What will be the plot of Snowfall Season 5?
“The streets of South Central Los Angeles never have been so dangerous as the Saint family navigates the police, the warring gangs, and the CIA. Amidst all of this, the biggest threat the family faces is one another as they try not to let greed, resentment, and ego tear them all apart.” reads the season’s official synopsis.
In an interview with GoldDerby, the show’s co-creator, Dave Andron, said that the action will likely “jump forward a little bit in time” so that they can “get into the meat of 1986 when the violence was really ramping up when you really started to feel the full militarization of the LAPD when the War on Drugs was on its way to reaching its apex when the War on Drugs was on its way to reaching its apex.”
The show’s teaser also featured a lot of familial drama and tragedy around Franklin Saint and his criminal enterprises, as well as some hard-hitting action set in both Los Angeles and beyond.
