Snowfall: Season 6

Snowfall: Season 6

Snowfall fires on all cylinders nothing but heat, producing one of the most heart-wrenching, compelling endings to a beloved series leaving many fans across the globe flabbergasted.


Round of applause to the creators of Snowfall Eric Amadio, John Singleton, and Dave Andron for creating a moving, compelling series that has stayed true to its message from the beginning of the series – there are no happy endings for those dealing in the drug business.


Snowfall’s season 6 officially premiered on the 22nd of February 2023 on FX with the finale airing on the 19th of April 2023.


Take a look at the early days of crack cocaine, during the budding drug epidemic in Los Angeles in the early 1980s, a crime family decides to make money selling cocaine. Meanwhile, a CIA operative is in charge of the operation, destroying an undisclosed number of lives in America.


If there’s ever been a series to constantly hit on levels, raising the stakes every season, watching a boy become a man, and that man into a king then Snowfall is that series.


You are watching the rise and fall of the Cocaine King of Los Angeles – Franklin Saint and the CIA agent – Teddy McDonald who watched as communities become corrupted by the drug and turned into the devil’s playground.


The series truly hits close to home as we get to see a young intellectual man by the name of Franklin Saint played by Damson Idris, become manipulated by a rogue CIA officer into working alongside him by making quick money for himself at the cost of losing everything his ever held dear to his heart.


Franklin may be incredibly smart, however, deep down his just like many other black men out there, raised by a single mother with the father nowhere to be found, and after nearly being evicted by their landlord, grows the determination to get his mother and himself out of poverty – no matter the cost.


All the man wanted was to get out of poverty, leave a life of dependency and build his empire in real estate, but the CIA’s Teddy McDonald had other plans.


Teddy McDonald sees himself as a patriot, who’s willing to do any dirty work that needs to be done as long as America wins its wars even if that means flooding the streets of Los Angeles with cocaine to supplement their ongoing losing war against Vietnam and get recognized for doing something for the country rather than just referred to being useless as his old-man used to say.


This season highlights the extensive lengths that Franklin is willing to go to recuperate the money taken from him by Tebby McDonald played by Carter Hudson, whilst slowly watching Franklin unravel and become consumed by his greed and pride.


Whether it be torture, killing and even threatening to kill a child, the obsession with this money weighs heavy on Franklin – so heavy the man begins to spiral without direction at the acknowledgment that he is losing his dream, becoming a hopeless drunk at the end of the series just like his father at the start.


Season 6 has been outstanding, starting with the first episode and the entire cast has been splendid to watch.


Somebody give Damson Idris his flowers while the man is still alive because I can’t even explain to you enough just how absorbing, his delivery of the character ‘Franklin Saint’ has been throughout – from the very beginning of the series to the moment the pen dropped.


Even though the season finale does not deliver the ending we hoped for the character we got to witness the start of his drug business and grow it into a cartel, and we also cannot deny that the aftermath was more than he deserved for all the lives he ruined and destroyed when introducing that crack into the black community.


Without a doubt, one of the most depressing ends to a series I’ve seen that brought tears to my eyes.


At the ends of seasons 2 and 3, there’s no way you would have thought that the ending of this series would be so heartbreaking as he walks away from his ‘best friend’ Leon in a state entirely broken down, lost of hope and dreams, a hollow of a once ambitious man.


I recommend Snowfall to anyone interested in watching a series that is rich with character development, greatly written characters, and drugs, with a captivating plot that grows on you and needs a reminder of why crime doesn’t pay.


There is a lot of profanity and violence, drug abuse, sex, and nudity. I wouldn’t recommend anyone under the age of 18 to watch it.


I give Snowfall a 5 out of 5 rating.


For being a masterpiece that will keep you at the edge of your sets of its kind.

Until next time, stay blessed.Snowfall
