In addition to announcing the premiere date, FX also released the first teaser trailer for the show’s upcoming second season.

Snowfall was created by John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Higher Learning, 2 Fast 2 Furious), Eric Amadio (After Sex, Stuntmen), and Dave Andron (Knight Rider, Justified, Past Life). Singleton, Amadio, Andron, Thomas Schlamme, Michael London, and Trevor Engelson are the executive producers, with Andron also serving as showrunner.

The Season 2 Plot: Snowfall continues its riveting story about the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. Season two follows our ensemble of characters as they intersect and overlap within the mosaic of Los Angeles as we enter 1984, all of them working toward their ultimate goals of money, power and influence, including Franklin Saint (Idris), young street entrepreneur beginning to experience the perils of success; Teddy McDonald (Hudson), a CIA operative who finds that his off-book drug-funded operation may be vulnerable from unexpected sources, both personal and professional; and Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata (Peris-Mencheta) and Lucia Villanueva (Rios), the drug running couple who discover the potency of crack and try to exploit it, despite the new dangers involved.
