Fargo season 4 has had its UK return date confirmed by Channel 4.

Created by Noah Hawley, the anthology-like mystery series airs on FX in the US, with its third season finale broadcast all the way back in June 2017.

After an incredibly lengthy delay, the fourth season finally debuted in the US in September and it has now been confirmed that Fargo season 4 will arrive on British screens this year.

On Tuesday (March 2), Channel 4 revealed it will premiere the 11-episode season this spring and air episodes weekly thereafter.

Set in Kansas City in the 1950s, Fargo season 4 charts the breakdown of an uneasy truce between rival Italian and Black crime syndicates, following a major death.

Continuing the show's run of impressive cast lists, the new season features the likes of Chris Rock, Jessie Buckley, Ben Whishaw and Timothy Olyphant.

"We are thrilled to bring back the biggest and most gripping Fargo yet, with some absolutely unmissable performances," said Channel 4's head of Acquisitions & International, Nick Lee.

"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."

Fargo's huge transmission gap was aided by both the coronavirus pandemic and by filming on Hawley's feature film debut Lucy in the Sky.

While the movie was widely panned, Fargo season 4 genuinely impressed the critics.

Fargo airs on FX in the US. Fargo season 4 will debut this spring on Channel 4 in the UK.
