‘Fargo’ Season 4 Starring Chris Rock Likely Won’t Begin Filming In Calgary Until Next Fall

Aug 29, 2018

Comedic actor Chris Rock will be leading the fourth season of FX’s Fargo and they also announced the show’s synopsis.

Season four of Fargo is set in 1950, at the end of two American migrations — that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the U.S. at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York and 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.

We’ve learned that filming is indeed expected to make a return to Calgary, Alberta with a potential start in the fall of next year. Although, the series is currently without production dates. It’s possible that this might have to do with Noah Hawley being busy with the Natalie Portman movie Pale Blue Dot.

The assumption would be that if it does take that long to get cameras rolling it won’t be airing until 2020.
