Over the course of the past five seasons, Snowfall established itself as one of FX’s leading crime dramas, but its final chapter is just around the corner. The network just renewed this series for its final season, while also announcing it will be its last.

Nick Grad, president of original programming at FX, released an official statement announcing the show’s renewal after its fifth’s season reached new heights of acclaim and viewership.

“We are thrilled to order a sixth season that will enable Dave Andron, Walter Mosley, and the rest of the producers to bring Snowfall to a climatic finale showcasing the brilliance of everyone involved, from the stellar cast led by Damson Idris, to the writers, directors, artists and crew,” said Grad.

Snowfall was created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio, and Dave Andron, and it premiered on FX in 2017, receiving critical acclaim in the seasons to come. It followed the journey of Franklin Saint, a young drug kingpin Franklin Saint navigating his way through LA during the first crack epidemic of the ’80s.

Damson Idris took on the lead role on this show while the rest of the cast includes Carter Hudson, Emily Rios, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, and Michael Hyatt.
