TNT has officially renewed Snowpiercer Season 3 without an episode of Season 2 airing. Check out all we know so far.

It is official. Snowpiercer Season 3 is happening. TNT confirmed the renewal before one episode of Season 2 has aired.

It shows great support in the dystopian-future series. This is also great news for fans who would like to keep the breaks between seasons as short as possible. A renewal ahead of the Season 2 premiere means work can start right away, and we know it needs to with pandemic filming protocols currently in place.

More great news is that it doesn’t matter if there’s a cliffhanger at the end of Snowpiercer Season 2. We’ll get a resolution to it.

The Snowpiercer Season 3 renewal shouldn’t be all that surprising

To be honest, the renewal isn’t all that surprising. The series premiere drew in 3.3 million viewers on TNT and TBS, marking the most-watched cable premiere in May 2020.

On top of that, the series is the #1 drama on cable networks. It makes sense to keep the series going with strong numbers.

And those numbers come despite the delays to Season 1. At one point we had to even wonder if Snowpiercer would even happen!

What to expect on Snowpiercer Season 2

The third season renewal comes ahead of the second season. That means we can’t really look at what to expect on Snowpiercer Season 3. Instead, we need to look at what to expect on the second season, which premieres on Monday, Jan. 25 on TNT and airs the following day on Netflix internationally.

Check out the trailer for the season first:

Snowpiercer Season 2 will pick up off the back of the Season 1 finale. Big Alice caught up to the train and disabled the systems. Who is on Big Alice? Only Mr. Wilford and Melanie’s daughter Alexandra. There may be others but they’re not as important as these two characters.

Layton and the other Tailies only just got control of the train, and they’re not in an agreement of how things should run now. However, Melanie did agree to remain in Engineering away from everyone else and the class system has been taken down.

Will things change for the worst for the Tailies again? That’s highly likely considering his preference to live in luxury. It will make for some interesting storylines on the second season.
