Snowfall, FX’s hit series created by the late John Singleton, will air its sixth and final season Feb. 22 at 10/9c. on FX. The two-episode premiere will also stream the next day on Hulu and internationally on Disney+ under the Star banner.
Damson Idris stars as Franklin, the young California man who rose in the ranks of the crack cocaine drug business to reach the top, but the final season follows how he could lose everything. As FX states, the series has followed “how an off-the-books CIA operation contributed to the destruction rock cocaine leveled upon the vibrant community of South Central L.A.” According to the official description:
It’s October 1986 in this sixth and final season, as civil war threatens to destroy the Saint family. Franklin (Damson Idris) is desperate, forced to rob his Aunt Louie (Angela Lewis) and Uncle Jerome (Amin Joseph) after being wiped out by former CIA officer Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson). Meanwhile, Louie has taken over Franklin’s role as Teddy’s sole buyer, undercutting her nephew and creating a competing empire in the process. Franklin is now faced with losing everyone he loves and everything he’s built, and coming through it all will mean out-maneuvering the KGB, the DEA and the CIA, as well as avoiding the LAPD’s fully militarized, fully corrupt, C.R.A.S.H units. When everyone has their backs against the wall, who will they become in order to survive?
Singleton created Snowfall with Eric Amadio and Dave Andron and was executive produced by Singleton. Andron and Amadio are still executive producers with Thomas Schlamme, Trevor Engelson, Walter Mosley, Julie DeJoie and John LaBrucherie. Andron also serves as showrunner with Idris producing.
