Snowfall Renewed for Season 3 at FX


The forecast at FX calls for more Snowfall: The basic cable network has renewed the ’80s-set drug drama for a third season.

Word of Snowfall‘s Season 3 pick-up comes just a day ahead of its Season 2 finale. Titled “Education,” the episode finds Franklin facing the consequences of his actions, while Teddy pulls out all the stops to assist his partners. Lucia, meanwhile, makes a sacrifice to save Gustavo’s life.

“It has been great to see Snowfall‘s audience and critical acclaim grow in its second season,” Eric Schrier, FX’s co-president of original programming, said in a statement. “The creative team has done a fantastic job and we have high hopes for Season 3.”

Dave Andron (Justified) serves as showrunner on Snowfall, which he co-created with John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood) and Eric Amadio; additional EPs include Thomas Schlamme (The West Wing), Michael London (The Magicians) and Trevor Engelson.

Snowfall‘s pick-up follows recent renewals for fellow FX dramas Fargo (for Season 4), Pose (for Season 2) and American Horror Story (through Season 10).
