The ‘Snowfall’ spin-off centered around Gail Bean in her FX debut

With Snowfall approaching the end of its run, there would be fallout in FX’s early development.

The project would center on Gail Bean as she reprises her role as Wanda, according to Deadline.

The plan is for the spin-off to continue the events of Snowfall as South Central Los Angeles transitions from crack era to gangster rap in the 1990s, amid the growing presence of the Bloods and Crips street gangs.

It’s unclear if any other characters from the original series would be included in the new project.

Snowfall will end its six-season run on April 19.

The series premiered in 2017 and chronicled how the crack epidemic began, the destruction it wrought in South Central Los Angeles, and how an unofficial CIA operation contributed to the crisis.

Damson Idris plays Franklin Saint, a young drug lord in Los Angeles. The cast also includes Angela Lewis, Amin Joseph, Carter Hudson.

The series was created by John Singleton, Eric Amadio and Dave Andron. Damson Idris is also a producer. Andron is the showrunner.

Snowfall is produced by FX Productions.
