Noah Hawley is the creator of Fargo and is without a doubt one of the busiest men in Hollywood right now because of that the series was put on hold. But the FX has confirmed that Hawley is ready to begin the production of the fourth season of Fargo. There was also an announcement, Chris Rock will be the lead in the next installment of the anthology series. This show is quite popular and the audience reaction was pretty decent.
Fargo Season 4 update
Hawley said, “I’m always interested in trying to expand the definition [of the series].” He further added “Fargo can be this, but can it also be this? The only reason to make another one is if you’re going to do something different. We’ve made 30 hours of the show so far, and the last thing I ever want is for someone to say, ‘You know, it’s Fargo. They do their Fargo thing, and it’s funny.’ If you have this tone of voice and this ability to channel this Coen brothers sensibility, you just don’t want to repeat yourself, because they never do.”
As for the cast, Timothy Olyphant has joined the cast of the fourth season as well as Chris Rock who will be the lead of the show. He will be playing the role of “A man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must, in turn, raise his son’s enemy as his own.” As for the other cast members, Jack Huston as Odis Weff, Jason Schwartzman as Josto Fadda, Ben Whishaw as Rabbi Milligan, Jessie Buckley as Oraetta Mayflower, Salvatore Esposito as Gaetano Fadda, Andrew Bird as Thurman Smutney, Jeremie Harris as Leon Bittle, Gaetano Bruno as Constant Calamita, Anji White as Dibrell Smutney, Francesco Acquaroli as Ebal Violante, E’myri Crutchfield as Ethelrida Pearl Smutney, Amber Midthunder as Swanee Capps.
The fourth season of Fargo will begin production in Chicago in fall 2019 and it will air sometime in 2020. As for the story, here is the official synopsis of fourth season “In 1950, at the end of two great American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the US at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago — and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities — you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy — that of exploitation, graft, and drugs. This too is the history of America. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons.”
