Chris Rock has just landed a TV series regular gig.
After nearly a decade since the funny man was tapped as TV series regular, Rock joins the fourth season of the Noah Hawley anthology.
The new of the newest addition to FX’s hit limited series were announced Friday at the at the Television Critics Association press tour. Rock shared his excitement saying, “I’m a fan of Fargo and I can’t wait to work with Noah.”
The fourth installment has been officially greenlit and here is the official FX description: “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.”
Hawley will return as showrunner writer and director, while Joel & Ethan Coen, Warren Littlefield, and John Cameron have also served as executive producers. Production on the upcoming installment will begin in 2019, however, no return date has been determined.
