Snowpiercer has officially been renewed for a fourth season by TNT. The announcement comes as the third season wraps up production, staying on track with the previous renewals which have come ahead of the premier of each prior season.
Co-heads of the scripted original programming, Sam Linsky and Adrienne O’Riain comments on the post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama series renewal stating, “Snowpiercer has been an incredibly successful series for us that continues to capture the imagination of viewers, grow audience and maintain strong ratings. 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.”
The third season of the series follows Daveed Diggs’ character Andre Layton and his inner circle taking over command of the small pirate train as they search for Jennifer Connelly’s character Melanie Cavill. The first and second seasons of the series are available on Netflix, while season three is slated to premiere in early 2022.
