Are you ready to watch Snowfall season 5 online? Yes, the FX series is back and we're about to see Franklin Saint and his family's next chapter. So if you're unfamiliar with one of the most underrated shows on TV, it's a good time to tune in, as the crack epidemic is only getting bigger, as Snowfall pulls in a story from the front page.

Snowfall season 5 start time, channel

Date Snowfall season 5 episode 1 debuts today (Feb. 23).
Time 10 p.m. ET / PT
• U.S. — Watch on FX via Sling or Fubo.TV
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

And while the trailer shows that the Saint family is becoming unglued with potential betrayals, the tension behind it all is understandable. Not only is everyone rich, but their money is on shakier ground than ever. 

That's because the law — backed by both Democrats and Republicans — is looking to take down the crack world that's brought the Saints to their new power. And it all starts to fall apart because of the overdose death of basketball star Len Bias, who passed away at the age of 22. 

The police, we see, are stronger than ever, but that's just starting an arms war the likes of which could tear it all down. And Franklin's getting criticism of how he's handling it all, while he's just pushing peace.

Here's everything you need to know to watch Snowfall season 5 online, to see the latest chapter of the story that John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron are telling. Plus, watch a trailer below:

We recommend Sling and Fubo, two of the best streaming services. Sling is the more affordable option, but Fubo offers a broader channel lineup.

In other entertainment news, Spider-Man: No Way Home's digital and Blu-ray release dates have been confirmed — and we need to wait even longer than expected. And in Spider-Man-adjacent news, Tom Holland's coyly teased a Euphoria cameo.
