Snowpiercer has been a consistent hit throughout its first three seasons. As the recent chapter concludes its run, fortunately, we don't need to wait for any news regarding its future as the series has already been renewed for a fourth season. Now, it looks like the next chapter of the post-apocalyptic series will get bigger as it recruits one of the stars of a beloved movie franchise.
TNT has announced that the fourth season of Snowpiercer has begun its production. In addition, Agents of SHIELD star Clark Gregg and The Americans star Michael Aronov are joining the season in undisclosed roles. Lost writer Paul Zbyszewski has been tapped to serve as its new showrunner.
"We have been blessed with an abundance of riches in building the world of Snowpiercer – from the incredible cast and crew, to the loyal fanbase and the building blocks afforded from the film and graphic novel. Tonight’s finale is the culmination of several storylines, with unexpected twists and turns around every corner, and leading to an exciting fourth season with Paul’s vision and creative storytelling continuing the incredible show momentum," executive producers Graeme Mason and Aubrey Nealson said in a statement.
Gregg is known for his iconic role of Phil Coulson in the MCU films and the series Agents of SHIELD which concluded a few years ago. He is definitely a great addition to the cast and it is interesting to see what kind of role he will play in the series since it is set in a post-apocalyptic world which narrows down the type of character he'll portray. All we can bet is that he will be playing a major role in the season similar to Asha, the new character that was introduced in the recent season.
The third season cast includes Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Sean Bean, Rowan Blanchard, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, Mike O'Malley, Steven Off, Chelsea Harris, and Archie Panjabi.
The third season finale of Snowpiercer recently aired on TNT. You can catch up on the first two seasons which are streaming on HBO Max.
