Where to Stream Snowfall Season 5: Episode Schedule, Locations, and More
On February 23, Season 5 of the hit crime drama Snowfall will premiere on television, continuing Franklin Saint‘s adventure into the world of crack cocaine distribution. Snowfall, created by Dave Andron, Eric Amadio, and the late great John Singleton, has enjoyed tremendous success over the course of its nearly five-year run, with both critics and general audiences praising the show’s accurate depiction of 1980s Los Angeles as well as Damson Idris’ gripping performance as Saint himself. If you’re planning on diving into the neon-drenched City of Angels, here’s what you need to know before viewing Season 5.
What Is the Purpose of Snowfall?
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, it premiered in 2017 and centres on Franklin Saint, a young guy striving to make ends meet in the chaotic terrain of south-central Los Angeles. Saint eventually finds himself smack dab in the middle of LA’s drug trade, progressively rising through the ranks of this illicit trade while learning more and more about the perils that such a career choice implies. Other notable characters in the series include cranky CIA agent Teddy McDonald and disgraced luchador Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata, both of whom are firmly entrenched in the criminal organisation.
Obviously, that’s only a “tip of the iceberg” synopsis for a programme whose characters alter and evolve tremendously over the course of multiple seasons, but it should suffice to give newbies an idea of how the series begins.
It is, however there is a small snag. Because Snowfall is an FX production, the best time to view it is when it first airs on cable. Perhaps this is owing to the writers’ desire to immerse their audience as much as possible by having them watch it as if it were set in the 1980s, but it’s more likely due to FX’s lack of exclusivity in the streaming realm.
Those who choose to stream, on the other hand, will not have to wait long. The day after new episodes of Snowfall premiere on TV, they will be accessible on Hulu. It’s also worth mentioning that no further Hulu extensions are necessary to view the series, and only a basic subscription is required. When Will New Snowfall Episodes Be Released? Season 5’s first two episodes will air on FX on Wednesday, February 23 at 10 p.m. Pacific Time. Then, until the season finale on April 20, fresh episodes will be published every Wednesday at the same time. As previously stated, people who plan on viewing the episode on Hulu will have to wait until the following Thursday to begin streaming it.
Is it possible to watch the first four seasons of Snowfall on Hulu?
They are, indeed! Seasons 1 through 4 are currently available on Hulu and may be viewed with the cheapest accessible membership plan (if you don’t mind watching some adverts). Whether you’re new to the show or just want to brush up on your knowledge before the new season premieres, Hulu has you covered.
Season 6: Will There Be Snow?
Snowfall has not been renewed or cancelled by FX at this time. However, considering the show’s ability to maintain a continuous gain in ratings during its five-year run, an abrupt termination seems improbable. A timeline for when a renewal decision will be made is also unknown, although the series was renewed last season exactly about the midway point of Season 4, so fans may hear about a new season announcement sooner rather than later.
Are there any more FX shows on Hulu?
They are beyond a doubt. Almost all of FX’s back catalogue is available to stream on the site, which is likely owing to the fact that their material is a little too dark and mature for their new parent corporation, Disney. While Disney+ is the most well-known service associated with the Mouse House, Disney also acquired 20th Century Fox’s majority stake in Hulu, making it an ideal place to dump their more adult-oriented content (though it’s still strange that the notoriously family-friendly company is still funding a cocaine show).
The sheer number of shows accessible on FX alone is impressive. The award-winning network’s legendary material includes the mind-bending horror anthology American Horror Story, the cult classic buddy comedy Wilfred, and, of course, the despicable high jinks of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is still going strong after 150 episodes. FX has also created original programming that is only available on Hulu, such as the dystopian sci-fi Y: The Last Man and the coming-of-age comedy Reservation Dogs, both of which were produced by Taika Waititi.
Shows that are similar to Snowfall in terms of special effects
Due to their thematic and visual similarities, a number of FX series are accessible on Hulu that may be of interest to Snowfall aficionados. These are some of them:
Fargo (2014-2022): A little more comic and sarcastic look into the world of crime, Fargo cleverly expands on the universe of the original Oscar-winning picture, telling a new dry-humored criminal caper with a star-studded ensemble each season.
Sons of Anarchy (2008-2014): Another tense criminal thriller with a noir twist, following the titular band of motorcyclists as they make a living in the illicit arms trade. In some ways, it’s the anti-Snowfall because the bikers aren’t big on drugs, but Charlie Hunnam’s protagonist is similar to Saint in that he struggles to combine his everyday life with his illicit but profitable job.
M.C. Mayans (2018-2022): Mayans M.C. could be of interest to you if you’ve finished Sons of Anarchy and are searching for something new. Mayans M.C. picks off where the first programme left off, telling the storey of a new biker gang as they set out to rule the California-Mexico border.
Scott Ryan gives an outstanding performance as a parent attempting to earn a livelihood in Australia in Mr. Inbetween (2018-2021). Ryan’s character is also a professional hitman, so this is a straightforward notion that is thrown on its head.
The Shield (2002-2008): The programme that launched FX’s career, The Shield moves the focus of crime to the other side of the law, focusing on the lives and times of a corrupt Los Angeles Police Department Captain. It is remembered favourably as a groundbreaking series that continues to hold up today since its topics are still culturally relevant.
