On April 20, 2022, the popular criminal drama series Snowfall on FX came to an end. More than a year after hanging up his cane in the Season 4 finale, Franklin’s life was shown in the most recent season.
The film Snowfall, which debuted in 2017, illustrates the influence of narcotics on Los Angeles culture by taking place in 1980s Los Angeles during the first crack epidemic. It focuses on Franklin’s years-long transition from a part-time marijuana dealer at age 20 to a fully-fledged cocaine drug lord.
The American criminal drama has amassed huge popularity since its debut in 2017. It received raving reviews from critics and viewers alike for its captivating story and engaging cast.
Here is all the information you require regarding Snowfall on FX’s future now that the fifth season has concluded.
FX has extended Season 6 of Snowfall
There is both good and bad news for lovers of Snowfall. On April 5, 2022, FX ordered a sixth season of the show. Unfortunately, the well-liked crime drama series will end after this season.
The renewal was expected because, according to Deadline, Season 4 was FX’s most-watched series in 2021. The fifth season of the show had the most viewership.
According to Nick Grad, president of original programming at FX, “FX first worked with renowned writer/director John Singleton and the rest of the creative team six years ago to pursue their vision for an ambitious, potent drama about the emergence of the crack epidemic in the early 1980s.
“To tell a worthwhile tale, with creative partners you respect and admire, at a network that supports you the entire time and lets you end on your terms. That’s the goal, according to Andron.
“I am very appreciative of the help we received from the entire Snowfall family and everyone at FX, from John Landgraf on down. If only John Singleton could see this through with us.
When Will Snowfall Season 6 Be Released?
We used to obtain new Snowfall seasons in July before the fourth season. Season 4 was supposed to debut in July 2020, however, the COVID-19 epidemic caused the premiere to be postponed by more than six months. The fourth season of Snowfall debuted on FX on February 24, 2021, and the season finale aired on April 21, 2021.
On February 23, 2022, Season 5 of FX made its debut exactly one year later. The event was over on April 20, 2022. Given the release dates of the last two seasons, we can confidently predict that Snowfall Season 6 will premiere in February 2023.

What Will Be The Story Of Snowfall Season 6?
The fifth season finished with unprecedented violence. Everyone has established their pacts. Louie and Jerome withdrew to let Franklin handle the breakdown of his inner circle while they pursued their own agendas. The distraught Franklin declared war on everyone after the conclusion of the fifth season.
The programme will have a very intense conclusion season, according to co-creator and showrunner Dave Andron to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I believe we’ve always tried to keep this show on the lighter side. The show obviously deals with very serious issues and a very dark period in American history. Since there is a lot of humour in the world and it helps people survive on a daily basis, we have attempted to find some humour in that situation.
This final season will, in my opinion, feel a little heavier because the plot must ultimately end in tragedy. The last two episodes of the last two seasons, I believe, settle into a very specific tone after a few moments when we try to make things more lighthearted. And I believe that tone will be more indicative of the final season,” he said.
