In a seemingly never-ending journey of the train that never stops running, the remains of humanity hang onto life as they board the Snowpiercer, a Noah’s Ark for the last remaining humans on an ice frozen Earth.
For the last 7 years, the Earth was left in an arctic tundra after an experiment gone wrong, or more accurately, it was an experiment too perfect that the Earth went back to the Ice Age freezing the planet to its core in their attempt to cool the world after the global warming.
In 1001 train cars, the last of mankind circles the globe non-stop at high-speed to use kinetic energy to power the train and provide power and heat throughout the carriages. The train was supposedly only for those who can afford it but when it became time to board, chaos ensued and those who cannot pay for their survival forced themselves into the train.
Those who cannot afford to secure a slot on the train but managed to get in were pushed at the back coaches and were not given the same treatment as those who paid for it. After years of just trying to survive, a revolt ensues with the vision of giving everyone on board the democracy in a battle of social justice.
As new revelations come out of the horizon, new adversities rise as well as the second season of Snowpiercer takes on a whole new world.
The following episodes also have their working titles released as follows: Keep Hope Alive for Episode 5, Many Miles from Snowpiercer for Episode 6, Our Answer for Everything for Episode 7, The Eternal Engineer for Episode 8, The Show Must Go On for Episode 9, and Into the White for Episode 10.

The fifth episode of Snowpiercer Season 2 is entitled Keep Hope Alive where the differences between the plans of Layton and Wilford continue as both would try and follow their lead. Wilford invites Audrey over as his guest on Big Alice as he plans his next move by sticking to his own plan.

As for Netflix, the Netflix release of Snowpiercer happens in one bulk which means that for Season 2 of Snowpiercer, Netflix would have to wait for the whole season to finish its release on TNT. Netflix has yet to confirm or release the official release date of Snowpiercer on their streaming platform.
Given that, the release date of Snowpiercer Season 2 on Netflix would be more or less March 20, 2021. The time of release is also unofficial but given that Netflix usually releases new episodes on or before 8 AM, it is expected to drop the whole second season of Snowpiercer at the same time.
For people outside of the US, Netflix releases every new episode of Snowpiercer Season 2 weekly depending on the location where the series is offered.
The fifth episode of Snowpiercer Season 2, Keep Hope Alive, is slated for release on February 22, 2021, at 9 PM EST via TNT. For those living in UK and Ireland, Snowpiercer Season 2 Episode 5 will be available the following day at 8 AM GMT.
As of the time of writing, there are six days left to wait for the new episode of Snowpiercer to arrive. Tune in as the story continues to unfold where the Earth seems to start healing and heating up again and the residents of Snowpiercer figure out how to reclaim the Earth from the ice encapsulating it.
