Is Snowfall new tonight on FX? Following the conclusion of the finale last week, you may be wanting more! We also say that knowing full well that the Snowfall story for the first season seemed to be getting better and better as time went along. Everything started to come together in the final couple of episodes, which produced something addictive … though probably not anywhere near as addictive as what was being sold on the show itself.
Here’s the unfortunate news now: You gotta wait. You’ve been hooked, and now you’re going to be dealing with some major withdrawal periods between now and when the show returns to FX in the new year. There isn’t really much word on the subject of firm premiere dates just yet, but the summer seems to be the right spot. Obviously, this is a timeslot that really benefits us at CarterMatt, but at the same time it also serves as a great landing spot for Snowfall in that there really isn’t all that much in the way of competition airing up against it.
Now, let’s have a quick discussion here when it comes to the show’s finale ratings. The most-recent episode of the series ended up generating as a whole a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which is about even for the sort of performance that it drew for the entirety of the season. If it continues to score numbers at around that level, there is no reason to think that the show also will not get a third season, as well. Its consistency is going to be the key in season 2, which is another reason why it strongly benefits FX to not move the show around all that much. They probably run the risk of some viewers not knowing when the show comes back on in the event that they move it to spring or fall, and marketing a TV series is pretty darn hard at this point when there are about a million or so other options out there.
Hopefully in the weeks to come there will be some more news regarding a Snowfall season 2 — while there is a part of us right now feeling a little bit bummed-out over the fact that the first season only had ten episodes, we do think telling a story that tight is important for the sake of building up drama. You don’t want a whole lot of filler in your episodes, and by the time the finale rolls around you do want people on the edge of their seat shocked about every little thing coming their way. If you draw things out more with a longer episode order, maybe the edge-of-your-seat-feeling is gone.
