High River, AB: Fargo S2 Productions Inc. will be in High River on Monday, January 26 to film an episode of the television series Fargo, which airs on the FX network. Due to the lack of snow, crews have altered their filming plans from what the Town previously released.
The crew will arrive and begin set-up at 5 a.m. and most of the filming will take place at 415 1 Street S.W. In order to accommodate equipment and ensure safety of the cast and crew, there will be a road closure on 1 Street S.W. between 4 Avenue S.W. and 5 Avenue S.W from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. Please see attached maps for more information about exact locations of the road closures.
Fargo representatives appreciate members of the public abiding by the posted parking and detour signs and following traffic controllers’ instructions. All possible considerations will be made to accommodate local traffic, emergency vehicles, pedestrians and school buses, and businesses will remain open.
‘FARGO’ is a television series inspired by the award-winning Coen Brothers film of the same name. Although not focusing on the events and characters from the original movie, this story will take place in the same universe as the 1996 cult classic.
