Who is going to be appearing on Fargo season 4, and what will some of the larger story be? FX has made you wait for a long time for details and that wait ends today.
In an official statement, the network revealed that the following actors are going to be joining the upcoming season premiering next year: Jack Huston as Odis Weff, Jason Schwartzman as Josto Fadda, Ben Whishaw as Rabbi Milligan, Jessie Buckley as Oraetta Mayflower, Salvatore Esposito as Gaetano Fadda, Andrew Bird as Thurman Smutney, Jeremie Harris as Leon Bittle, Gaetano Bruno as Constant Calamita, Anji White as Dibrell Smutney, Francesco Acquaroli as Ebal Violante, E’Myri Crutchfield as Ethelrida Pearl Smutney, and Amber Midthunder, who is recurring as Swanee Capps. Chris Rock was already announced to be the lead for this installment.
For more details on the actual story of season 4, take a look at what CarterMatt has for you below:
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 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.
With the different setting for the new season — and the fact that season 4 is filming in Chicago as opposed to Alberta (which we’ve seen in the past) — this is going to feel like a very different season of Fargo. In between the fantastic cast and the reputation of creator Noah Hawley, we don’t foresee any reason to doubt the show’s overall greatness. The problem comes mostly in these impossibly-long waits between seasons, but much like Sherlock fans will come back for more whenever they decide to drop the new season.
