“Snowfall” is one of the most wonderful shows that beautifully recreates with accuracy the lives of the people who lived in 1983 – an era in Los Angeles. The show is an honest display of the South Central’s crack -Cocaine epidemic. It is an enjoyable show which engages it’s viewers in a world similar to ours, as it neither romanticizes its characters nor exploits their pain.
Snowfall first hit our screen in 2017, it is a that traces the origin of the cocaine epidemic, created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio, and Dave Andron.
The announcement came at a recent Television Critics Association event held in Los Angeles, California, and was part of the FX network’s spate of summer renewals for their most acclaimed shows, including Atlanta featuring Donald Glover, better known by his stage name Childish Gambino.
Starring English actor Damson Idris, Snowfall is a crime drama set in the heart of California during the 1980s, a period when the influx of narcotics into the United States reached a zenith and became a social and cultural phenomenon unmatched before or after. During this time, an ensemble of characters decide to make a living by selling cocaine, and the series portrays their experiences in an anthology format of sorts.
Season Three of Snowfall only debuted back in July and is set to run till the end of September, and that FX has decided to renew it even before the most recent outing’s conclusion is a testament to the series’ sustained fame and popularity since debuting back in the summer of 2017.
Written by Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall was brought to life on television with the help of series co-creator John Singleton, who passed away back in April at the age of 51 due to a stroke.
One of Hollywood’s few creative forces belonging to a racial minority, Singleton achieved fame in 1991 with the release of Boyz ‘n the Hood starring Ice Cube and Cuba Gooding Jr., and became a frontrunner for that year’s Academy Awards instantaneously, even earning Singleton a nomination for Best Director, making him the youngest person to ever do so at the age of just 24.
Release Date: “Snowfall Season 4”
In August 2019, FX made an announcement providing us with the good news that there will be a season 4 of Snowfall. Scheduled to be published in 2020, the shoot of the installment began in 2020 but could not be completed by as a result of the global pandemic. It is not clear when the show will be able to finish it’s filming, but we can expect to see season 4 of “Snowfall” if the filming is completed on time. As of now, the date of its release is uncertain.
Cast: “SNOWFALL 4”
The show Snowfall is loved for its unexaggerated characters, who seem real and familiar. Although the makers of the show have not revealed the cast of the fourth season the charming faces we are likely to see are as follows:
Damson Idris as Franklin Saint
Sergio Peris- Mencheta as Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata
Emily Rios stars as Lucia Villaneuva
Carter Hudson as Teddy
Mc Donald, an undercover agent who works for the CIA.
Amin Joseph as Jerome Saint

Plot: “SNOWFALL SEASON 4”
So far we have seen Franklin go through worst situations, he had a fair share of pain in all the three seasons, now, finally, he has a friend next to him but can he be secure of the friendship he is blessed with?
Season 3 has left us hanging on a cliffhanger with several questions messing up our heads, where is Mel? Where is Lucia, is she even alive? And can Franklin trust Teddy?
The show has brought us to the edge and the only consolation left with its viewers is the hope that we will probably get the answer to our questions in season 4.
It is one hell of a show, that never fails to crackle with intensity and intellect. Fans are eagerly waiting for the show to premiere, fingers crossed in the hope that it will be on our screens this year itself!
