We know we say this with pretty much every time we get wind of a new series, but we genuinely cannot wait for the new, fourth series of Fargo.
The show – adapted from the Coen brothers’ movie of the same name by Noah Hawley – was set to return in the US last month, but its premiere was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Now the show’s official Twitter feed has released an apology – and, like anything Fargo produces, it’s wryly funny and quirky.
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.
We’re still awaiting news of a rescheduled transmission date, as well as which channel the show will be broadcast on in the UK.
