Snowfall Season 5 - All We Need to Know So Far in 2022

After a shaky start, FX’s Snowfall grew into one of the most engrossing and consistent dramas on television, bringing a stunning degree of intricacy and intensity to every episode without ever straining credibility or losing focus of the characters’ gripping individual journeys. And the fourth season looks to be the most thrilling and nerve-wracking yet.

Season 4 has seen all sides of the trade fold in on Franklin and his associates, from his increasing involvement in the Crips vs. Bloods conflict to the intensification of the LAPD’s “war on drugs” efforts to the investigation conducted by Herald Examiner reporter Irene Abe after season 3 forced Franklin (Damson Idris) to confront the sheer cost of commandeering a crack dealing operation (Suzy Nakamura).

When will Snowfall Season 5 be available?

Season 4 of Snowfall was planned to premiere in 2020 (according to Deadline), but it was postponed owing to the COVID-19 epidemic, and production was temporarily halted, as was the case with a slew of other films and shows. As a result, the show was unable to air between February and April of 2021, instead of airing between February and April of Re2021.

Given this, and the uncertainty about how safe it will be to continue filming movies and series over the next few months, we can probably conclude that the show will no longer be tied to a summer release schedule as it was previously. Given the past wait durations of 11 months for season 2 and nine and a half months for season 3, it appears that FX has plenty of time to decide whether to move Snowfall back to the middle of the year or keep it in its present February-April slot.

As a result, Season 5 of Snowfall is expected to premiere sometime between February and September 2022. We won’t know a specific date until the production plan for the season is finalized.

We do know that production for the new season has resumed, which is a very good indication. On October 26, actor Damson Idris posted a photo from the set with only a camera emoji as a comment.

Season 5 of Snowfall will include who?

Nobody is safe in Snowfall, and this is particularly true in Season 4. It’s impossible to say who we’ll see in the following episode at any given time. If things continue as they are, Damson Idris will be the only season 5 presence that’s somewhat safe to count on, both because so much of the show still revolves around Franklin and because the real-life inspiration for the character, “Freeway” Rick Ross, served a prison sentence and is still alive today (via Showbiz CheatSheet).

Clarice’s Devyn Tyler will also be a new series regular named Veronique, according to Deadline. Veronique is expected to bring a refined sensibility to the realm of Snowfall, with an intellect only matched by her will to achieve.

Carter Hudson, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Michael Hyatt, Isaiah John, Amin Joseph, and Kevin Carroll would all be back for season 5 assuming the remainder of season 4’s primary cast stays the same. Melvin Gregg, Geffri Maya, De’Aundre Bonds, and Suzy Nakamura have all been prominent enough that it wouldn’t be strange if they returned, even if Nakamura’s character is currently in a hazardous storyline position.

Season 5 of Snowfall will focus on what will happen next.

Season 4 of Snowfall has been shockingly conclusive in many ways, following the breakdown of Franklin and the CIA’s house of cards. Irene Abe’s unwavering determination throughout the season has now resulted in the publication of her expose of the enterprise.

Now it’s up to the people involved to figure out if this will lead to more investigations and ultimate disaster for Franklin, Teddy, and the others, or whether they’ll figure out a way to keep Irene quiet. Even if they are able to get the Herald Examiner and the government to back off, some harm will be done. Franklin, Manboy, and Skully’s increasing feud ensures that none of the characters will have an easy time in the future.

What appears to be definite about the future of Snowfall is that, if seasons 1–4 were the “rise” phase of the story, with the crack boom propelling the protagonists higher and higher up, we’re going to watch the “fall.” From The Shield to Breaking Bad, crime dramas have a long history of using their final seasons to witness the consequences of their heroes’ deeds.

“I feel like Leon is going through it mentally this season because now you know he was supposed to take the blame for what he felt guilty for, and Franklin kind of talked him out of it,” actor Isaiah John told N’Style Atlanta.
