Don’t miss: “Fargo” – The snow-capped crime anthology makes a welcome return. For Season 3, the story is set in 2010 and centers on two brothers – both wonderfully played by Ewan McGregor. One is a handsome real estate mogul. The other is a balding, pot-bellied parole officer. Their sibling rivalry will send them down a very dangerous path. The cast also includes Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and David Thewlis. 9 p.m. Wednesday, FX.
