Sergio Peris-Mencheta’s fall continues…
FX has given Snowfall, starring the 45-year-old Spanish actor, an early renewal for a fifth season, just three episodes into Season 4.
The crime drama from the late John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron is seeing ratings spurt in its fourth season to date, up 41% over the same period in Season 3 and averaging 5.1 million total viewers across all platforms.
Snowfall, which airs Wednesdays at 10:00 pm, takes place in the 1980s in South Central Los Angeles. The demand for crack cocaine is high, and while our crew of dealers led by Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) are benefitting greatly from the rising tide of addiction, they are also starting to become aware of the damage the drug is doing to the people and the place they love.
With the entire nation taking note, the LAPD is diverting serious money and resources to the “war on drugs.” Politicians’ phones are ringing. Powerful people are concerned from the hallways of the White House to those of CIA headquarters, where there are whispers that one of their own may be involved in this burgeoning epidemic.
In addition to Peris-Menchata and Idris, the series also stars Carter Hudson, Isaiah John, Amin Joseph and Angela Lewis also star. The Season 4 finale will air on April 21.
