‘Snowfall’ Renewed For Season 2
Five episodes into it’s freshman run, FX has renewed John Singleton‘s gritty drama, “Snowfall,” for a second season.
The series based on the crack cocaine epidemic was an instant ratings winner with 2.24 million total viewers for it’s July 5 premiere.
According to FX, Snowfall is averaging 5 million total viewers across all linear and non-linear (VOD/streaming) platforms and ranks in the Top 5 in most key demos among all new cable drama premieres in 2017 on a Live+7 basis: Adults 18-49 (#4), Adults 18-34 (#4) and Adults 25-54 (#5).
Created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic. The story follows numerous characters on a violent collision course, including: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle within a crime family; Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios), the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord.
I will be tuned in. How about you?
