In bringing Fargo, an anthology TV adaptation of the Coen Brothers' iconic film, to FX in 2014, Noah Hawley pulled off the trickiest balancing act in ages. He had to make his series stand out on its own, and not be overshadowed by the immensely large cloud of the source material. At the same time, the show had to live up to the vividly entertaining world established by the movie and fit into it. The first season, starring Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, did all of that expertly. Then the second season, on the back of Patrick Wilson, went and topped the first season. The upcoming third season, which centers on a pair of twins played by Ewan McGregor, has enormous shoes to fill. But after everything Hawley and Co. have already accomplished, how could you not bet on them to do just that? —Andrew Gruttadaro
