Snowpiercer Season 2: Premiere date, trailer shared at NYCC 2020

There’s no doubt we’re looking forward to Snowpiercer Season 2. NYCC 2020 may have been different, but it brought us exciting news.

NYCC 2020 has been very different to normal. Everything has gone online. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some great news about shows such as Snowpiercer Season 2.

During the NYCC Metaverse panel, the cast and showrunner of the series shared some exciting information. Showrunner Graeme Manson was able to tell us the Snowpiercer Season 2 release date, while the show’s stars, Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Sean Bean, and Rowan Blanchard discussed what to expect from their characters.

Snowpiercer Season 2 is coming in January 2021

It only seems fitting that a show such as Snowpiercer would get a winter premiere date, doesn’t it? We’ll be surrounded by the snow outside, and we’ll continue a story that involves a deep freeze at the same time.

There isn’t much longer to wait for the second season to premiere, especially since it wasn’t affected by coronavirus shutdowns. It will premiere on Monday, Jan. 25, 2021 at 9/8c on TNT. Each episode will be released weekly as with the first season.

Trailer for the second season

As well as sharing the date, the cast was able to discuss what to expect. Of course, these are just teases, sharing where the characters are at this point in the story and a little of what’s to come in the new season.

The power had shifted from Melanie to Layton at the end of the first season, but it’s not going to stay that way for too long. Mr. Wilford is boarding the train he was kicked off of before the series began. It’s time to see what he did to survive, how he got to Melanie’s daughter, and what he wants to gain now.

We’ll also get to see the characters learn more about themselves. Does Layton have what it takes to lead? He’ll need to get rid of the idealist side to him and become much more pragmatic. Meanwhile, Melanie gets the chance to follow the science and focus on the engine rather than the survival of people.

And we have something coming up that puts Melanie and her daughter, Alexandra, in the same room together. What stories has Alexandra heard and what does she think of her mom?

Take a look at the trailer for Snowpiercer Season 2 to get an idea of what to expect.

And for those who want to see the 30-minute panel, we’re including it below. It’s packed with a lot of topics, including how the show fits the world surrounding us today and why Sean Bean is so excited to play a role like Mr. Wilford.

It’s definitely something worth watching.
