hit movie Fargo, it's no wonder they are coming back for more with a season two. All be it with a little less Lorne and Lester in the mix.

The second season will be a prequel set in 1979 following central character Molly's father Lou Solverson when he was just 33 years old. Molly will also be in it but as a four year old child.

We told you in December that Nick Offerman, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad) had taken up roles in the show, and now it looks like Ted Danson and Patrick Wilson will be joining him.

Patrick Wilson will taking on the lead role of Lou, played by Keith Carradine in season one. He is described as 'a clean cut Minnesota State Patrolman, four years back from Vietnam, where he served in the Navy. A humble and competent man, Lou is a devoted husband to his wife Betsy (yet to be cast), and father to four-year-old Molly.'

While Danson will take on the role of Rock County, Minnesota's Sheriff Hank Larsson, who is described as "an unflappable WWII vet who embodies a certain cowboy poetry". He is Solverson's father-in-law.

All rounding up to be quite the cast, although we will have to wait all the way until Autumn for its premiere.
