Snowfall has become one of the best crime drama show in FX catalogue, with many fans are wondering whether or not Snowfall Season 5 is happening or not. And like many shows during 2020/2021 period, it is uncertain whether or not that the new season will come anytime soon.
Well, you don’t have to ponder those questions for too long nor do you have to be hard-boiled detective to figure it out, we will tell you everything you need to know about Snowfall Season 5!
Will there be Snowfall Season 5?
Yes! FX has renewed Snowfall for another run so Snowfall Season 5 is absolutely happening. It is not hard to see why FX renew the show so quickly as they have nothing but high praises to say about the show.
“Snowfall has come into its own as one of the best dramas on TV,” said Eric Schrier, president of FX Entertainment. “Its quality and audience growth is a remarkable achievement for a show in its fourth season.
“This series owes its excellence to the amazing team behind Snowfall, its co-creator John Singleton and co-creator/showrunner Dave Andron and executive producers Walter Mosley, Leonard Chang and Tommy Schlamme. Damson Idris and our entire cast continue to deliver outstanding performances every episode.”
Snowfall has continued to perform exceedingly well in the ratings and audiences crave a high concept detective show after shows like True Detective have ended.
But like a ton of shows that aired during the 2020/2021 period, Snowfall’s filming was halted by the pandemic which pushed its seasonal release schedule significantly. If production for Snowfall Season 5 is able to continue without interruption, there’s a chance the series will stick to the original schedule and land in July 2022 in the US through FX and Hulu, with the UK schedule following at a later date.
Who will be in Snowfall Season 5?
All cast are expected to return so actors and actresses such as Damson Idris as Franklin who is a detective with the Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums (C.R.A.S.H) agency focusing on helping people out of the street but also solving petty crimes.
But behind the rough job he held he is also “attractive, outwardly tough, but is constantly battling his own demons, including a drug addiction and a failing marriage,” according to Deadline.
Other supporting cast such as Carter Hudson as Teddy McDonald, Sergio Peris-Mencheta as Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata, Amin Joseph as Jerome Saint, Michael Hyatt as Cissy Saint, Angela Lewis as Aunt Louie, Isaiah John as Leon Simmons and Suzy Nakamura as Irene Abe, are among others who likely return on Snowfall Season 5.
There is also a new cast such as DeVaughn Nixon (Prom, Marvel’s Runaways) is also joining Snowfall Season 5 playing a character by the name of Kane Hamilton. An ex-con, Kane is Kevin’s (Malcolm Mays) older brother as well as a fraternal figure to Franklin and Leon (Isaiah John). He is a powerful man and he used to be a member of the neighbourhood.
What’s the story for Snowfall Season 5?
Chatting to GoldDerby, co-creator Dave Andron said that the action is likely to “jump forward a little bit in time” so that they can “get into the meat of 1986 when the violence was really ramping up, when you really started to feel the full militarization of the LAPD, when the War on Drugs was on its way to reaching its apex”.
He added: “And then this kind of pop culture explosion that was brimming in South Central – the rise of gangster rap and you had Straight Outta Compton and those things getting ready to drop and blow up. It’s a huge sea-change moment for the neighbourhood.”
