August 9, 2017
FX announced today that Snowfall has been renewed for a second season. The freshman drama is at the midway point of its 10-episode run, and through its first five weeks on the air has been averaging a healthy 5 million total viewers across all its delivery platforms - both linear and non-linear.
While reviews have been mixed, the series is faring well against its competition, ranking as one of the top 5 cable dramas that have premiered this year in key demographics.
Co-created by famed director and screenwriter John Singleton, Snowfall takes place in 1983 Los Angeles, with the crack cocaine epidemic in its infancy. The drama follows various characters from different walks of life who are on a violent collision course that will ultimately have a radical and lasting impact on our culture.
Look for Season 2 of Snowfall in 2018.
