While we wait to find out what his new Star Trek might look like, Noah Hawley is back on the small screen this spring with the long-awaited new season of Fargo. FX has released the first trailer for the fourth installment of the Coen brothers-inspired series, featuring another fantastic ensemble – in fact, this might be the best cast Hawley's assembled so far. Led by Chris Rock and Jason Schwartzman, this season of Fargo heads back to the 1950s, where a war is brewing between two local mobs: the Italians (led by Schwartzman) and the black community (led by Rock). We've come to expect a distinctly dark sense of humor from Hawley, but based on this trailer, Fargo looks even more hilarious in its fourth season:
The rats strung up as a "warning to the others" is a particularly great bit, as well as Schwartzman snorting pills and delivering deadpan lines like, "I'm gonna slow pump some babies into your daughter one at a time, and twice on Sundays."
Fargo's fourth season premieres on April 19 and also stars Jessie Buckley, Timothy Olyphant, Uzo Aduba, Ben Whishaw, and Andrew Bird. Heck of a cast.
