Francis Bourgeois will be devastated. Deadline has reported that Snowpiercer season 4 will be the last for the post-apocalyptic series. The fourth season is currently in production, but TNT elected not to pick up the cast’s options, which means that Snowpiercer will be coming to an end.
In a statement to Deadline, a spokesperson for TNT said, “We can confirm that Snowpiercer will end after a successful, multi-season run on TNT. Its talented writers, actors and crew took an extraordinary premise and brought it to life in thrilling ways. It was critically acclaimed, had a significant impact on the post-apocalyptic genre, and now remains in the hearts and minds of fans forever.” Snowpiercer was the last original scripted series still in production on TNT as they’ve been scaling back following the WarnerMedia/Discovery merger.
Based on the 2013 movie of the same name directed by Bong Joon-ho and the 1982 graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette, Snowpiercer deals with class warfare, social injustice, and survival as it follows the passengers of the Snowpiercer, a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe carrying the remnants of humanity seven years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland. The series stars Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Alison Wright, Sean Bean, and more.
Snowpiercer showrunner Graeme Manson stepped down at the end of the third season, leaving season 4 in the hands of Paul Zbyszewski, executive producer of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. There are several new additions to the cast of what will now be the final season, including Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg. Will you be sad to see Snowpiercer come to an end with season 4?
