Fargo creator Noah Hawley surely the busiest men in Hollywood at the moment, as the award-winning series was put on hiatus longer than fans expected. At TCA, FX confirmed that Hawley is preparing for production for season 4 and shared that Chris Rock will be the lead in the future of the series.
While Fargo Season 3 was a successful outing, some critics of the show believe that the premise has gone stale. Though we largely liked the quieter, more personal third season, we have to accept that the routine runs the risk of getting tired. Fargo Season 4 will be speculated on by fans and critics wondering what shape it will take when it returns.
Fargo Season 4 Cast
Timothy Olyphant will be the part of the cast for season 4, reports Deadline. His character goes by the name Dick “Defy” Wickware. He’ll next be seen in director Theodore Melfi’s film drama, The Starling, joined by Melissa McCarthy and his Santa Clarita Diet onscreen son, Skyler Gisondo.
Chris Rock will be a lead on Fargo Season 4. Rock is set to play the head of one family. After returning in 2018 with a Netflix standup special, Rock now has his first lead dramatic role on a television series.

Fargo Season 4 Plot Details
FX announced the first details of the upcoming season, which will take fans to a new part of the country. Here’s the synopsis:
In 1950, in 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 places like New York, Chicago — and African Americans who left the south in huge numbers to avoid Jim Crow and moved to those same places — you saw a collision of outsiders, all brawling 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 sway an alternate economy — that of exploitation, graft, and drugs. This is the history of America. To finalize their peace, the heads of both families have exchanged their eldest sons.
At this point, “Fargo” basically means “the entire Midwest.”
