Snowfall Season 6: Snowfall, a drama series on FX, debuted in July 2017 and served as a visceral reminder of how the war on drugs had an irreversible impact on America.
The show featured traditional gangster flick-level quality every week, bringing the genre’s uncompromising gruesomeness and societal commentary on drug peddling and addiction to the screen. It was co-created by the late director John Singleton, who helmed such renowned films as Boyz n the Hood.
While not hesitant to make fans fall in love with characters right before they pump their chests full of bullets, the show made leading man Damson Idris an international star and delivered FX its most-watched show ever.
What is Snowfall All About?
Snowfall is a crack-addiction coming-of-age narrative set in 1980s Los Angeles during the cocaine epidemic. Snowfall has spent five seasons covering Franklin Saint’s (Damson Idris) development from teenager to manhood, charting his rise from an impressionable worker in his uncle Jerome Saint’s (Amin Joseph) street cannabis operation to the city’s top crack cocaine distributor.
Franklin was an unintentional accomplice in the US government’s secret endeavor to assist Nicaraguan Contra rebels in their struggle against Cuban-backed Sandinistas attempting to introduce communism to the region.
Franklin became wealthy, and the government obtained war funding owing to Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a former CIA officer turned obsessive drug dealer who supplied Franklin with the purest cocaine directly from Colombia. Through Franklin, Snowfall viewers got a direct look at how the US drug war harmed the humanity of everyone involved—dealer, user, or bystander.
Singleton was the brains of Snowfall, but he passed away just weeks before Season 3 premiered. However, his impact on the captivating period drama persisted long after he died.
“The wonderful thing is that he left us all the codes to carry on with, and he left us with a passion,” Idris told The Source in 2021. Singleton’s final television show is nearing completion, and the primary characters have either grown beyond recognition or have been irreversibly harmed. All that is left is speculating on how this wild adventure will end.
Snowfall Season 6 Plot
Because the fifth season doesn’t end until April 20, you’ll have to wait until then to find out more about the Snowfall universe’s last chapter. After the fifth season left Franklin locked in a cage with a ferocious tiger and killers lounging around in the grass like killing hippies after unknowingly ingesting LSD, the Snowfall Season 6 and final season might take us anywhere.
Franklin has a new girlfriend, the unusually stoic Veronique, according to the fifth season, and the couple is expecting a kid. Veronique had distanced herself from Franklin after fleeing a drive-by shooting orchestrated by one of Franklin’s foes in the Season 5 opener, and she was stressed out when Franklin was kidnapped.
She doubts his capacity to safeguard her and their child. We’d be surprised if the final season didn’t focus on the formerly impressionable adolescent now trying to be the type of father that only a crack dealer could be. It doesn’t seem impossible that baby powder would be mistaken for daddy’s powder while evading gunshots.
The following is the synopsis for Season 5’s final episode: “Franklin has been whittled down to a mere skeleton. Teddy is putting plans in place for the future. The family is beginning to disintegrate.”
Franklin’s uncle Jerome and his wife Louie break away from Franklin’s empire to launch their own; Franklin’s mother Cissy plots an assassination on the man suspected of killing Franklin’s father—perpetually disheveled and disgraced CIA agent Tedd McDonald—and Teddy loses faith in Franklin after a near-fatal drive-by attack.
The Season 5 finale could be laying the groundwork for a Snowfall Season 6 that focuses on Franklin’s adjustment to his entire world is broken.
Snowfall Season 6 Cast
Because anyone can die in Snowfall, we won’t know who will be in the next season until the credits roll on the season 5 finale. The only actors and actresses who have appeared in at least 40 of the show’s 50 episodes are Carter Hudson (Teddy McDonald), Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata), Isaiah John (Leon Simmons), Amin Joseph (Jerome Saint), Angela Lewis (Aunt Louie), and Michael Hyatt (Cissy Saint).
Devyn Tyler, who played Veronique in Season 5 and is currently carrying one of the most important characters in Snowfall history in her stomach, could also return in the Snowfall Season 6 and final season.
Season 5 took place 15 months before the end of Season 4, allowing Snowfall Season 6 to take us to new locations of the Snowfall universe and introduce us to characters we hadn’t seen before.
