Snowpiercer Season 2: New Cast Update & What to Expect

Snowpiercer Renewed For Season 3

Snowpiercer Season 2 Update: Leading to its season 2 premiere on January 25, the earthly sci-fi thriller series Snowpiercer has come back for a 3rd season at TNT.

Snowpiercer has come back for season 3 at TNT. Braced the Snowpiercer graphic novel and Bong Joon-Ho’s 2013 film of an equivalent name, which starred Chris Evans, the post-apocalyptic series premiered on TNT in May 2020 after being stuck in development hell for several years.

The dystopian sci-fi series is about seven years after Earth has become a frozen wasteland and follows the passengers of the Snowpiercer, an enormous train that never stops moving and carries the last of humanity. The series casts Daveed Diggs as former detective Andre Layton and Jennifer Connelly as Melanie Cavill, the Voice of the Train.

After years of innovative differences, reshoots, and network changes, Snowpiercer came back for season 2 before its 1st season’s debut, which ranked as the most-seen new cable entertainment program in May.

Now but every week before the season 2 premiere on January 25, Variety reports that Snowpiercer has been renewed for a 3rd season. The renewal makes Snowpiercer the sole ongoing original series left for TNT, with Animalia and Claws both arising on their final seasons.

Snowpiercer season 1 finished on quite a cliffhanger, with the announces that the mysterious Mr. Wilford remains alive and has appropriated Snowpiercer together with his new train. The season 1 finale also sets up season 2 with the twist that Melanie’s presumably deceased daughter Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard) remains alive and dealing with Mr. Wilford. Mr. Wilford’s arrival has been largely promoted for season 2, with promises of an intense showdown between Wilford and Layton, who was given control of the Snowpiercer at the top of season 1.

Like many projects in 2020, production on the highly-anticipated second season was packed up back in March thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

A season 3 renewal is exciting news for Snowpiercer fans, as season 2 hasn’t even premiered yet, which suggests they will expect exciting things to return from the show.

From Alexandra’s still, life to Wilford’s new train and technology, season 1 certainly found a gripping second season. Fans still have a short time before a season 3 release, and with season 2 not have premiered yet, it’s uncertain which characters will survive this season to return for season 3.

However, much of season 2 was already completed and is about to premiere on TNT on January 25. The primary teaser trailer for season 2 was released in October and showed Layton facing off against billionaire inventor Mr. Wilford, played by Sean Bean, a replacement addition to the season 2 cast.
