Fans of the FX television show Fargo will be excited to hear that the hit show is coming to Oak Park to film during its fourth season. In an Oct. 21 meeting, the village board approved a temporary parking lot agreement with Redhawk Productions IV LLC. The production company will use the property located between Oak Park Avenue and Euclid Avenue, along Madison Street. The parking lot will be used for trailers and parking for the film crew. The license starts Oct. 30 and expires March 30.
Information on what the series plans to film in Oak Park was unavailable. In addition to Oak Park, the series' fourth season is also filming in Chicago and Momence, Illinois, which was transformed to look like 1950s Kansas City, the period and place in which the newest season is set.
Chris Rock, Timothy Olyphant, Uzo Aduba and Jason Schwartzman star in season four, which won't be aired until sometime next year. Fargo is an anthology series inspired by the eponymous 1996 film by filmmaking brothers Joel and Ethan Coen.
