Snowpiercer Season 3

On Wednesday, TNT has announced that Snowpiercer Season 3 is set to premiere on Monday, January 24, 2022. Season 3 will be released just a year after the second season, picking up right where it left off. Snowpiercer Season 1 focused on a revolt on the train led by Layton (played by Daveed Diggs), and the second season focused on his conflict with the creator of the perpetual train, Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean). Season 3 is expected to begin with Layton commanding a "pirate train" in a mission to find Melanie and a potential new place where the survivors could live safely.
