Ahead of its Spring 2020 debut, Snowpiercer has moved networks from TNT to TBS. Both networks are owned by AT&T’s WarnerMedia. Additionally, the show has already been renewed for a second season, without a single episode airing. Set in a post-new ice age, Snowpiercer follows the remnants of humanity as they inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train.
“Snowpiercer is the perfect show to kick-off TBS’ entry into dramas with intricate storytelling, stunning visuals and first-class acting,” said Brett Weitz, general manager for TBS and TNT. “We believe in the longevity of this series and that audiences will be amazed by the fantastical world that brings to life such relevant social, political and environmental issues.”
Snowpiercer stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, and Jaylin Fletcher. Original showrunner and pilot writer Josh Friedman left the series in January 2018, being replaced by Orphan Black’s Graeme Manson.
