Amin Joseph Has Likely Left Snowfall

Although FX hasn’t formally announced the departure of Amin Joseph from ‘Snowfall,’ the actor had expressed his gratitude to the viewers for supporting him, which indicates that Joseph had left the crime drama. “I gave this everything I got. Thanks for the ride,” the actor shared after the broadcast of the sixth episode of the sixth season. Since Jerome is dead, Joseph’s departure isn’t a surprise. The storyline of the beloved “unc” seemingly gets concluded with his death, which opened a gateway for the actor to leave the series.

Having said that, we may haven’t seen the last of Joseph’s Jerome in the series. According to IMDb, the actor is a part of the cast of the eighth and ninth episodes of the sixth season. However, Joseph’s character Jerome’s appearances in these two episodes must be limited to flashback sequences, that too possibly scenes from previous seasons of the series. Jerome may also appear in the visions of Louie, who kickstarted the conflicts against Kane, which ultimately killed her husband. Although Jerome is dead, his death may remain an integral part of the rest of the show’s episodes since Louie and Franklin are expected to do everything they can to honor the memories of the latter’s uncle.

Even though Jerome’s death and the show’s conclusion also mark the conclusion of Joseph’s incredible performance as Franklin’s uncle, the admirers of the actor can await the premiere of FX’s Western series ‘Justified: City Primeval.’ The actor plays Jamal Wilder in the series co-developed by Dave Andron, a co-creator of ‘Snowfall.’
