After the way Snowpiercer Season 2 ended, there’s no doubt you need more of the story. Will Snowpiercer Season 3 happen at TNT?

We’ll just get the good news out of the way. Snowpiercer Season 3 is officially happening, and it was confirmed ahead of the Season 2 premiere. This was great news going into the season not having to worry about the cliffhanger.

There are plenty of questions about the third season, including whether a couple of characters will return. At least we know we will get answers to those questions eventually.

When will Snowpiercer Season 3 happen?

Of course, now the question is when we’ll even get the season. Will it arrive sometime in 2021?

A 2021 release date is highly unlikely. The writing could have started before the official renewal, but it wouldn’t have been done in full. There would have likely simply been a partial plan for the season. The pre-production, production, and post-production processes now need to happen.

It took a long time to develop the first season, especially with the network changes, but the difficult parts have been done now. We’ll likely see Snowpiercer Season 3 arrive sometime between January and July 2022. We’re hoping for as early as possible!

What will the third season cover? We’re looking at the 10-car pirate train joining back with the rest of Snowpiercer and Big Alice. That will then reunite a few friends and enemies. Wilford will certainly want to make some sort of example, and that leaves us fearing for both Zarah and Ruth.
