SEASON 2 TRAILERS:
In Season 2, a new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing. While Layton battles Wilford for the soul of Snowpiercer, Melanie leads the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity.
Snowpiercer is based on both the 2013 South Korean–Czech film of the same name, directed by Bong Joon-ho, and the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, from which the film was adapted, by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette.
The dystopian drama follows the survivors of a cataclysmic weather event who are rigidly separated into classes on a 1,001-car, high-speed train that endlessly circles a frozen world.
The political environment and the questions that are being raised in the show, reflect questions we are asking ourselves now in terms of how we run a just society, how democracy works, where it doesn’t work, themes of social justice and injustice. A lot of those things in the current milieu are reflected in the show.
Snowpiercer Season 2 is set to start on Monday, January 25 in the U.S., with the first episode “The Time of Two Engines“.
Episodes are then set to air weekly – Season 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT on TNT and Tuesdays on Netflix.
