US network TNT has bought an early ticket to board Snowpiercer, as they announce the series has been renewed for a 4th Season as filming wraps on Season 3, due to arrive in Early 2022.

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.

At the end of season two, Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Ruth (Alison Wright), who were banished to Big Alice’s compost car, plotted to take back Snowpiercer. With the help of Javier (Roberto Urbina) and Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Layton and Ruth made it back to Snowpiercer and rallied with their supporters. Josie (Katie McGuiness) destroyed the Aquarium car separating Snowpiercer’s head from the remaining 1,023 cars. With Layton in command of a 10-car “pirate train,” he and his team rushed to Breslauer Research Station to find Melanie (Jennifer Connelly).

Season three picks up with Layton (Diggs) and his inner circle commanding a small pirate train in search of Melanie (Connelly) and a possible warm location to restart civilization, aided by a newfound survivor. Back on Snowpiercer, Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is consolidating power, foiled only by secret allies of Layton’s hidden on the train, committed to the cause.

There will be some new faces next season as Emmy nominee Archie Panjabi (‘The Good Wife’, ‘I Know This Much Is True’, ‘Blindspot’) and Chelsea Harris (‘Designated Survivor’) join the season three cast, with Mike O’Malley (Roche) being elevated to a series regular. Season three also stars Oscar winner?Jennifer Connelly, Grammy and Tony Award-winner Daveed Diggs, Sean Bean, Rowan Blanchard, Emmy nominee Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Tony Award?winner and Grammy?nominee Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, and Steven Ogg.

The drama premiered as the #1 new scripted drama on all of ad-supported cable in 2020 in the USA. The second season reached 21 million viewers across linear and digital in L+7 viewing, ranking as a Top 5 cable drama.
