We knew Franklin’s story was coming to an end, and now we know exactly when.
That’s what FX announced snowfall will air the first two episodes of the sixth and final season on Wednesday 22 February at 10/9am. All episodes of the crime drama’s 10-episode farewell run will also stream on Hulu the next day.
Season 6 begins in October 1986, when “civil war threatens to destroy the Saint family,” according to the official synopsis. “Franklin (played by Damson Idris) is distraught and forced to rob his Aunt Louie (Angela Lewis) and Uncle Jerome (Amin Joseph) after he was obliterated by former CIA officer Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson). Meanwhile, Louie has taken Franklin’s role as Teddy’s sole buyer, undercutting her nephew and creating a rival empire in the process.”
Now that Franklin is on the brink of losing everyone he loves and everything he’s built – brick by brick, mind you – to get out the other end, he must “outmaneuver the KGB, the DEA, the CIA and the… LAPDs dodge fully militarized, fully corrupt CRASH units. If everyone has their backs against the wall, who will they become to survive?”
“I couldn’t imagine telling this story anywhere but FX,” said star and producer Damson Idris previously when the season 6 renewal was first announced. “I’m incredibly proud of the history we’ve all made. Especially the effect snowfall has had on culture. Very rarely does a TV show reach the sixth season mark, and saying goodbye to Franklin Saint will be heartbreaking. But the family and relationships I’ve forged on this journey will last a lifetime. I know John Singleton is looking down smiling proudly.”
snowfall was created by the late John Singleton and Eric Amadio and Dave Andron (who currently serves as showrunner). Executive Producers include Idris, Amadio, Thomas Schleicher, Michael London, Trevor Engelson, Walter Mosley, Julie DeJoie and John LaBrucherie.
