Brace yourself for the final chapter of this incendiary drama. With drug lord Franklin Saint in a desperate situation after being double-crossed and betrayed by family, he’s about to wage war on his enemies to even the score – and for some, the outcome is almost certain to be deadly. Read on for how to watch Snowfall season 6 online from anywhere now.

Snowfall tells a dark chapter in America’s history, guiding viewers through 1980s LA when the crack cocaine epidemic was radically disrupting inner city areas across America.

In the midst of this crisis we once again find drug kingpin Franklin (Damson Idris). After stepping away from the drug trade with a tidy $73 million in his pocket and a baby on the way, Franklin anticipates a carefree future. But when he discovers his former partner Teddy – also a CIA operative – has cleared him out of every last dollar, he’s ready to spill blood.

Even his mother Cissy Saint (Michael Hyatt) agrees that should "fight fire with fire", and we should see them partner up with KGB agent Rubén to find proof that “the CIA has been selling cocaine in the United States” and expose Teddy’s off-the-books operation.

The final season of Snowfall looks to be full of family betrayals, shoot outs, and bullet-strewn action sequences. And as co-creator Dave Andron reiterates, the story of the 1980s crack epidemic "has to ultimately be a tragedy." So….who will survive?

Snowfall season 6 debuts with a dramatic two-part opener on Wednesday, February 22, on FX from 10pm ET/PT. As before, each season consists of 10 episodes in total with each episode broadcast weekly at the same time.

Alternatively, FuboTV has a more comprehensive selection of channels (over 100) starting at $74.99 per month on the entry-level Pro plan. But you can take their free trial for a whirl first before you pay a thing.

If you don’t mind waiting a day, then this FX series lands on Hulu next-day. The on-demand (With Ads) plan costs just $7.99 a month. But, even better is that new subscribers can try the service utterly free for a whopping 30 days.

Can I watch Snowfall season 6 online in the UK?

Throughout its run Snowfall has aired on the BBC, but there is usually a delay of 3 to 6 months between its US UK debuts. 

Season 5 aired on BBC Three with a five-month delay, so Brits can expect a long wait before catching the final season.

Until then, seasons 2 to 5 are available absolutely free with BBC iPlayer – provided you’ve got a paid TV license. Alternatively, you can watch the whole series so far with a £7.99 monthly subscription to Disney Plus via the Star content hub.

Out of the country? Don't worry. You can just use a VPN to alter your IP address, which allows you to stream your favourite TV shows and films no matter where you are.
