Chris Rock will star in the fourth season of Fargo, which is making some rather dramatic storytelling changes for the next edition — including seemingly ditching Minnesota (oh jeez!).

FX has officially greenlit a new round of the Emmy-winning series and has cast the actor-comedian.

Moreover, the normally ultra-secret show has a released a detailed story description of the long-awaited new season.

Fargo season 4 will shift the start of the action from the rural upper Midwest (the setting of the first three seasons) to Kansas City, Mo., plus go further back in time than ever before (so no, Rock probably won’t have a Minnesota accent).

Here’s the description: “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.”

Rock released this rather brief statement: “I’m a fan of Fargo and I can’t wait to work with .”

Rock has won four Emmy awards and has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows including Lethal Weapon 4, Top Five, and Empire, among others.

Fargo season 4 has no other cast or release date yet, though late 2019 or early 2020 seems likely given the timing of this announcement.

Oct 19th 2020
33
Rock threw me off in this episode for the first time
Oct 19th 2020
34
I rolled my eyes a good 5 or 6 times during this episode
Oct 19th 2020

I thought I was going crazy. There is so much Chris Rock acting praise

Oct 22nd 2020

I was gonna say maybe something is wrong with me...
Oct 23rd 2020
44
I’m definitely loving it...
Oct 24th 2020
45
I’m enjoying it
Oct 25th 2020
46
It's fine. But it's a basic mob story on a show where ppl expect more.
Oct 27th 2020
47
Yeah, its biggest problem for me is that Season 2 was the best season of...
Oct 27th 2020
48
This.

Anyone want to explain why Chris Rock "owned" the crooked cop?
Oct 27th 2020
49
Yeah I don't get that. As soon as they let him go any leverage
Oct 27th 2020
50
I think you have to keep Gaetano alive as long as Satchel is out there.
Oct 27th 2020
51
      If Cannon was/is thinking he’s keeping his son safe by keeping
Oct 27th 2020
54
Yeah i didn't get this either
Oct 28th 2020
55
I hope and wonder
Oct 27th 2020
53
You might have missed the aliens in the prior seasons.
Oct 28th 2020
56
      I remember the supernatural elements, for the post part
Oct 28th 2020
57
The season is getting worse and worse
Nov 03rd 2020
58
I thought this episode was better than last week.
Nov 03rd 2020
59
      "The Nadir" (Ep. 8) had Rock's best acting.
Nov 10th 2020
60
           Odis had to kill Deafy because of the order from Loy...
Nov 10th 2020
61
                Yeah I don't think Loy makes it out alive
Nov 11th 2020
62
                     Yeah. My guess it’s that’s the ultimate payoff. Loy will continue
Nov 11th 2020
63
                          That's interesting and would ring true.
Nov 13th 2020
66
this season has been fuckin GREAT

Nov 23rd 2020
73
With the ring Loy can get New York to turn on Josto...
Nov 23rd 2020
74

Nov 23rd 2020
75
Ok so the ring itself doesn't matter
Nov 24th 2020

RE: Sooo, what's the deal with the ring?
