The first images for the Fargo season premiere was released this week. Dunst, who stars as Peggy Blomquist, a “beautician with big-city dreams,” will find her character struggling with “societal expectations” in the series. Meanwhile, Plemons’ will portray Ed Blomquist, a butcher’s assistant who is supportive of his wife’s wild aspirations.

The promo photos also show off the duo’s impressive transformations into Minnesota natives. Plemons packed on the pounds for the meat-loving role while Dunst channeled her inner eccentric self to embody the peculiar hairstylist.

“When I read the first few episodes, I was thinking to myself that I want people to giggle just a little bit to themselves when they see Peggy,” Dunst said during the 2015 Summer TCA press tour. “I want them to be on Peggy’s side in a way. I knew certain things, like wearing white earmuffs when I do something that’s not necessarily right. I want you to giggle when you see Peggy.”

“Fargo” Season 2 will premiere on Monday, Oct. 12, at 10 p.m. EDT on FX.
