Critic Consensus: Snowfall struggles to create a compelling drama from its separate storylines, despite Singleton's accurate recreation of 1983 Los Angeles and a strong lead performance from Damson Idris.

News & Interviews for Snowfall: Season 1
Doesn't so much remold the template for the drug-fueled drama as much as allow very well-drawn and well-performed characters to play within it.
Snowfall will feel like too much work for some viewers. But those who stick with it will be rewarded with a drama that's both involving and important.
Powering through all of them, which I did, yielded flash points of gripping storytelling en route to an extended season finale that mostly took predictable turns in setting up a planned Season 2.
It's not original in a way that's super revelatory, but it certainly looks amazing and tells a tale that's definitely worth an investment of time.
