Shortly after the news revealed that Bong Joon-ho’s stunning film Snowpiercer was getting a remake, fans thought it would be a long time coming. Here we are with Snowpiercer Season 4. TNT revealed the series’ fate before Season 3. According to the source, the star cast and creative team members were hard at work on Season 3 when the network revealed that Snowpierecer would be returning for the fourth run. In addition, there are a few changes that will surprise you.
Based on the film by Bong Joon-ho and Kelly Masterson, Snowpiercer takes place in the near future when the world becomes a frozen wasteland. However, the remaining humanity took shelter in a moving luxury train designed by billionaire Mr. Wilford. The train consists of 1001 wagons and travels around the world 2.7 times a year. Furthermore, the train is designed in such a way that the passenger does not freeze.
Snowpiercer Season 4: What Happens Next?
In the third season, the train was split into two halves because the passengers had to choose whether to follow Melanie or Andre. They had to determine their own future and how they wanted to spend the rest of their lives in this apocalyptic world. However, the finale started with a time jump with Melanie noticing a rocket launch from an unknown source. Is Big Alice behind this? It appears that the rocket was launched from a new location where the other survivors live. It can introduce new characters and a world hidden from the passengers.
Meanwhile, we can expect Wilford to continue playing games with people. He had been Snowpiercer’s leader. He nearly took his own life when Roche injected a massive dose of suspension medicine into his heart. But he escaped his captivity by killing the guards, and now he comes back to make a mess for the passengers. Apart from this, LJ believed that her father would return and claim power. She decided to kill her husband, who was not on her side, and now things will turn drastic for her when she learns behind her father’s motive.

The show’s cast has grown. Now in Snowpiercer Season 4, we’ll see some new faces. TNT recently announced that Agents of SHIELD alumnus Michael Aronov and Clark Gregg will be joining the show’s fourth season. Apart from them, Paul Zbyszewski will replace Graeme Manson and Aubrey Nealon as the showrunners of the series. Due to a creative dispute, they both decided to leave the show. However, Paul is grateful to have joined the immersive world of Snowpiercer, which Graeme and Aubrey have made so beautiful.
Aside from them, Jennifer Connelly as Melanie Cavill will join Daveed Diggs as Andre Layton and Mickey Sumner as Bess Till. Alison Wright as Ruth Wardell returns with Lena Hall as Miss Audrey and Iddo Goldberg as Bennett Knox. Sheila Vand as Zarah Ferami joins Roberto Urbina as Javier “Javi” de la Torre.

But assuming the previous release pattern of the previous two seasons, we can expect Snowpiercer Season 4 to release in late January 2023 or late March. Stay tuned.
