With the gradual return of normalcy after the pandemic, we can expect an unending filming schedule for the upcoming season.

Snowfall Season 5 cast 

No point 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.

What will be the plot of Snowfall Season 5?

Chatting to GoldDerby, co-creator Dave Andron said that the action is likely to “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”.

He added: “And then this kind of pop culture explosion that was brimming in South Central – the rise of gangster rap and you had Straight Outta Compton and those things getting ready to drop and blow up. It’s a huge sea-change moment for the neighbourhood.”
