TNT is going off the rails on their smash hit Snowpiercer with a very very special announcement today!

TNT announcement from YOUTUBE!

At the end of “Snowpiercer” season two, Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Ruth (Alison Wright), who were banished to Big Alice’s compost car, plotted to take back Snowpiercer. With the help of Javier (Roberto Urbina) and Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Layton and Ruth made it back to Snowpiercer and rallied with their supporters. Josie (Katie McGuiness) destroyed the Aquarium car separating Snowpiercer’s head from the remaining 1,023 cars. With Layton in command of a 10-car “pirate train,” he and his team rushed to Breslauer Research Station to find Melanie (Jennifer Connelly).
Season three picks up with Layton (Diggs) and his inner circle commanding a small pirate train in search of Melanie (Connelly) and a possible warm location to restart civilization, aided by a newfound survivor. Back on Snowpiercer, Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is consolidating power, foiled only by secret allies of Layton’s hidden on the train, committed to the cause.

Press Release from TNT


Who is this newfound survivor? Knowing that some of the cast has been upgraded to series regular. Who could possibly come back as a special guest either from out of the drawers or in flashbacks? All we do know is the will be a small, time jump between seasons 2 and 3. This makes sense as the pirate train is on the search for Melanie. In season 2 we found out that there are other stretches of track along the planet’s surface. Where do you think we could be headed from here? How will Layton and the Pirate crew link back up with the Big Alice lead Snowpiercer? Knowing what we know from the original film, is this going to tie into it eventually or are we getting a whole other story? The same could be said of what we learned from the Titan Comics!

Luckily, the main story of the TV series has only covered several months so a time jump gives the writers room a few years headway to work into this timeline.

Are you as excited as we are about this announcement? What new cars are you looking forward to seeing? Will new alliances will be forged? Can Wilford become a benevolent leader of the new world order? WHO KNOWS?!

So, what do you think of this announcement?
