What’s happening:

  • “Family is complicated. Crime is organized.” FX has released the new trailer for the fourth installment of Fargo.
  • The story is set in 1950 Kansas City and stars Chris Rock as Loy Cannon—the head of an African American a crime family who trades sons with the head of the Italian mafia as part of a truce.
  • The highly anticipated installment will premiere on FX and FX on Hulu on April 19, 2020.


About the fourth installment:

  • 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. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their youngest sons.

  • Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his youngest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his enemy’s son 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.
