Snowfall Season 6 Release Date
As mentioned, FX has officially renewed Snowfall Season 6! Our audience will be the first to know. That stated we anticipate it to return in March 2023!
“I couldn’t imagine telling this story anywhere but at FX. I’m incredibly proud of the history we have all made. Especially the impact Snowfall has had on the culture. Very rarely does a TV show get to the sixth-season mark and saying goodbye to Franklin Saint will be heartbreaking. But the family and relationships I’ve made on this journey will last a lifetime. I know John Singleton is looking down smiling proud,” Snowfall star and producer Damson Idris explained.
Snowfall Season 5 Recap
In order to understand season 6, we must examine Snowfall season 5…
In the summer of 1986, Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his family amassed wealth yet they were divided. Louie and Jerome parted ways, while Leon became a standup O.G. in the projects. And Cissy was in Cuba- Alton had been murdered. This strained the family business and came to a boiling point when former CIA agent Teddy McDonald returned to head up the Los Angeles drug smuggling operation.
When a famous basketball player overdosed, rock cocaine received national attention. Franklin’s longtime friend got addicted to crack rock and he tried to put him through rehab yet his neglect left them exposed and Franklin had to personally take him out.
Franklin tried to go legit with a commercial real estate deal (including Louie, Jerome, and Leon) but they didn’t want in. When Teddy returned, he spied on Franklin at the next drop… Saint found out though.
The new LAPD C.R.A.S.H. (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums) units raided Leon and his crew in the projects and he wanted to go to war with the police- literally! Cissy returned from Cuba and sensed the family business tension and decided she wanted in. She also met with a mysterious man who she tasked with killing Teddy McDonald!
Franklin, Teddy, and Gustavo were ambushed at a drug exchange. Hitters also went after the rest of his family including Jerome, Louie, Cissy, Veronique (who was pregnant with Franklin’s child), and even Leon at separate locations. Franklin’s entire money room was emptied- only he and Peaches knew about the place. Ironically, Peaches was missing.
The Saint family found out Kane Hamilton (Kevin’s older brother) was recently released from prison and orchestrated the attacks. He was drunk on vengeance for his sibling’s death…
Teddy was shot in the ambush and was medically treated by an old friend. When he reconvened with Franklin, he demanded his other business never reaches the plug! Jerome had been dealing with mismanaged anger issues, though he was convinced Peaches wouldn’t steal from them. Jerome asked Louie to marry him!
At the wedding, Skully spiked the chocolate fountain with LSD and everyone was trippy. Cissy invited the DEA to surveil them. Franklin journeyed through a rollercoaster of emotions as it revealed feelings he would have never expressed unless he was high. He confronted his own demons of shifting from a bright and promising college kid to a cutthroat drug kingpin. He also called Teddy and told him that he will kill the agent before he murders him.
Louie paid Det. Buckley to kill Kane, he tried by the OG lived. Franklin and Leon found out about Louie’s move, the former didn’t care while the latter felt betrayed. Leon spoke with Wanda about moving away. Louie and Jerome finally told Franklin about parting ways. Although Franklin was upset, he used the opportunity to part ways with Teddy…
In the season finale, Teddy stole all of Franklin’s legal money hidden in offshore accounts. He tried to negotiate to get it back and then threatened to kill Teddy. Franklin also got desperate and nearly killed Louie yet Buckly thwarted that, she severed ties with him and spared his life out of respect for Jerome. Franklin then stole her cash and coke and told Kane she was responsible for his shooting. Avi was killed by Ruben. Gustavo was arrested by the DEA while trying to flee. We learned Ruben was not DEA, but a Russian KGB agent. Cissy finally informed Franklin that they will use the Russian force against the CIA…

- As the war with the Contras comes to an end, confusion and opportunity will arise.
- Gang violence will be visceral and rampant as they war to profit from crack cocaine.
- Will Cissy’s attempt to get Teddy murdered fall back on the Saint family?
