*Season 4 of “Fargo“ was set to premiere on FX on April 19, but as chaos continues to erupt across the world over the coronavirus outbreak, the premiere date has been pushed back indefinitely.
The network announced on Monday (March 16) that production on the last few episodes have been delayed to prevent the spread of the potentially deadly virus.
“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 19. A new premiere date will be determined once production resumes,” FX said in a statement.
Sources told TVLine that eight of Season 4’s 10 episodes are complete, and that the new season will begin airing later this year.
A new premiere date has yet to be set.

We previously reported… this new season is set in 1950 in Kansas City, Missouri, and stars Chris Rock as Loy Cannon, a crime boss who finds himself in a power struggle after two criminal syndicates — one Italian, one Black — strike peace.
“To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons. Rock will play the head of one of the syndicates, who has surrendered his son to his enemy, and who must raise his son’s enemy as his own. But then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies — and everything changes,” per Variety.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Rock promised that this will be “the biggest Fargo” yet.
“Fargo normally tells little stories that get out of hand,” he said. “They’re about ordinary people, something happens, and then we get to see how evil ordinary people can be. This is quite different. We start off gangsters, so we’re beginning with bad people, and then it escalates.”
