Disney’s FX has announced that the acclaimed, hit drama Snowfall will premiere its fifth season on Wednesday, February 23rd at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and stream on Hulu the next day. The premiere will include the first two episodes.
Snowfall’s fourth season reigns as FX’s most-watched series of 2021 inclusive of all forms of linear and streaming viewing.
Eric Schrier, President, FX Entertainment said in a statement:
“Snowfall is enjoying a justly deserved burst of success with season 4, and we’re excited to follow it up with another explosive season early next year. Our thanks to everyone on the creative team, the remarkable cast and crew who make Snowfall one of the best series on television.”
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.
Created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Amadio, Michael London, Trevor Engelson, Leonard Chang, Walter Mosley and Julie DeJoie. Damson Idris also serves as Producer. Andron serves as showrunner. Snowfall is produced by FX Productions.
The fifth season will consist of ten episodes and the first four seasons of Snowfall are available to stream on Hulu.
The first three seasons are also available on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland, no details have been announced on when the latest seasons will be released on Disney+ in the UK, now that FX’s deal with the BBC has finished.
