Fargo (Season 4)

Recommended Posts

There were some doubts it would happen, but it now looks like it is. Though at the TCA press tour, they said it won't be until 2019. No story details yet, but Hawley is working on it.

Some news!


Chris Rock will star as the head of a mob family in 1950 Kansas.



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.


Chris Rock plays the head of one family, 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  enemy's son as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes. It’s a story of immigration and assimilation, and the things we do for money. And as always, a story of basically decent people who are probably in over their heads. You know, Fargo.

Love Olyphant, mainly due to Justified (not watched Sànta Clara Diet, should I?) so happy about that.


And Gennaro from Gomorrah too, Gomorrah has got to be the best non-english language show around for me. 


Absolutely loved all of the TV Fargo's so far & this one sounds like it's shaping up nicely, c'mon 2020, get here now.

That's a really cool idea for a series. The idea of raising one of your enemy's children is something that used to happen in the middle ages IIRC, to maintain a kind of uneasy peace between various city states, so transplanting it to mid-20th century gangsters is a great idea.

How is this going to be shown in the UK? Hopefully Netflix like the other seasons?


Wasn't it on CH4 first then on Netflix?


An arrangement that works for me.

This seems to have started in the US now. Anyone seen anything about a UK air date or broadcaster? A quick search didn't reveal anything earlier, so I'm guessing we're stuck with the usual alternative (or else 'patience', whatever the hell that is).
