Five months after it was originally slated to premiere, Fargo‘s fourth season will come to FX in September.
The anthology series from creator and showrunner Noah Hawley, like hundreds of other productions, shut down in March as the coronavirus pandemic spread in the United States. The Chris Rock-led season had two episodes left to shoot in Chicago prior to the shutdown.
With production on the remaining episodes set to pick up again later this month, FX has set a premiere date for the season: Fargo will debut at 10 p.m. Sept. 27 with two episodes and air weekly thereafter. The season will run 11 episodes, up from an initial count of 10.

Justified star Timothy Olyphant is returning to FX with a key role in the upcoming fourth installment of the network’s anthology series Fargo, headlined by Chris Rock.
Created, written, directed and executive produced by Noah Hawley, who also serves as showrunner, Season 4 is set in 1950 in Kansas City, MO. The locale serves as the crossroads and collisions of two migrations — Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow, both fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, two criminal syndicates — one Italian, led by Donatello Fadda, one African American, led by Loy Cannon (Rock) — have struck an uneasy peace, which the heads of both families have cemented by trading their youngest sons.
Olyphant plays a character named Dick “Deafy” Wickware in a major recurring role.
