TNT‘s Snowpiercer has wrapped season three production with the announcement of a season four pickup. Produced by Tomorrow Studios, Snowpiercer seasons one and two are currently available on the TNT app, with season three set to premiere on TNT early next year.
Snowpiercer premiered as the #1 new scripted drama on ad-supported cable in 2020. The second season reached 21 million viewers, ranking as a Top 5 cable drama.
“‘Snowpiercer’ has been an incredibly successful series for us that continues to capture the imagination of viewers, grow audience and maintain strong ratings,” said Sam Linsky and Adrienne O’Riain, co-heads of scripted original programming for TBS, TNT and truTV. “All of our seasons embark on an emotional, unexpected ride and the well-plotted storylines will continue to evolve and remain relevant to audiences. We’re excited to keep the train running into season four.”
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.
Emmy nominee Archie Panjabi and Chelsea Harris join the season three cast, with Mike O’Malley being elevated to a series regular. Snowpiercer season three also stars Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Sheila Vand, and Steven Ogg.
Snowpiercer is executive produced by Graeme Manson, Aubrey Nealon, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, Matthew O’Connor, Ben Rosenblatt and Scott Derrickson, and the original film’s producers, including Bong Joon Ho, Miky Lee, Jinnie Choi, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi. The show is produced by Tomorrow Studios, along with CJ Entertainment. ITV Studios handles international distribution.
