What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FX cable channel, Snowfall stars Damson Idris, Carter Hudson, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Michael Hyatt, Amin Joseph, Angela Lewis, Alon Moni Aboutboul, and Isaiah John. Unfolding in 1980s Los Angeles, the series explores the crack cocaine epidemic. The fourth season begins in 1985. Ronald Reagan has won his re-election campaign and in South Central, the demand for crack cocaine is high. This crew of dealers, led by Franklin Saint (Idris), are benefitting greatly from the rising tide of addiction. However, they are also starting to become aware of the damage the drug is doing to the people and to the place they love.

Will FX cancel or renew Snowfall for season five? It’s been over a year and a half since season three concluded but this show seems to have a devoted core audience.
