FX announced the premiere date for the fourth season of its Fargo anthology series. The Noah Hawley (Legion, Lucy in the Sky) show based on the 1996 film had been delayed due to the coronavirus, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sunday, September 27 at 10 p.m. is the new premiere date, via The Hollywood Reporter. After a five-month hiatus, production for the 11-episode season aims to resume in Chicago. The season was two episodes away from completion when the spread of COVID-19 shuttered shooting.
This season of Fargo stars Chris Rock (Head of State, Top Five) as Loy Cannon, the mob boss of an African American crime family, via The Hollywood Reporter. His archrival is Italian American Donatello Fadda, played by Tommaso Ragno (The Miracle, The Private Man). Set in 1950s Kanas City, the two patriarchs attempt to reach a ceasefire by trading each other’s youngest sons. Rodney Jones (Candyman, Chicago Fire) is Satchel Cannon, while newcomer Jameson Braccioforte plays Zero Fadda.
In addition to Rock and Ragno, the show is led by Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore), Salvatore Espositio (Gomorrah), and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall, Paddington), via The Hollywood Reporter. Supporting cast includes Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Glynn Turman (How to Get Away With Murder), Corey Hendrix (Chi-Raq), Anji White (Chicago P.D., Hope Springs Eternal) and Karen Aldridge (The Dilemma, Chicago Fire).
