TNT has decided to renew Snowpiercer for a third season, ahead of the season 2 premiere.
The Snowpiercer series is a post-apocalyptic dystopian thriller that premiered on TNT on May 17, 2020. It is based on both the 2013 South Korean–Czech film of the same name, directed by Bong Joon-ho, and the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, from which the film was adapted.
The series, a reboot of the film’s continuity, follows the passengers of the Snowpiercer, a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe carrying the remnants of humanity seven years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland. The series questions class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.
The cast consists of; Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Sasha Frolova, Alison Wright, Benjamin Haigh, Roberto Urbina, Katie McGuinness, Susan Park, Lena Hall, Sheila Vand, Sam Otto, Iddo Goldberg, and Jaylin Fletcher. Rowan Blanchard, Steven Ogg, and Sean Bean will also join the main cast in the second season.
Production on the second season began on October 21, 2019 and was originally expected to end on March 20, 2020. In March 2020, production was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In July 2020, episodes 9 and 10 of season 2 were being filmed.
Snowpiercer season 3 has already started pre-production. Season 2 is set to premiere on January 25, 2021.
