Tv Season Info

Snowfall continues its riveting story about the infancy of the crack cocaine epidemic and its ultimate radical impact on the culture as we know it. Season two follows our ensemble of characters as they intersect and overlap within the mosaic of Los Angeles as we enter 1984, all of them working toward their ultimate goals of money, power and influence, including: Franklin Saint (Damson Idris), young street entrepreneur beginning to experience the perils of success; Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson), a CIA operative who finds that his off-book drug-funded operation may be vulnerable from unexpected sources, both personal and professional; and Gustavo "El Oso" Zapata (Sergio Peris-Mencheta) and Lucia Villanueva (Emily Rios), the drug running couple who discover the potency of crack and try to exploit it, despite the new dangers involved.

Critic Reviews for Snowfall: Season 2

Credit is shared between performer and creator. Andron, Amadio, and Singleton know what they're doing with Tucker, and their attention to what was missing in Season 1 makes the new episodes a marked improvement, if not a game-changing one.

In Season 2, Snowfall no longer has to validate its characters' ambitions quite so much, and the show is more persuasive for it.

With the pieces falling into place, season two promises to be as good as the first, delivering a speedball of high octane television.

The first season of Snowfall was practically defined by the wilting aimlessness that drew each of the show's four main characters to the crack industry. But the snappier Season 2 is defined by ambition.

Exploring the price of success is one of the few threads in "Sightlines" that suggests season two can expand its story in a meaningful way.

But in time, the season develops its own particular vibe, thanks to a pervasive sense of the time and place and the actors' ability to flesh out their characters with recognizably human details.
