Brilliant first episode. I love it already. Definitely more of a season 1 tone to it so far. What a strawberry floating cast this has. I didn't even realise Michael Stuhlbarg was in it, such a great character actor. Not sure what significance the opening scene has yet but I'd watch the hell out of a whole show of that. It was almost Tarantino-esque.

It's only a 6 page thread and only the last 3 are post-premiere. I genuinely think you're overreacting. Most of the negativity is the same two dudes who have multiple posts. One of those guys is a total shithead, mind. Seen him around.
FX CEO John Landgraf Says ‘Fargo’ Season 4 Will Air In 2019 – TCA
“Fargo is not gone,” FX boss John Landgraf assured during the network’s winter TCA executive session this morning in Pasadena.
The CEO said creator Noah Hawley “has an idea which excites me enormously for a fourth cycle. The plan is to have that ready for 2019. I’m focused on what will come in 2018, but our anticipation is that there’s another cycle in 2019.”
Catching up with Fargo EP Warren Littlefield today at the PGA’s Produced By, he told Deadline that season 4 of the Emmy-winning FX series “will go into production in the fall of 2019.”
“(Creator) Noah Hawley is directing a film this summer (Natalie Portman in Fox Searchlight’s Pale Blue Dot), and then in the fourth quarter, he’ll write the opening hour of Fargo, and then at the top of the year, the writers’ room will go to work. Hopefully we get most of the season written, and then in fall go into production.”
In regards to season 4’s theme, Littlefield was largely mum, saying, “We have a year, a city, and a location.”
Fargo creator Noah Hawley, as he promised, has found a date on his calendar and is moving forward with a fourth season of his Emmy-winning series today toplined by Chris Rock who’ll play the head of a crime family. FX Networks and Productions CEO John Landgraf announced the news today at TCA.
Series EP Warren Littlefield told Deadline back in June that they have a city and year for season 4, and as unveiled today that’s 1950, Kansas City, Missouri.
Essentially the locale will serve as the crossroads and collisions of two migrations, Italians coming from Italy and African Americans fleeing the south to escape Jim Crow, both fighting for a piece of the American dream as two controlling crime syndicates. They are at an uneasy peace controlling an alternate economy of exploitation, graft and drugs. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons.
Rock’s character in order to prosper has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his son’s enemy as his own. Then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes.
Rock said in a statement, “I’m a fan of Fargo and I can’t wait to work with Noah.”
