Snowfall Earns Season 4 Renewal At FX
Less than a month after the premiere of the third season of the well-received crime drama, FX has given a fourth season order to the John Singleton co-created Snowfall, which will premiere sometime next year.
“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,” Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX Entertainment, said in a statement. “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.”
Continuing the tale of the early days of the crack cocaine epidemic/empire, the third season is set in the summer of 1984 as rock is spreading like wildfire through Los Angeles. Local police fight to stem the tide, while Teddy (Carter Hudson) works hard to make sure the flow of cocaine doesn’t stop as the DEA turns up the heat on Colombian suppliers.
Snowfall was created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron and is executive produced by Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron serves as showrunner.
Season 3 launched on July 10 on FX to continued positive reviews from critics, as well as strong ratings, averaging just under 700k viewers per episode, very much on par with the nearly 800k average from the previous seasons and remains a solid performer for the now Disney-owned network.
