A drama series that has been hailed as “one of the most complex series to debut on TV this year” has just been picked up for a second season. FX announced the renewal today for “Snowfall.”
Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, made the announcement, noting that the show has been averaging 5 million total viewers in its first season, across all linear and non-linear platforms.
The full announcement, which you can read by clicking here, includes a roundup of some of the rave reviews the first season of “Snowfall” has earned. Among them, Entertainment Weekly calls the show “a fascinating panoramic look at the drug trade — and the world it created,” while USA Today’s Kelly Lawler calls it “one of the most complex series to debut on TV this year.”
Set in the early stages of the crack epidemic in 1983 Los Angeles, the series stars Damson Idris, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Carter Hudson and Emily Rios.
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.
