Noah Hawley’s Fargo series has paid homage to the Coen Brothers movie that inspired it, and other Coen movies like The Big Lebowski. Hawley said he drew from the Coens’ Raising Arizona to begin his fourth season. The show is currently in production, but Hawley and the cast were on a Television Critics Association panel to discuss it.

Chris Rock and Jason Schwartzman star as rival gangsters in 1950s Minnesota. Hawley discussed the Raising Arizona influence, the role of police in this season, and the season’s thematic connection with Fargo. Fargo returns April 19 on FX.
