The era of Franklin Saint is coming to an end. FX Networks has announced they have renewed the critically acclaimed crime drama, “Snowfall,” for a sixth and final season.

The news of the renewal comes midway through Season 5, which is being executive produced by Damson Idris, who stars in the series as Franklin Saint. 

In the fifth season of “Snowfall,” it’s the summer of 1986, and Franklin Saint (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.

Season 5 is pacing as the most-watched season ever, according to Nielsen and FX. 

Damson shared a teaser for Episode 8 via Instagram along with the caption: 

Next Wednesday 6th April is episode 8 of @SnowfallFX season 5. 

It is my favorite Snowfall episode to date. 

I’m really proud of what everyone accomplished so even if you don’t watch the show. 

I hope you get a chance to watch it live with us at 10pm on FX & HULU

Nick Grad, President, Original Programming said: 

FX first partnered with legendary writer/director John Singleton and the rest of the creative team six years ago to pursue their vision for an ambitious, powerful drama about the explosion of the crack epidemic of the early 80s.

Today, as the fifth season of ‘Snowfall’ reaches new heights of acclaim and viewership, there is no question that this series has become an FX classic drama. 

We are thrilled to order a sixth season that will enable Dave Andron, Walter Mosley, and the rest of the producers to bring ‘Snowfall’ to a climactic finale showcasing the brilliance of everyone involved, from the stellar cast led by Damson Idris, to the writers, directors, artists and crew.

Congrats to the cast and crew on the renewal.
