Snowfall Season 3 Premiere:

In the new season, police are waking up to the growing crack cocaine epidemic, and Sergeant Andre Wright has set his sights on budding Kingpin and next-door neighbor Franklin Saint (Damson Idris) and his people. 

While local law enforcement fights to stem the tide, Teddy McDonald and the CIA are working hard to make sure the flow of cocaine into LA doesn’t stop. To continue funding the war against communism in Central America, Teddy will need to find new routes into the United States using Gustavo “El Oso” Zapata and what’s left of the Villanueva family. 

As the stakes and losses continue to mount, the players truly begin to understand the destructive force they have set in motion, forced to re-examine their own motivations and the cost of continuing forward from here. Season 3 will begin streaming on Wednesday, July 10.
