‘Snowpiercer’ Renewed For Season 3 Before Season 2 Even Premieres!
‘Snowpiercer‘ is showing no signs of slowing down (which is handy, or everyone on board would freeze to death!) as US network TNT announces the series will return for a 3rd Season.
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centres on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out.
‘Snowpiercer’ debuted as the #1 new US cable entertainment program in May with 3.3 million total viewers across TNT and TBS and remained the #1 new cable drama series of 2020. The series premiere marked TNT’s largest premiere since ‘The Alienist’ in 2018, and the show has reached 32 million viewers to date across TNT’s linear and digital platforms. Season 1 is now available to stream on HBO Max in America and on Netflix internationally.
At the end of season one, the survivors of the revolution are trying to pick up the pieces and maintain a fragile peace amongst the now merged classes with Layton (Daveed Diggs) emerging as the train’s leader. Discovering Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is alive and headed their way on a rival train, Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) risks going outside to prevent him from invading Snowpiercer. While she’s out there, it’s revealed that Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Melanie’s daughter, who she thought had died, is alive and has become Wilford’s dedicated protegee. In season two, an entirely new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing. While Layton battles Wilford for the soul of Snowpiercer, Melanie leads the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity.
