First-Look Dives Deep Into 1950s Mob Story

FX has released a first look BTS featurette for Fargo Season 4, diving deep into the 1950s mob story, while introducing a few key characters.

After some considerable delay, both for production and for the premiere, due to the pandemic, Fargo season 4 is finally on its way to FX. And to celebrate the forthcoming premiere of the newest installment of Noah Hawley’s anthology crime series, FX has released this clip focussing on this season’s mob story –

The FX synopsis reads –

“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 succeed, has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must, in turn, raise his son’s enemy as his own.

Starring alongside Rock is Timothy Olyphant, Jack Huston, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruno, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, E’myri Crutchfield, Amber Midthunder, Uzo Aduba, and James Vincent Meredith.

The first two episodes of Fargo season 4 will debut on September 27th, followed by one new episode each week, which will be available the next day on FX on Hulu.
