Snowfall EP and Writer Walter Mosley: 'John Singleton Is Happy With How Things Turned Out For the Show'

Take away the drugs and the crime, and FX’s gritty ’80s crack epidemic drama Snowfall is a show about choices. Not the gray-area choices of wrong from right, because that’s subjective, but the choices about life’s paths and allegiances. This is something the series’ writers and producers explored in the Season 3 finale when viewers got an alternate-universe version of Franklin’s (Damson Idris) life had he gone the collegiate route. Now that Snowfall has returned for Season 4 (airing Wednesdays at 10/9c) after a year-and-a-half-long hiatus lengthened by COVID, fans will get a greater understanding of Franklin and the continual weight of his decisions. This is a Franklin who is trying to still prove his dominance now that he needs a cane to walk, and a man whose ties to the CIA have become even more twisted and compromised.
