Fargo Season 4 Release Date Postponed Indefinitely Following Production Shutdown
The new season of the crime drama anthology drama was due to premiere in April.
The premiere of Fargo Season 4 has been delayed indefinitely due to COVID-19 (coronavirus). The fourth season of FX's acclaimed crime drama anthology series was set to start screening on April 19 but will now premiere at a later date.
The postponement comes two days after production on the show was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. According to FX, eight of the season's 10 episodes had been completed so far. A statement from network reads, "Due to the postponement of production related to the coronavirus, the fourth installment of FX's award-winning limited series Fargo will no longer premiere on Sunday, April 19th. A new premiere date will be determined once production resumes."
Fargo Season 4 stars Chris Rock as a crime lord in 1950s Kansas, and the cast also includes Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley, and musician Andrew Bird. The show will no longer be eligible next year's Emmy awards either, as the majority of its episodes must have aired by May 31 for it to be nominated.
Fargo is the latest in a wide variety of TV shows and movies that have been suspended or postponed. Production has also stopped on FX's Atlanta, Amazon's upcoming Lord of the Rings show, and high-profile Netflix series such as Stranger Things and The Witcher.
In terms of movies, filming has been suspended on the DC superhero film The Batman, and a variety of Disney movies, such as The Little Mermaid, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and James Cameron's Avatar sequels.
In addition, a variety of this year's big upcoming movies have had their releases pushed back or cancelled. The Bond movie No Time To Die and Fast & Furious 9 will now release in November 2020 and April 2021 respectively, while A Quiet Place: Part 2 and Mulan are yet to be given new release dates.
