Where is Fargo filmed? Season 3 Filming Locations Guide

Where was Fargo filmed
Posted by
One of the most brilliant black comedy-dramas of the last years is back on its third installment. A completely new true crime with fresh characters will be set in the towns of St. Cloud and Eden Valley (Minnesota), in December 2010.

The series are loosely based on the 1996 Coen brothers movie of the same name. The first season was taking place in 2006 and starred Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman. The second one was set in 1979 and the cast was led by Kirsten Dunst and Patrick Wilson. Ewan McGregor and Carrie Coon are the stars of this last season, written by Noah Hawley (the man in charge of FX's Legion, our favorite Marvel product of all time).

All Fargo seasons were filmed in Calgary and Southern Alberta, Canada. The production used the sound stages of the new Calgary Film Centre, where some of the interior sets were built. We are spoiler-free and we will update this filming locations report with new details about the new four season shot in Chicago starring Chris Rock very soon:
