Orange Is the New Black may have sadly come to an end, but one of its biggest stars has landed a major role in another big series.

Uzo Aduba, best known for playing Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes' Warren on the Netflix show, has signed-up for the fourth season of FX's Fargo.

According to Deadline, she will play a lead role in the series alongside Chris Rock, though no further details on her character have been revealed.

Aduba joins a pretty stellar cast for season four, with Jason Schwartzman, Ben Whishaw, Jessie Buckley and Jack Huston all on board.

Also starring are Salvatore Esposito, Andrew Bird, Jeremie Harris, Gaetano Bruno, Anji White, Francesco Acquaroli, E’myri Crutchfield and Amber Midthunder.

The fourth outing has certainly been a long time coming, with season three premiering well over two years ago.

Season four is set to follow two crime syndicates, the synopsis reading: "In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy – that of exploitation, graft and drugs.

"To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons. Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who – in order to prosper – has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his son's enemy as his own.

"It's an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes."

Fargo airs on FX in the US and Channel 4 in the UK.
