Season 5 Ratings
The average number of people aged 18–49 who watched the fifth season of Snowfall was 0.24, and there were 611,000 of them. Compared to season four, 18% fewer people in the demo and 14% fewer people in the live+same day ratings watched this season (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Even though these numbers don’t include delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how well a show is doing, especially when compared to other shows on the same channel.
There may be other economic factors that affect a show’s fate, but in general, the shows with the highest ratings are kept on and the ones with the lowest ratings are canceled. Find out how Snowfall compares to other shows on FX.
What will Season 6 of Snowfall Be About?
The end of Season 5 set up the last season to be a bloodbath like nothing we’ve ever seen on Snowfall. Everyone has made their own groups, and most of the people they are trying to get rid of are each other. Franklin and his mother Cissy will use the KGB to go after Teddy and anyone else who gets in their way, including family after Teddy, took out all $73 million of Franklin’s drug money from Cayman Island accounts. Franklin left his drug operation to live a more honest life, so Teddy did this. That’s fine with Louie, who promised to kill Franklin the next time she sees him after he pulled a gun on the aunt-in-law he used to love and threatened to kill her. He did this because he thinks her secret business relationship with Teddy caused the fall of his empire and, with it, any chance he had of having a normal life.
Franklin may be the least of Louie’s worries since she and Jerome will have to fill Franklin’s role as Teddy’s main distributor while also dealing with a war Franklin started by telling Kane, the drug dealer Louie tried to have killed in retaliation, that Louie had sent a hit on his life.
Everyone is going after each other, but after taking Wanda to Africa, Leon is probably the only main character who has completely left the drug game. Before leaving at the end of Season 5, the wise gangster told everyone about the danger that will probably be the focus of Season 6: The government of the U.S. Leon told his crew that Congress had just passed a new law that said having one gram of crack cocaine or 100 grams of powder cocaine would get you the same punishment. He is probably talking about the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, which was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan. This law said that anyone caught with more than five grams of crack cocaine had to serve at least five years in prison without the chance of parole. The same went for 500 grams of powder cocaine.
The last season seems to be about different groups fighting inside a mousetrap that the U.S. government is ready to close at any time.
