It’s still a year out from its series premiere, but TBS and WarnerMedia have renewed the upcoming small screen adaptation of the post-apocalyptic sci-fi Snowpiercer.
Based on the acclaimed movie of the same name, Snowpiercer is set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe, where class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out.
Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind) and Daveed Diggs (Blindspotting) lead a cast that also includes Alison Wright (The Americans), Mickey Sumner (Frances Ha), Susan Park (Ghostbusters), Iddo Goldberg (Peaky Blinders), Katie McGuinness (Dirty Filthy Love), Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), Annalise Basso (Bedtime Stories), Sam Otto (Jellyfish), Roberto Urbina (Narcos), Sheila Vand (Argo), Jaylin Fletcher (Saturday Church) and Rowan Blanchard (Girl Meets World).
“Snowpiercer is the perfect show to kick-off TBS’ entry into dramas with intricate storytelling, stunning visuals and first-class acting,” said Brett Weitz, general manager for TBS and TNT. “We believe in the longevity of this series and that audiences will be amazed by the fantastical world that brings to life such relevant social, political and environmental issues.”
Season one of Snowpiercer is set to premiere in Spring 2020.
