Fargo

Each season, the series will be set in a different era and will follow a new story with new characters, limited to 10 episodes per season. The series is set in the same fictional universe as the film with a number of references made connecting the series to the film. Although each episode begins with the superimposed text: "This is a true story", this claim is completely fictional. This show offers dark humor with odd twists.

'Fargo' Renewed For Season 4

FX confirmed today that Fargo will be returning for a fourth season. And while fans of the critically-acclaimed drama will surely be happy with the news of its return, they may not be too happy with the wait involved until it comes back.
The cable network has given a fall 2019 time frame for when production will likely begin, which means a 2020 premiere is probable. Season 3 aired last spring, so that will be at least three years in between seasons.
Some new information on Season 4 has been unveiled, the biggest of which is that Chris Rock has been cast in a lead role as the head of a crime family. The setting will be Kansas City, Missouri in the year 1950, as two families - Italians migrating from Italy and African Americans fleeing the south - collide, with each fighting for a piece of the American dream.

'Fargo' Season 2 Details Revealed
At the Television Critics Association fall preview for Fargo, Noah Hawley announced, "If you were paying attention to Season 1, we made a lot of reference to Sioux Falls, [South Dakota]. That was not an accident. It will take place in 1979 and take place around ... Luverne, Minnesota and Fargo and Sioux Falls." In the first season, Lou Solverson often mysteriously referred to an incident in Sioux Falls, from when he was 33 and recently returned from the Vietnam War. Lou's father-in-law is slated to make an appearance and so will Lt. Ben Schmidt, who was also at Sioux Falls during that time.
