This is the timeline for the Fargo universe, including the film, the FX TV series, and even the unaired Pilot 1997 episode that served as a direct sequel to the film. While the 2014 series uses an anthology style approach with new characters each year, they all occur in the same universe and feature connections between the film and subsequent seasons of the 2014 TV show.

 

The film is in bold text, and the episodes are in regular text (and broken up by time code for flashbacks). The 1997 Pilot episode is marked as such to differentiate it from the 2014 series.
