'Snowfall' Sets Season 4 Premiere Date And It's Earlier Than You Expected

Snowfall is finally coming back. Due to production delays surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the series got delayed, but the show’s fourth season is on the way and it will be back sooner than expected.

A short teaser released late last month indicated that the show would be coming back in Spring 2021. However, Shadow and Act has learned from FX that the show will actually be back in Feb. 24, 2021.

Here’s the official description for the fourth season: Business is booming in season four of Snowfall. It’s January 1, 1985. Ronald Reagan has won his re-election campaign proclaiming it is “morning again in America,” but in South Central, Los Angeles, it feels more like the sun is getting low.  The demand for crack cocaine is high, and while our crew of dealers led by Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) are benefitting greatly from the rising tide of addiction, they are also starting to become aware of the damage the drug is doing to the people and to the place they love. With the entire nation taking note, the LAPD is diverting serious money and resources to the “war on drugs.” Politicians’ phones are ringing. Powerful people are concerned, from the hallways of The White House to those of CIA headquarters, where there are whispers that one of their own may be involved in this burgeoning epidemic.  

FX is also debuting the new docuseries, Hip Hop Uncovered, which “takes a deep dive into the paradox of America’s criminalization of the genre and its fascination with the street culture that created it and still exists within it. Instead of telling the story of hip hop from the top down, Hip Hop Uncovered tells the story from the streets up, as it reveals the untold story of how America’s streets helped shape hip hop culture from an expression of survival and defiance into music’s most dominant genre.

Hip Hop Uncovered debuts on Feb. 14.
