Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel series and film of the same name.
TNT announced today that Snowpiercer has been picked up for a fourth season. The good news comes early, as the dystopian drama just wrapped its sophomore run four months ago. Season 3 has yet to set a premiere date, but just recently finished shooting and is targeting a return in early 2022.
Season 1 of the series debuted in May 2020 and became the most-watched cable program of that month, making it TNT's best premiere in nearly two years. A solid freshman run was followed up with more success in Season 2, where it ranked as a Top 5 drama on cable TV with 21 million viewers across linear and digital platforms.
