All Fargo Seasons and Movie Ranked by Tomatometer

We’re ranking the Fargo franchise by Tomatometer, from the original 1996 black comedy thriller film by Joel and Ethan Coen, to its transformation into an FX TV anthology series. Each season of the show tells separate sordid criminal stories in some supposedly-sleepy Midwestern towns, from a ‘stranger walks into town’ tale (Season 1) to philatelic skullduggery (Season 3) to mob family warfare (Season 4).

Fargo: Season 4 (2020)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though Fargo's ambitious fourth season struggles to maintain momentum, fine performances and a change of scenery make for an engaging -- if uneven -- departure from the series' norm.

Fargo: Season 3 (2017)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Thanks in part to a memorable dual performance from Ewan McGregor, Fargo mostly maintains the sly wit and off-kilter sensibility it displayed in its first two seasons.


Fargo (1996)

Adjusted Score: 100364%
Critics Consensus: Violent, quirky, and darkly funny, Fargo delivers an original crime story and a wonderful performance by McDormand.
Synopsis: "Fargo" is a reality-based crime drama set in Minnesota in 1987. Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) is a car salesman... [More]
Directed By: Joel Coen

Fargo: Season 1 (2014)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Based on the film of the same name in atmosphere, style and location only, Fargo presents more quirky characters and a new storyline that is expertly executed with dark humor and odd twists.

Fargo: Season 2 (2015)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Season two of Fargo retains all the elements that made the series an award-winning hit, successfully delivering another stellar saga powered by fascinating characters, cheeky cynicism, and just a touch of the absurd.
