TV Talk: FX Announces Fargo Season Two

Plus, Better Call Saul's amazing ad campaign

by | July 23, 2014 | Comments

This week, we learned details for the second seasons of Fargo and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Plus, Better Call Saul gets a real-life billboard, Seinfeld gets Emoji-fied, and The Simpsons get the craziest TV binge ever.

Fargo Season Two Is On

The team behind FX’s critically-acclaimed Fargo addressed critics at this week’s TCA and confirmed that, yes, there will be a season two. Executive producers Noah Hawley and Warren Littlefield shared details about the next Fargo anthology, which will take place in Sioux Falls circa 1979, and focus on a young Lou Solverson– a character viewers will recognize as Molly’s father, played by Keith Carradine in season one (although Carradine will not be reprising his role). Season two will traverse North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota, and will most likely pertain to the grisly incident referenced by Lou in season one — one which left bodies “stacked so high, you could’ve climbed to the second floor.” Fans can also expect to see Molly’s mother and find out what happened to her. Given the circumstances of season two, it can’t be good.

Seinfeld Emojis Are Here

If only there were a way to convey how refreshing a Junior Mint can be without having to type it out. Thankfully, you can now express yourself via Seinfeld Emoji— a new app from the guys behind the Seinfeld2000 Instagram and Twitter accounts — which is now available for free download on iTunes. The app doesn’t include a keyboard tool for your phone, but you can still send Seinfeld messages via text, tweet, Facebook, Instagram, and email. And don’t expect only the four main players — there are 42 emoticons in all, including the Costanzas, the Soup Nazi, Newman (and his mail truck), Little Jerry, Uncle Leo, and the back of George Steinbrenner’s head. You can also send a black-and-white cookie, a Pez dispenser — or a puffy shirt, for when you don’t want to be a pirate!

Better Call Saul Billboard Sighted in Albuquerque, NM

According to Vulture, a real-life billboard was spotted this week on I-25 in Albuquerque, NM for Jimmy McGill aka Saul Goodman. The billboard, a promo for the upcoming AMC Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul, pictures an almost-unrecognizable Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill. As revealed to Walter White during his first meeting with his sleazy lawyer in Breaking Bad, McGill is Saul’s real name. You can call 505-842-5662 and hear an outgoing message: “Hello! You’ve reached the law office of James M. McGill esquire, a lawyer you can trust. Kindly leave your information at the tone and Mr. McGill will phone you promptly.” Call today for a consultation.

Lucy Lawless Joins Season Two of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.

Xena the Warrior Princess is riding onto a small screen near you this September. Lucy Lawless will appear as a guest star on ABC’s second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and while it’s still unclear as to which role Lawless will play, the chatter points to Mary Maloney, “a highly skilled agent who can command any room (and boasts effortless sex appeal).” S.H.I.E.L.D. struggled with ratings last fall, but the tie-in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and guest-star appearances by Patton Oswalt and Saffron Burrows brought the series renewed attention. Now, the cultish fervor of Xena fans is sure to boost the show even more when it returns September 23.

FXX’s Marathon of Every Simpsons Ever

As The Simpsons turn 25 this year (and the characters stay the same age), all 522 episodes will air in a mega-marathon on FXX. Starting August 22 and running 24 hours a day, the ultimate TV binge will go for 12 days, ending on September 1 with The Simpsons Movie. Then, FXX will start airing The Simpsons regularly on its daily schedule, with a mini-marathon of eight episodes on Sundays. If that’s not enough Springfield for you, this October, Fox will launch Simpsons World — a comprehensive on-demand portal to every Simpsons episode, allowing you to create playlists and search quotes. Not even Comic Book Guy can find a problem with that.
