TNT has released a teaser and announced the release date for the second season of Snowpiercer. The series will return on January 25th. The announcement came during the panel discussion of shows' cast at NYCC metaverse.
During this afternoon’s virtual panel, Snowpiercer showrunner Graeme Manson joined stars Bean, Blanchard, Connelly, and Diggs to tease the power struggle that will continue to dominate the narrative in Season 2, causing a dangerous rift aboard Snowpiercer, with passengers’ loyalties divided between Wilford and Layton. In the latest installment of the series, Wilford offers up a new train, new technology, and a new plan for humanity, as Melanie comes upon a discovery that could radically alter its fate.
In Season 2, Sean Bean takes on the role of Mr. Wilford, the visionary behind Snowpiercer, who rigidly divided the train’s sections by social class, provoking a war with passengers, including Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs). First appearing in Snowpiercer’s Season 1 finale, Blanchard plays Melanie’s daughter Alexandra, who was once thought dead, but is really alive and well, serving as Wilford’s protégée.
Based on a 2013 film by Oscar winner Bong Joon-ho, Snowpiercer is set on an enormous train of the same name, which perpetually circles the globe, following an event that turned the world into a frozen wasteland. Addressing such timely topics as class warfare and social injustice, the post-apocalyptic, sci-fi thriller charts the journey of those few humans left alive, as they engage in a revolutionary struggle aboard the train.
Developed by Manson and Josh Friedman, Snowpiercer’s first season is available to watch on Netflix, and it will be available on HBO Max in January. Season 2 will also arrive on Netflix the following week after its premiere on TNT, and the episodes will be added weekly on the streamer. Snowpiercer season 2 will also arrive on HBO Max after the season 2 finale at TNT.
