Season 5 of ‘Snowfall’ will include yet another time jump, according to co-creator Dave Andron.
Snowfall has just barely ceased, but preparations for the following season are already underway. Snowfall is moving forward with its fifth season just over a month after its season four finale aired — but not in the way you would expect. According to co-creator Dave Andron, the TV show will instead involve a time jump.
Season 5 of ‘Snowfall’ skips ahead a year.
In an interview with Gold Derby published on May 21, Andron stated that the writing team returned to work “about a week” earlier and that they are in the midst of a “really challenging time” in Los Angeles.
“It looks like we’re going to move ahead in time a little bit more than we have in the past to get into the meat of 1986, when the violence was really ratcheting up, when you really started to feel the full militarization of the LAPD, when the War on Drugs was on its way to its apex,” he explained.
“And then there was this kind of pop culture explosion in South Central — the advent of gangster rap, and you had ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ and those kinds of things getting set to drop and blow up,” he says. He went on to say, “It’s a significant turning point for the area.”
“And so, without delving into too much character stuff,” Andron said, “from the standpoint of history and kind of where we are in the arc of this thing, it’s a really interesting time for us to plunk our characters into and see what happens.”

How did Season 4 of ‘Snowfall’ end?
The fourth season of Snowfall, which took place during the summers of 1984 and 1985, followed Frankin as he attempted to put an end to a gang war. But his efforts were in vain… This is a condensed version of the narrative. I hope you found it entertaining.
