FX Orders Year Four of "Fargo" Starring Chris Rock

Next Installment of the Emmy(R), Golden Globe(R), AFI, Peabody and TCA Award-Winning Limited Series Begins Production in 2019

LOS ANGELES - August 3, 2018 - FX is taking viewers back to Fargo for a fourth time as the acclaimed and award-winning limited series is set to return next year with Chris Rock onboard to star, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks and FX Productions.

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 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.

Peabody, Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award winning Executive Producer Noah Hawley (creator/showrunner/writer/director) will lead the creative team for the latest all-new "true crime" talent. Joel & Ethan Coen, Warren Littlefield and John Cameron have also served as Executive Producers. Fargo is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio and international distributor.

The fourth year of Fargo will mark a return to FX for Chris Rock, who served as an Executive Producer on Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

Rock said, "I'm a fan of Fargo and I can't wait to work with Noah."
