'Fargo' Season 4 Trailer: Chris Rock Is A 1950s Missouri Crime Boss

FX has dropped the trailer for the highly-anticipated fourth season of its acclaimed anthology series, Fargo.

Season 4 is led by Chris Rock and also stars  Ben Wishaw, Jessie Buckley, Jeremie Harris, Glynn Turman, Corey Hendrix, Matthew Elam, Anji White, E'myri Crutchfield, Amber Midthunder, Jack Huston, Jason Schwartzman, Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Gaetano Bruno and Francesco Acquaroli. Uzo Aduba will appear in a recurring capacity.

Here's the description:  In 1950, at the end of two great 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.

Rock plays the head of one family, a man "who — in order to prosper — has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must, in turn, raise his enemy’s son as his own. It’s an uneasy peace, but profitable.  And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes. It’s a story of immigration. assimilation and the things we do for money. And as always, a story of basically decent people who are probably in over their heads. You know, Fargo."

Fargo’s first season won three Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Miniseries, two Golden Globe Awards, including Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television, and a Peabody Award. The second season won two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Cinematography for a Limited Series or Movie and Outstanding Sound Editing for a Limited Series, Movie or Special. The third installment won an additional Emmy and Golden Globe Award.
