Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Fargo paints a bleak portrait of a small town that blossoms into a hotbed of murderous activity. The second season is set 30 years in the past and features a new cast and new crimes to explore. Violence is a major theme, and depictions of it tend toward the bloody and realistic. There's also some simulated sex (but no nudity) and iffy language that ranges from "t-ts" to "p---y." Some characters drink and smoke cigarettes.

Sexual Content

Some simulated sex and crass descriptions of sexual acts. No graphic nudity. One supporting character used to be a stripper.


Violence isn't constant, but when it happens it's very bloody and darkly realistic -- from shootings and stabbings to crude bludgeonings and throat slicings. Several characters are killers for hire who don't blink an eye at knocking off anyone who gets in their way; one in particular seems to delight in finding cruelly "creative" ways to kill and torture others. There's also an underlying sense of tension and menace that rarely eases.


Swearing includes "s--t," "p---y," "t-ts," and "piss."

Social Behavior

There's an ongoing search for truth and justice, but the overarching theme is that the world is bleak and treacherous and that bad guys can triumph.
