FX has renewed its new drama SNOWFALL for a second season, network presidents of original programming Eric Schrier and Nick Grad announced Wednesday.
Snowfall is a one-hour drama set against the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles in the 1980s. The story follows numerous characters on a violent collision course, including Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur on a quest for power, Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta), a Mexican wrestler caught up in a power struggle within a crime family, Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative running from a dark past who begins an off-book operation to fund the Nicaraguan Contras and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios), the self-possessed daughter of a Mexican crime lord.
Created by John Singleton & Eric Amadio and Dave Andron, Snowfall is executive produced by Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London and Trevor Engelson. Andron serves as showrunner.
The show is currently airing its first season and airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
