Chris Rock will star in the fourth season of Fargo, which is making some rather dramatic storytelling changes for the next edition - including seemingly ditching Minnesota (oh jeez!).

Rock's character might be the father of Mike Milligan (Bokeem Woodbine), one of the antagonists of Season 2, a black enforcer for the white Kansas City mafia who went to Fargo in 1979 to deal with the Gerhardt crime family. "It's an uneasy peace, but profitable".

The announcement marks a return for Rock to the network, who executive produced "Totally Biased with Kamau Bell", which aired for only a year.

FX's Fargo is one of the most exciting television shows of this decade, not only for the compelling stories it has told season to season, but also for the ways in which it's showed how existing intellectual property can be massaged into original stories.

The fourth season synopsis provided on Friday by FX, published by Rolling Stone and other entertainment outlets, describes the new season as the "story of immigration and assimilation, and the things we do for money".

Vance Jr. said the 66-year-old Weinstein is charged with "some of the most serious sexual offenses" that exist under state law. When contacted by CNN, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office declined to comment on Friday's motion for dismissal.

Emmy victor Noah Hawley will again lead the creative team for Fargo Season 4, with will begin production in 2019.

Chris Rock will join the cast of "Fargo". It certainly helps that Fargo has some comedic elements to it, but Rock will have to put some work in to convince us that he's really the head of a massive crime operation. Together they control an alternate economy - that of exploitation, graft and drugs.

Well, Kansas City, to be exact, which is where Season 4 of the acclaimed FX limited series will be set. This too is the history of America.

No other casting or a release date was announced, but production is expected to start next year, according to Entertainment Weekly. FX further states, "And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies".

Rock will play the head of one family who traded his oldest son to his enemy and who must raise his enemy's son as his own in order to prosper.
