The first two episodes of Fargo season 5 are here! If you missed the two-hour premiere, both are streaming on Hulu. Want to be sure not to miss another episode? We’re here to help!

FX’s Fargo is an anthology series, but the stories still connect in some way (much like the seasons of American Horror Story). That said, while you technically can jump in at any time, including season 5, we recommend you watch all other seasons for the best experience.

Season 5 takes place in Minnesota and North Dakota over the year 2019. The story focuses on Dorothy “Dot” Lyon (portrayed by Juno Temple) as a Midwestern housewife with a dark past. A past that comes back to haunt her after North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman (Jon Hamm) is closer than ever to finding Dot. Only two episodes in, at the time of this writing, Fargo season 5 is set up to be one of the most intense seasons yet.
