Channel 4 confirms the return of the highly anticipated fourth installment of Fargo, the Emmy®, Golden Globe®, AFI, Peabody and TCA Award-winning limited series created by Noah Hawley. The next chapter (11x60’) will premiere weekly on Channel 4 with the first two episodes directed by Hawley.
Set in 1950’s Kansas City, Chris Rock stars as “Loy Cannon” the head of the Black crime syndicate fighting for a piece of the American dream opposite the Faddas, the rival Italian crime syndicate. Together, they control an alternate economy of exploitation, graft and drugs. Amongst the turmoil, Patrick “Rabbi” Milligan (Ben Whishaw), a man who once betrayed his own family to serve the Italians, watches carefully to ensure his survival.
Intertwined with this tale of immigration, assimilation and power, are the stories of Oraetta Mayflower (Jessie Buckley), a nurse who cannot abide others’ suffering. Ethelrida Pearl Smutny (E’myri Crutchfield), the precocious 16-year-old daughter of Thurman (Andrew Bird) and Dibrell Smutny (Anji White), an interracial couple who own their own mortuary; U.S. Marshal Dick “Deafy” Wickware (Timothy Olyphant), a Mormon lawman; Detective Odis Weff (Jack Huston) and the Kansas City cop known for his compulsive tics.
Nick Lee, Head of Acquisitions & International at Channel 4 said: “We are thrilled to bring back the biggest and most gripping Fargo yet, with some absolutely unmissable performances. Fargo explores a breadth of engaging and complex storylines and it’s a fantastic opportunity to bring this unique cinematic show to our audiences once again.”
Production on the fourth installment of Fargo, which was originally scheduled to premiere in the Spring, was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic and is set to air in the UK in Spring 2021.
