'Snowfall': FX's '80s Crack Epidemic Drama From John Singleton Renewed For Season 3

The drama series Snowfall, created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, has been renewed for a third season at FX.

“It has been great to see Snowfall’s audience and critical acclaim grow in its second season. The creative team has done a fantastic job and we have high hopes for season three,” said Eric Schrier, one of the presidents of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions.

The season 2 finale of Snowfall will air Thursday night.

Here’s the description of the second season: Snowfall continues its riveting story about the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. Season two follows our ensemble of characters as they intersect and overlap within the mosaic of Los Angeles as we enter 1984, all of them working toward their ultimate goals of money, power and influence, including Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), a young street entrepreneur beginning to experience the perils of success; Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative who finds that his off-book drug-funded operation may be vulnerable from unexpected sources, both personal and professional; and Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios), the drug running couple who discover the potency of crack and try to exploit it despite the new dangers involved.

Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron is the showrunner.
