Fargo is a retelling of the Coen brother’s 1996 film, and Kate plays Gina Hess, a mother who also happens to be a stripper, alongside stars like Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman.
So how did the premiere do? Fargo’s first episode brought in 2.65 million viewers, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and that number grew to over 4 million once the night was over and the show had repeated twice.
And although plans for the show were originally to create a mini-series, there is talk that we might get more of the show, thanks to it’s huge success. Good news for Kate — and for us, because we’ll get to see her again!
“I said it was a 10-hour movie,” showrunner Noah Hawley said. “It’s an anthology. If you did a second 10-hour movie, it would be a completely new story from the Coen brothers universe.”
