*”Snowfall” returned for its third season Wednesday, July 10th. We caught up with the cast at the LA premiere and they shared their thoughts on the season and how they were affected by John Singleton’s passing.
Director and producer John Singleton was the creator of “Snowfall” and in true John Singleton fashion, he made art that told the not so pleasant truths about our country.
Singleton wanted to tell the story of how crack cocaine entered Los Angeles and how the government played a major part.
“I believe this story was really import to John because, particularly the involvement of the CIA and drugs in South Central, was because many African Americans are in positions today and they have no answers to why they are in those positions,” says Damson Idris.
Snowfall has become a hit with each season having more drama and action than the last.

“Episode one is crazy, and it’s the weakest one,” said Angela Lewis. Fans can expect a roller coaster of emotions this season as Franklin and his crew faces new competition with rival drug dealers. “That brick ain’t gone come with nothing but trouble.”
Amin Joseph reminds us of what his character Jerome said to his nephew Franklin played by Damson Idris. In the first episode, we see Franklin not only dealing with a rival dealer but Andre, the neighbor police officer, is putting the heat on Franklin and letting him know how much he knows about Franklin’s operation. The entire cast is very excited for viewers to see this season saying it’s the best season yet and the best show on television.
As everyone shared their sentiments about John Singleton, we had to lighten the mood a bit with a little John Singleton movie trivia. We gave the cast a line from a John Singleton film, whether one he produced or directed. Watch the video above to see who got it right and make sure you tune in to FX every Wednesday night for season 3 of “Snowfall.”
