In an interview with GoldDerby, co-creator Dave Andron said that the action in the fifth season will "jump forward a little bit in time." so that they can “get into the meat of 1986 when the violence was really ramping up, when you really started to feel the full militarization of the LAPD when the War on Drugs was on its way to reaching its apex”.
