Snowpiercer series canceled after four seasons


The Snowpiercer TV series, based on Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 film, is coming to an end and is coming to the station with its upcoming fourth and final season.

The dystopian thriller series is currently in production on season 4, with Deadline reporting that the cast’s contracts haven’t been renewed for more episodes, meaning they’re able to book other jobs, similar to the ending of Netflix’s Mindhunter.

The show is produced by TNT in the US, with Netflix holding the rights to show the episodes here in the UK.

A spokesperson for TNT confirmed in a statement to Deadline, “We can confirm that Snowpiercer will end after a successful multi-season run on TNT. Its talented writers, actors and crew have taken an extraordinary premise and brought it to life. in an exciting way.

“It was critically acclaimed, had a significant impact on the post-apocalyptic genre, and now remains in the hearts and minds of fans forever.”

The series tells the story of a train in perpetual motion with the last vestiges of humanity on board, after the world has become a frozen wasteland.

It stars Jennifer Connelly as Melanie, the train’s greeter, and Daveed Diggs as Andre, a former detective living at the back of the train. The show was developed by Josh Friedman and Graeme Manson.

The end of last season saw the train passengers split into two groups, including those who stayed with Melanie and those who joined Layton in New Eden, a warm place outside the train where humans can survive.

The film and series examine issues of class, climate and social injustice and were based on the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette.

It’s unclear if the decision was made to end the series early enough for it to factor into the scripts, or if the filmed ending will leave any threads hanging, with the original intention of more episodes. .

The one thing we’re really sure of is that Snowpiercer Season 4 will be its final journey. As it stands, there will be no Snowpiercer Season 5.

Seasons 1-3 of Snowpiercer are available now on Netflix and the series will return in 2023. For more, check out our dedicated Sci-Fi page or our full TV guide.
