Snowfall Season 5 cast
No points to guess that Idris will return for the next season for a new chapter in his life. Other actors likely to reprise their roles are Carter Hudson (Teddy McDonald), Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata), Michael Hyatt (Cissy Saint), Angela Lewis (Aunt Louie), Amin Joseph (Jerome Saint), and Isaiah John (Leon Simmons).
Will we get more of Alton Williams (Kevin Carroll)? Well, viewers didn’t actually see him die in the fourth season. So, it’s possible he’ll come back. De’Aundre Bonds (Skully), Drew “Manboy” Miller (Melvin Gregg), Khadijah Brown (Geffri Maya), and Irene Abe (Suzy Nakamura) died in Season 4. We can also expect some new faces in the upcoming season.
