Spoilers for each 2nd episode of the Snowpiercer season follow.
The last season of Snowpiercer took us on a wild ride, and Season 3 of Snowpiercer seems to be pushing things forward. From Sean Bean’s introduction to Mr. Wilford and his life in Big Alice to always finding a warming country and Melanie’s supposed death in the finals, the tensions are high on the train before the start of the third season.
By the end of Season 2, Layton was traveling on a pirate train with some of his closest allies and enemy trusts, while at Snowpiercer, Wilford tried to hold on to his strength as he handled the train’s detachment and was almost killed.
The future of this TNT and Netflix show looks promising, but if you haven’t kept up with the announcements, there are some clues and hints that you may have forgotten exactly what happens next. Fortunately, we have covered you. Here’s everything you need to know about Snowpiercer Season 3 so far.
Snowpiercer Season 3 Release Date: When Can We Expect It To Be Back?
Snowboarder was renewed for a third term even before the start of season 2. Something similar also happened last season, showing how much faith TNT has in the show and the fans who keep it running. The popularity of the series abroad on Netflix is likely to help fit.
So far, the show has been pretty fast, and it’s been less than a whole year between seasons when the first series was released in May 2020 and the second hit the screens in January 2021, and filming continues despite the pandemic.
Production for Snowpiercer Season 3 will be announced began in early March In Canada and is expected to continue until the end of July this year, which means we can expect Snowpiercer to come to our screens by the end of the year in the best position. However, the beginning of 2022 is more likely.
Snowpiercer Season 3 Actors: Will Melanie Return?
Season 2 of Snowpiercer introduced us to many new faces from Big Alice, including Sean Bean’s character Mr Wilford, Rowan Blanchard’s Alex (though he made his debut in Season 1 finals) and Hospitality Manager Kevin, played by Tom Lipinski. Alongside them we had Headwoods (Damian Young and Sakina Jeffrey) and Sykes (Chelsea Harris).
We expect them all to return next season along with Snowpiercer’s permanent Daveed Diggs, Andre Layton, Alison Wright’s Ruth, Mickey Sumner’s Till, Lena Hall’s Miss Audrey and Katie McGuinness’s Joses.
The fate of Melanie Cavill, played by Jennifer Connelly, is still uncertain, but her return to Season 3 is not. In the final of the second season, when Layton and Alex arrive at the research station, they find Melanie missing. We are led to assume that he is dead, even though all TV drama fans know that no character has ever died before there are bodies.
Talking TV line, responsible producer Becky Clements addressed this ambiguity and asked about the possibility that some invisible nomads may have saved him from the screen. “He was able to; it might be a ‘jump shark’ a little bit of everything so far, but … I don’t know if I’m going to save that he’s ‘done,’ but I don’t know that he’s alive.” To Snowpiercer next season. “We’re glad Jennifer is joining us for Season 3.”
The season 2 final also suggests that Javi (played by Roberto Urbina) has been killed. But to the death of an engineerClements ’vagueness also seemed to suggest a possible return to him. “You are surprised. [Laughs] That’s all I say, ”he teased.
One character that fans expected to die for was Wilford, especially as Sean Bean is famous for portraying prematurely dead characters like Boromir Lord of the Rings or Ned Stark The Throne. Still, despite Alex strangling his throat in the Season 2 final, Wilford got the credits alive. And since Bean is reportedly trying to reverse his curse by avoiding roles where the characters die, Wilford might be here to stay.
For the additions of new actors, Good Wife actress Archie Panjabi will board the Snowpiercer train in the role of Asha (via TV line). Still, it’s unclear how he’ll be written for the show – because all that’s left of humanity is already on the train. Why wouldn’t we have seen him before? “Ohhh, it makes Season 3 very exciting – definitely worth tuning in,” teased Clements.
More show announcements are expected to arrive in the coming months, as Clements said Deadline that Panjabi is not the only new addition to actors. “We have a big, new character in season 3 and a couple of smaller characters that bring new knowledge to our world.”
Snowpiercer Season 3 Story: What Happens Next?
The second season ended in the bedrock: Layton and Alex stole a ten-car pirate train alongside Bennett, Till, Josie, captive Miss Audrey and Sykes. Ruth, meanwhile, is still on the main train with Wilford, who knows of her disappointment – Zarah, who is still pregnant, is also present.
While Wilford still clings to 1,024 cars, “everyone is trying to find their place in the new world.” said Clements for the coming season. He also teased that we might see a time jump for Snowpiercer season 3. “In season 3, there will be little time jumps – not significant, but enough to make the audience really show in an effective and interesting way what the new world order looks like.”
This transition focuses on “character relationships and dynamics,” according to Clements. “It’s fun in season 3, how we have new alliances and new enemies. It’s been fun to follow the action of the scene as new people are assembled.”
Although Melanie is still missing or dead, her research proved fruitful when she found evidence that the world is actually warming up and may become repopulated faster than expected – it’s worth keeping in mind if time jumping comes into play.
For fans watching Snowpiercer for futuristic technology, Season 3 offers some interesting challenges as warming weather requires the train to operate differently. “It’s really a transition for the Snowpiercer and the pirate train, as well as what the world can be,” Clements told TV Line.
Sean Bean too spoke to the New York Times of his own hopes to Mr. Wilford, now that his greatest enemy has escaped the train. “Maybe we’ll get to see him in a more sensible light,” the actor said. “There are times when he has to negotiate with people, comply with some of their demands and try to be diplomatic. He’s in such a harsh situation, so he has to work with Layton. it’s never simple. It’s how cunning he is, how good he can narrow down. ”
Snowpiercer Season 3 Trailer: When Will It Be Released?
For season 2, TNT and Netflix shared the trailer two weeks before the season’s premiere. A a shorter tiger was also distributed in the New York Comic Con series the whole three months before the release of the new season.
We were expecting something similar for Snowpiercer Season 3 – maybe we’ll get our first review in late 2021.
How many seasons of Snowpiercer will there be?
So far, no official announcements have been made about the future of Snowpiercer after Season 3. So far, TNT has been really quick to revamp the show before the new season even falls, relying on its loyal viewers and the success of the show internationally on Netflix.
Producers are certainly planning more. Clements told the deadline that the team “definitely has Season 4 in mind, and we can go on and on. It’s just coming to the nets.” Given the major changes that a warming planet can bring to the show, we want to see how far writers can take this compelling sci-fi series.
