One of the most acclaimed dramas on TV is back, with Fargo returning for its fourth season.
The anthology series, which is a spin-off from the classic Coen brothers film of 1996, will focus on a brand new story in its new run.
Each series of Fargo has focused on a different set of characters in a different time and place.
The first series focused on Martin Freeman’s life insurance salesman Lester Nygaard and Billy Bob Thornton’s hitman Lorne Malvo in 2006 Fargo, North Dakota.
The second was set in 1979 and told the story of Lou Solverson, who is the father of the police officer Molly Solverson from the first series.
The third season then moved to a more contemporary setting and starred Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a couple who become involved in a double murder case.
Nick Lee, Head of Acquisitions & International at Channel 4 said: ‘We are thrilled to bring back the biggest and most gripping Fargo yet, with some absolutely unmissable performances.
‘Fargo explores a breadth of engaging and complex storylines and it’s a fantastic opportunity to bring this unique cinematic show to our audiences once again.’
