Only a few episodes into its third season, FX has renewed Snowfall for Season 4. The news was announced by FX on Tuesday.
The drama series, created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, will return to the network in 2020.
“Snowfall has continued its creative leap forward this season with the hard work and contributions of John Singleton and the brilliant performance of Damson Idris. We are grateful to Dave Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London, Trevor Engelson and Walter Mosley for honoring John’s legacy through their commitment to building on the artistic excellence of Snowfall with a fourth season on FX,” said Nick Grad and Gina Balian, Presidents, Original Programming, FX Entertainment.
Here’s the network’s description of the 1984-set third season of the show: Crack cocaine is spreading like wildfire through South Central Los Angeles, continuing its path of destruction and changing the culture forever. Police are waking up to this growing epidemic, and Sergeant Andre Wright (Marcus Henderson) has set his sights on budding Kingpin and next door neighbor Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his people. While local law enforcement fights to stem the tide, Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson) and the CIA are working hard to make sure the flow of cocaine into LA doesn’t stop. To continue funding the war against communism in Central America, Teddy will need to find new routes into the United States using Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and what’s left of the Villanueva family. As the stakes and losses continue to mount our players truly begin to understand the destructive force they have set in motion and must reexamine their own motivations and the cost of continuing forward from here.
Emily Rios, Reign Edwards, Amin Joseph, Isaiah John, Malcolm Mays and more also star.
Series creator Singleton, who made history as the first Black person and the youngest filmmaker ever to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director (Boyz n The Hood), died earlier this year.
