FX has released the trailer for the fourth season of “Fargo,” the new season of Noah Hawley‘s critically acclaimed anthology series which returns Sunday April 19th and is set in 1950s Kansas.
The new season introduces a whole new cast and cast of characters as it follows two warring crime syndicates fighting for a piece of the American Dream in 1950s Kansas City – finding an uneasy peace after trading custody of their first-born sons.
The cast includes Chris Rock as Loy Cannon, the head of an African American crime family, Jason Schwartzman as Josto Fadda, the son of an Italian crime boss, Ben Wishaw as Rabbi Milligan, Jack Huston as Detective Odis Weff, E’myri Crutchfield as Ethelrinda Pearl Smutny, and Jessie Buckley as Nurse Praetta Mayflower.
Speaking at the TCA panel for the series, Hawley won’t dismiss the possibility of future seasons – saying the lack of a production timeline and being able to do more seasons at his own pace means the likelihood of more seasons in the future.
As for where and when they could be set? “I always joke that it’s going to be the Space Station Fargo in the year 5100 and there may be a moment where that doesn’t feel like a terrible idea. Or it’s 1725. That’s always exciting. But you don’t want to do that as a gimmick. There has to be something really to say about basically decent people who are probably over their head.”
New episodes will premiere Sunday night on FX and then show up on FX on Hulu the next day.
