The American crime drama series, Snowfall gained significant popularity among audiences in a short time. After giving back-to-back successful seasons, Snowfall Season 6 received its confirmation.
Set in 1983 in Los Angeles, Snowfall shows the city at a time when crack became an epidemic in the area. It deep dives into the vast impact cocaine had on Los Angeles and other cities. It changed the lives of many individuals, creating numerous drug addicts. The show has multiple storylines running side by side, all following the same central theme. We see how the lives of several characters eventually intertwine; a Mexican luchador Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata, 20-year-old drug dealer Franklin Saint, a Mexican Crime boss’s niece, Lucia Villanueva, and a CIA operative Teddy McDonald.
The show’s creators are John Singleton, Dave Andron, and Eric Amadio. The pilot season aired on FX on July 5th, 2017. Owing to its popularity, the show soon received renewals for seasons 2-5. Currently, Snowfall has an impressive rating of 8.2 out of 10 on IMDb. Furthermore, it has an overall rating of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Given these splendid figures renewing the show for a new season seemed like a no-brainer.
Snowfall Season 6 Cast
The exact cast of Snowfall season 6 remains a mystery. Although, this is no surprise as the upcoming installment is still in its initial phases. The team may reveal more information regarding the show’s cast as the weeks pass.
As of now, we believe that most of the cast from season 5would reprise their roles for the latest season. The following actors are likely to appear in season 6:
- Teddy McDonald by Carter Hudson
- Lucia Villanueva by Emily Rios
- Franklin Saint by Damson Idris
- Aunt Louie by Angela Lewis
- Lion Simmons by Isaiah John
- Cissy Saint by Michael Hyatt
- Jerome Saint by Amin Joseph

Snowfall Season 6 Release Date
The fifth season of Snowfall ended in April 2022. Considering the season’s immense popularity, FX soon gave the green light for a new installment. Only a few months have passed since the previous season ended. However, production for Snowfall season 6 seems to be in full swing. The team is busy filming and hoping to wrap things up by the end of the year.
According to FX, the show will air its 6th installment on February 22nd, 2023. Until now, the team seems to be on track with its schedule. Hence, it seems unlikely that there to be any delays.
We are still months away from the release of Snowfall season 6. Therefore, it is no surprise that the sixth season’s synopsis is not out yet. As per reports, the sixth season would likely be the final season for this critically acclaimed crime drama series.
We expect season 6 to pick up from where the previous installment left off. The final moments of the last episode of season 5 showed Franklin stuck in a cage with a fierce tiger and attackers lying in the grass after unknowingly taking high doses of LSD. The upcoming installment would potentially show how Franklin escaped from this precarious situation.
Moreover, a large part of season 5 revolved around FRanklin’s relationship with Veronique (his new girlfriend). The couple is now expecting a child. Unfortunately, due to Franklin’s illegal career and formidable enemies, she chose to keep his distance from him.
Veronique was startled when she witnessed a drive-by shooting aimed at killing Franklin. His inability to protect himself and her led her to doubt his capabilities as a father. Nonetheless, it would be interesting to see how Franklin navigates his way through fatherhood. It would be interesting to see this young dad mistake cocaine for baby powder (or vice versa).
With filming still in its initial phases, it is unlikely that a trailer would release anytime soon. There are still over five months left till season 6 releases. This gives the team ample time to wrap up filming and release teasers and trailers for the upcoming season.
Fans can expect the trailer for Snowfall season 6 to drop about 2-4 weeks before the show’s release. While we wait for the trailer, fans can head on to the Instagram and Twitter pages of some of the cast members to catch some behind-the-scenes action.
