Snowpiercer season 3: TNT renews series before season 2 starts airing

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

I haven't watched the first season of the TNT series Snowpiercer, which was inspired by director Bong Joon-ho's 2013 film of the same name (watch it HERE) and its graphic novel source material, and not even fans of the show have seen its second season, since that doesn't start airing until January 25th. But TNT obviously expects season 2 to go over quite well, because they have now officially ordered a third season of the show.

Snowpiercer is set 

more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland. The series centers on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1001 cars, that circles the globe. As it does, issues of class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are raised.

The series stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Sean Bean, Rowan Blanchard, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, and Steven Ogg.

Tomorrow Studios produces Snowpiercer with CJ Entertainment, the producers of the film. Tomorrow Studios' Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, showrunner Graeme Manson, Matthew O'Connor, Ben Rosenblatt, and film producers Bong Joon-ho, Miky Lee, Tae-sung Jeong, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun, and Dooho Choi serve as executive producers. Christoph Schrewe is a co-executive producer.

Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson also still has an executive producer credit, even though he directed the pilot episode under a different showrunner and didn't return to helm reshoots because he had creative differences with Manson. Those reshoots were handled by James Hawes.
