Announced in the spring, Snowfall Season 4 will finally arrive at the end of February on FX. More specifically, the launch is set for Wednesday, February 24 with the first 2 of 10 episodes. Thereafter, the channel will offer one episode per week.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series co-created by the late John Singleton with Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, it tells the story of Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) who makes a fortune selling crack cocaine, teaming up with the CIA and other dealers to get there, which always gets him into more trouble. Season 3 was set in the summer of 1984 as the police began to realize the magnitude of the drug market.
Season 4 begins on January 1, 1985. Ronald Reagan has won his re-election campaign and the demand for crack is still going strong, benefiting Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his team. However, they begin to realize the extent of the damage their product has caused to their community. They are not the only ones, as the Los Angeles Police Department begins to dedicate funds to the war on drugs and powerful people in the political world find themselves questioned about it. The pressure thus begins to rise.
In terms of casting, Snowfall brings together Damson Idris, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Carter Hudson, Isaiah John, Alon Aboutboul, Angela Lewis, Reign Edwards, Amin Joseph, Judith Scott, and Michael Hyatt. They are joined in season 4 by Kwame Patterson (The Oath) and Antonio Jaramillo (Mayans M.C.).
