Los Angeles: Actor-comedian Chris Rock will feature in the fourth season of popular FX series “Fargo”. FX Networks chief executive John Landgraf made the announcement during the Television Critics Association press tour event, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The four season will be set in the 1950s Kansas City, Missouri, and follows two criminal syndicates – one Italian and other African-American – who have struck an uneasy peace. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons.
The 53-year-old actor will play the head of an African-American family who surrenders his oldest boy to his enemy to keep an uneasy peace. “I’m a fan of ‘Fargo’ and I can’t wait to work with Noah,” said Rock.
Series creator Noah Hawley will once again serve as the showrunner, writer and director for the new season. Production on “Fargo” season four will begin in 2019.
