WARNING: This section contains spoilers for Snowfall season 2
Snowfall follows the origins of the Los Angeles crack cocaine epidemic in the 1980s.
The show weaves between intersecting storylines including those of drug dealer Franklin Saint (played by Damson Idris) and CIA operative Teddy McDonald (Carter Hudson).
Idris will be back as Saint this series after viewers last saw him in Black Mirror: Smithereens alongside Andrew Scott.
The new season is set in the summer of 1984 and sees police getting increasing concerned about the growing drug epidemic.
One key plotline this season will be Sergeant Andrew Wright (Marcus Henderson) becoming increasingly suspicious of Saint.
Series two also ended on the explosive revelation from McDonald to Saint that he was working undercover for the CIA.
A trailer for series three shows that this will be a point of conflict as McDonald says to Saint: “I am the only reason that you are breathing free air right now.”
The show was created by American film maker John Singleton who passed away in April, 2019 after suffering a stroke.
At the premiere Idris told The Washington Post: “The crew is fully diverse. He hand-picked everyone and he empowered people. He left people so many codes and he left us with the confidence to go on.”
