A beloved friend and co-worker goes missing on a desolate mountain; detectives must sort through a list of colleagues with potential motives for murder.

Fun-loving co-workers at a popular chain restaurant appear to be the best of friends until one of their own is found dead on a football field at the edge of town.

A girls' movie night gone bad leads to a not-so-happy ending for this group of college roommates as police investigate a murder that leads them halfway across the state in search of the killer.

Each case unfolds to reveal that someone in this group will be murdered and someone in this group is the killer; the identity of each is a mystery and always a surprise.

It's the summer of 1984, and it's Season 3 of Snowfall.

Police are waking up to this growing epidemic, and Sergeant Andre Wright has set his sights on budding Kingpin and next door neighbour Franklin Saint and his people.

While local law enforcement fights to stem the tide, Teddy McDonald and the CIA are working hard to make sure the flow of cocaine into LA doesn't stop.

To continue funding the war against communism in Central America, Teddy will need to find new routes into the United States using Gustavo "El Oso" Zapata and what's left of the Villanueva family.

As the stakes and losses continue to mount our players truly begin to understand the destructive force they have set in motion, forced to reexamine their own motivations and the cost of continuing forward from here.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Protect and Swerve": Franklin and Cissy look to make an investment in the community, while Andre tries to figure out what is destroying it.

Also, Jerome unveils his new business, a new cook on the streets is competing with Franklin's crew and Teddy's operation in Mexico becomes more complicated.
