'Snowpiercer' Renewed For Season 3 Ahead of Season 2 Premiere

TNT has officially ordered a third season of the sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer. Based on the acclaimed film by Bong Joon-Ho, the second season of Snowpiercer premieres on Monday, January 25.

Starring Daveed Diggs, Snowpiercer tackles themes of class warfare and politics through the lens of the inhabitants of a gigantic, moving train carrying humanity’s last survivors years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland.

The official description: At the end of Snowpiercer season one, the survivors of the revolution are trying to pick up the pieces and maintain a fragile peace amongst the now merged classes with Layton (Daveed Diggs) emerging as the train’s leader. Discovering Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is alive and headed their way on a rival train, Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) risks going outside to prevent him from invading Snowpiercer. While she’s out there, it’s revealed that Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Melanie’s daughter, who she thought had died, is alive and has become Wilford’s dedicated protegee. In season two, an entirely new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing. While Layton battles Wilford for the soul of Snowpiercer, Melanie leads the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity. 

Aside from Diggs, Snowpiercer also stars Jennifer Connelly, Sean Bean, Rowan Blanchard, Alison Wright and Mickey Sumner.

Season one of Snowpiercer is now available to stream on HBO Max.
