Snowfall is a stylish, fast-paced criminal drama that chronicles the 1983 crack epidemic in America and the accompanying ‘war on drugs’ that left a devastating legacy on the country.
The deceased John Singleton, who was known for directing drama films like as Boyz N the Hood, co-created the television series. Following five seasons, Snowfall has become the most-watched original programme on the FX television network, with its fan base continuing to increase. Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) is the protagonist of Snowfall. Throughout the course of the series, he transforms from his uncle Jerome’s protégé in the Los Angeles drug world to a deadly kingpin.
After Singleton’s passing in 2019, it became the responsibility of co-showrunner Dave Andron and the main actors to continue the series’ legacy. Idris told The Source at the time, “I made the creation of art our only objective. And put art into the universe that would make Singleton proud.” Today, as the series approaches its epic end, it is time to discuss the Snowfall season 6 release date, plot, and cast, among other details.
Snowfall Season 6 Release Date
The sixth season of Snowfall will start with two episodes on February 22, 2023. The drama series will thereafter consist of weekly installments.

Snowfall season 6 Plot Speculation
With drug dealer Kane seeking vengeance after Franklin informed him that Louie attempted to have him assassinated, we may expect treachery, betrayal, and bloodshed in season 6 of Snowfall, but only if the U.S. Government gets to the central players first.
According to Leon, Franklin’s best buddy and former second-in-command of The Family, the United States Government is cracking down on drugs more than ever before. Given that Snowfall is set in the 1980s, it is likely that Leon is alluding to Ronald Reagan’s Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, which mandated that the possession of five grammes of crack cocaine would result in the same punishment as the possession of 500 grammes of powder cocaine.
Showrunner Dave Andron indicated in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that Season 6 will be more “heavier.”
“I believe we’ve always attempted to maintain a lighthearted tone on this show. Clearly, the show is about very serious matters and a horrible period in American history. We’ve attempted to find some humour in that, as there is a great deal of comedy in the world’s issues and it’s part of how people survive day to day. I believe that this final season’s story must ultimately be tragic, and that this final season will seem heavier,” he remarked.
“In the last two seasons, you can tell when we’re attempting to lighten things up, and then in the last two episodes, we settle into a very precise tone. And I believe that this tone will be more prevalent in the final season.”
