FX has dropped the first official trailer for Snowfall season 2.
The 1980s crack epidemic-era drama series was created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron.
According to the network, in the show’s second season, Snowfall will continue its riveting story about the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. Season 2 follows the ensemble 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. The players here are: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), the 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 serves as showrunner.
Watch the trailer below. Season 2 premieres July 19.
