While it’s nice that we’re already in August, the year has been going by at a snail’s pace with the pandemic really messing up things. So, even though it feels like it’s been years since the film and TV industry has been shut down, it’s actually only been several months and it seems as if more and more productions are beginning again. That means we should be seeing delayed shows and films get firm release dates. And we’re noticing that already with FX just revealing when fans can check out the long-awaited fourth season of “Fargo.”
According to the cable network, FX has set a premiere date for Season 4 of “Fargo” on September 27, with a special back-to-back episode debut. This comes four months after the original release date back in April. However, as mentioned above, the pandemic halted production and FX did the right thing and pushed the premiere date to make sure there wouldn’t be a gap in between episodes. Now, beginning in late-September, there will be more than two months of weekly “Fargo” for your enjoyment, as production is now supposed to restart.
This season has already been a long time coming, as Season 3 finished its run in June 2017. That means it’s been over three years without a new episode of one of the best series on TV. And the world needs something to look forward to, so the return can’t be soon enough.
Season 4 stars Chris Rock alongside Jason Schwartzman, Salvatore Esposito, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Jack Huston, and Timothy Olyphant. As always, “Fargo” is overseen by Noah Hawley, the Emmy-winning creator of the anthology series.
So, mark it on your calendars, as “Fargo” begins its 11-episode new season on September 27.
Here’s the synopsis for the new season:
The fourth installment of Fargo is set in 1950 Kansas City, where two criminal syndicates fighting for a piece of the American dream have struck an uneasy peace. Chris Rock stars as Loy Cannon, the head of the African American crime family who trades sons with the head of the Italian mafia as part of tenuous truce.
