'Fargo' creator Noah Hawley calls Allison Tolman's release from the show a crime

By Elizabeth Sudlow,

News of FX’s plans for Fargo, which is being brought back for a second season is coming to light as more cast and plot announcements are made this week, and it was learned that no one from the first season would be returning.

Fans may be excited about a new crime to be solved in 2015 but show creator Noah Hawley is admitting to one serious crime already made when it comes to season two: the firing of Allison Tolman.

Tolman played Detective Molly Solverson and considering the plot for next season will take place in 30 years earlier, her existence was not possible. Hawley feels that everyone should be angry about this as he feels it is, “is a crime and a tragedy, and you should all be very angry at us for doing that” reports the NY Daily News.

Tolman’s character ended up marrying former policeman Gus Grimley at the end of season one and Hawley wishes he could continue their adventure but with next season being a prequel, Detective Solverson would be 4 years old and not quite ready for police work.

Fargo’s first season earned 18 Emmy nominations and the awards' show will air on Aug. 25. How do you feel about a new cast and no Detective Silverson? Are you as angry as Hawley?
