Series creator Noah Hawley already offered some details on the story, which will be set in Sioux Falls in 1979 and feature Lou Solverson, who is the father of Molly Solverson from Season 1. He is a 33-year-old veteran returning from the Vietnam War in the series. Hawley explained a little about why he went this route.
“That time period is interesting — post-Vietnam, post-Watergate … the best of America versus worst. That sense, I think, that this war had come home with people, and the violence and brutality of it. Lou Salverson went to Vietnam and came home, but now he’s come back and it’s here — it’s domestic.”
Series will premier in 2015.
