One of the big crime shows we’re looking forward to this year is series four of Fargo, Noah Hawley’s TV spin-off of the Coen brothers’ Oscar-winning movie.
Over three series it has played host to some brilliant stories, actors and moments, and has managed, remarkably, to keep the Coens’ offbeat humour, tone and stories intact while fashioning its own niche.
With series four on the way, FX – the show’s US home – has released the first trailer.
Series four is set in 1950 in Kansas City. The locale serves as the crossroads and collisions of two migrations — Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow, both fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, two criminal syndicates — one Italian, led by Donatello Fadda, one African American, led by Loy Cannon (Chris Rock) — have struck an uneasy peace, which the heads of both families have cemented by trading their youngest sons.”
Timothy Olyphant joins Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruno, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, E’myri Crutchfield, Amber Midthunder and Uzo Aduba.
Loo out for it in the US from 19th April, although there’s no word when Channel 4 – if it is Channel 4 – will broadcast it in the UK.
