Described as a story of immigration and assimilation and the things we do for money, the fourth season of “Fargo” is set in 1950 in Kansas City, Missouri, where two criminal syndicates – an Italian, an Afro -american – have struck a uneasy peace. To consolidate their truce, Loy Cannon (Rock), the head of the African-American crime family, trades his youngest son Satchel (Rodney Jones), to his enemy Donatello Fadda (Tommaso Ragno), the boss of the Italian Mafia. In return, Donatello cedes his youngest son Zero (Jameson Braccioforte) to Loy. But then the Kansas City mob boss walks into the hospital for routine surgery and dies – and everything changes.
The cast of the set for Season 4 also includes the following talents: Uzo Aduba, Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruon, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, Emyri Crutchfield and Amber Midthunder.
The delay has pushed the series out of the 2020 Emmys window, meaning it will be competing for the top TV awards next year. Season 4 comes roughly three and a half years after the previous episode, which aired in April 2017 and nominated for over a dozen Emmys.
