'Snowfall' Season 5 Trailer Teases A Battle Within The Ranks Of The Saint Family

FX has dropped the first full-length trailer for Snowfall season 5, and if this preview is anything to go by, it seems like this year could be the most dramatic one yet for Franklin Saint and family.

Headlined by series star Damson Idris, Snowfall also stars Isaiah John, Angela Lewis, Amin Joseph, Michael Hyatt, Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Alon Aboutboul. Season 4 of the series was FX's most-watched series overall, including both streaming and linear viewing.

As the season 5 description reads:

Set in the summer of 1986, Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his entire family are rich beyond their wildest dreams, on the verge of having everything they’ve ever wanted…right as the ground begins to fall out from under their feet. The sudden and tragic death of basketball star Len Bias makes the rock cocaine epidemic front-page news, the target of both Democrat and Republican lawmakers. Law enforcement is on a warpath and the militarization of the L.A.P.D. continues as police and politicians decide the only way to deal with this growing scourge is through force — and the creation of the new C.R.A.S.H. (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums) units. The streets of South Central Los Angeles have never been so dangerous as the Saint family navigates the police, the warring gangs and the CIA. Amidst all of this, the biggest threat the family faces are each other as they try not to let greed, resentment and ego tear them all apart.

As you can see in the new trailer, it looks like Franklin and his family, with a specific focus on Aunt Louie (Angela Lewis) are continuing to butt heads about the direction of everything. The final season saw Louie and Jerome (Joseph) seek to do more of their own thing.
