The third season of Snowpiercer is about to premiere soon and viewers have been excited to find out what's next on the post-apocalyptic series after the cliffhanger ending of the second season. Now, we have our first look footage as TNT has finally released the official trailer for the third season.
The one-minute trailer gave us a look at the much-anticipated third season as it picks up after the events of the second season finale where Layton and his inner circle command a small 10-car "pirate train" in search of Melanie and a possible warm location called New Eden to restart civilization. Meanwhile, back in Snowpiercer, Mr. Wilford is consolidating power as he is waiting for Layton's return. The trailer also gave us our first look at a mysterious new character named Asha, who claims to be from New Eden. You can watch it here:
Based on what we saw in the trailer, it looks like the third season will be another action-packed chapter for the series. It also seems that the characters are getting closer to finding a solution to Earth's climate problem with the discovery of a warm area named New Eden, which could be the hope that they've been waiting for for the future of humanity. However, despite the promising development, it looks like Mr. Wilford's menacing leadership aboard the train will still remain as the main conflict of the series as it heads to the third season.
Returning cast members for the third season include 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, and Steven Ogg. Chelsea Harris has been promoted to series regular after a recurring role on the second season while Archie Panjabi joins the season as new character Asha.
The third season of Snowpiercer premieres on Monday, January 24 at 9pm ET on TNT.
