FX has announced the official premiere date for “Snowfall” season 5 and released a new teaser.
The new season of the gritty drama series from the late John Singleton is set for Wednesday, February 23, 2022.
Set in the summer of 1986, Snowfall follows Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his entire family, who are rich beyond their wildest dreams and on the verge of having everything they’ve ever wanted — right as the ground begins to fall out from under their feet.
The sudden 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 LAPD continues as police and politicians decide the only way to deal with this growing scourge is through force — and the creation of the new CRASH (Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums) units.
The streets of South Central Los Angeles never have 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 is one another as they try not to let greed, resentment and ego tear them all apart.
Eric Schrier, President of FX Entertainment said:
‘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.
Watch the season 5 trailer below.
“Snowfall” season 4 was the cable net’s most-watched series of 2021.
