Spoilers for Snowpiercer are underneath.
Snowpiercer is still going strong, but season four brings the finish line into view.
A extremely early season renewal by TNT in July 2021 (when season three was still in production) gave the show a bright future, but it now appears that the train is coming to an end after one final densely packed batch of episodes. What actually is happening, then? Join us as we continue our adventure to learn what is occurring in season four of Snowpiercer.
When may the next fourth season of Snowpiercer air?
Season four of Snowpiercer has been announced, but there is a catch. It was revealed that the epic series would finish after this run of episodes in June 2022. According to a TNT spokeswoman, “We can confirm that Snowpiercer will finish following a successful, multi-season run on TNT.”
“Its gifted authors, performers, and crew took an amazing notion and thrillingly brought it to life. The post-apocalyptic genre was greatly influenced by it, and it was well praised. As a result, it will always hold a special place in the hearts and minds of fans.”
The fourth and final season is now under production.
Executive producers Graeme Manson and Aubrey Nealon were replaced as showrunners for season three in 2021 by Paul Zbyszewski (Agents of SHIELD, Helstrom).
In an official statement, Zbyszewski remarked, “I’m extremely thankful to everyone at TNT and Tomorrow Studios for allowing me to join the captivating world of Snowpiercer that Graeme and Aubrey have so brilliantly designed and built.”
We’re planning a fantastic fourth season,” he said. And I’m looking forward to working with such a fantastic cast and crew as we continue to discover new worlds, solve new mysteries, and establish relationships amongst characters.
The final season’s release date has not yet been determined, although seasons one and two will debut in May 2020 and the final week of January 2021 and 2022, respectively.
This release schedule appears to apply to season four as well.
Who is in the Snowpiercer season 4 cast?
The cast of Snowpiercer is vanishing more quickly than humankind did when this perpetual winter first arrived. But despite that, there are a few actors that are a sure bet to return, including: Mike O’Malley, Alison Wright, Daveed Diggs, Lena Hall, Mickey Sumner, Sam Otto, Sheila Vand, Roberto Urbina, and Jaylin Fletcher.
The lone significant fatality in the third season finale occurred when LJ Folger choked on her late father’s prosthetic eye by accident. like you do. Annalise Basso won’t be coming back the next year, but what about Mr. Wilford?
Sean Bean’s return following the events of season three is yet unknown. Which, although regrettable, is not the only bad news. Season four of Snowpiercer has already welcomed two new cast members: Michael Aronov from The Americans and Agents of SHIELD’s Clark Gregg. Will one of them fill the evil void Mr. Wilford’s departure left?
What will happen in the fourth season of Snowpiercer?
Snowpiercer certainly like shaking things up, often shocking us with plot twists that fundamentally alter all we previously knew about the single-location drama.
This time, the 1,029-car train was divided in the season three finale between those who opted to stay with Melanie and those who chose to accompany Andre to a fresh start in New Eden. It feels surprisingly optimistic for such a doomsday scenario that the passengers may now pick their own future rather than starting yet another battle.
After that, the last episode jumps forward three months, where Melanie sees a missile launch from an unidentified position on the horizon. Did Big Alice, who is presumably currently in New Eden, send it? That doesn’t seem plausible considering how much further Andre’s group ought to be at this point.
It’s more plausible that the rocket was launched from a brand-new, uncharted area where there are more survivors. In fact, it is most likely how the new characters played by Clark Gregg and Michael Aronov will be introduced on the show. And it wouldn’t surprise us if Wilford somehow got involved in all of this as well.
But what precisely does the rocket serve? Is it a kind of beacon, perhaps? Does it signify another another effort to raise the Earth’s temperature through the atmosphere?
Throughout season three, Wilford and Layton were engaged in a kind of power struggle as Wilford attempted to take control of Snowpiercer from Layton since he doesn’t think Layton is competent to manage it on his own. He was only partially successful since he took over some of the railway carriages to create his own train and then returned it when Layton threatened him. Is this his trick in return?
When the new showrunner Paul Zbyszewski claimed that season four will have “new riddles” for us to ponder, he wasn’t joking.
