A post from RollingStone’s Alan Sepinwall on Twitter has seemingly revealed FX’s announcement for the cast of the fourth season of Fargo, starring Chris Rock.
Joining Rock will be Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruno, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, E’myri Crutchfield, and Amber Midthunder.
Filming will begin this fall in Chicago, seeing production move from Calgary, Alberta.

A major reason for the production delay on this season was because creator/showrunner Noah Hawley was busy directing the Fox Searchlight film Lucy In The Sky.
FX is now owned by Disney after the Walt Disney Company/21st Century Fox merger completed back in mid-March. An FX executive recently talked about how they’ll likely be partnering with Hulu (Disney is now the majority owner) in the future, and how FX shows’ mature content will likely be streaming on the service.
I’m a little curious if Noah will continue the series or will move into a career of filmmaking, as he was penning a script for a solo Doctor Doom movie with the intention to direct it. Hawley revealed that he had met with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige about possible continuing to keep working on it.
The fourth season is also expected to begin airing sometime in 2020.
