Because better late than never, the mediocre series Snowpiercer will eventually be canceled after the fourth season.
After the very successful science fiction film Snowpiercer: The Snowpiercer directed by Bong Joon-ho in 2013, screenwriters Josh Friedman and Graeme Manson and the TNT channel embarked on a new adaptation of the French comic The Transperceneige. The series thus follows the passengers of a moving train which shelters the last humans after the world has become a desert of ice which does not allow any form of life to survive.
The first season was quite entertaining, but already betrayed the shortcomings of the series, which only lost momentum and gaining inconsistency over the episodes, until the insane season 3 of Snowpiercer.
Daveed Diggs who asks himself as many questions as we do about the series
So we won’t cry after Deadline announced that the fourth batch of the post-apocalyptic drama, which is currently in production, will also be the last. several weeks ago, variety had already shared the rumor of an upcoming cancellation, which was therefore confirmed as indicated in the exaggeratedly complimentary press release from a spokesperson for the TNT network transcribed by Deadline :
“We can confirm that Snowpiercer will end after a successful multi-season run on TNT. […] The series was critically acclaimed, had a significant impact on the post-apocalyptic genre, and will remain in the hearts and minds of fans forever.”.
Terminus, everyone get off
Snowpiercer thus joins the list of mediocre series derived from successful films that ended up being canceled as Taken from NBC, Training Day and rush hour from CBS or The lethal Weapon from Fox. Currently, no release date for the final season of Snowpiercer has not been disclosed. This final batch will be headed by new showrunner Paul Zbyszewski, who succeeded executive producers Graeme Manson and Aubrey Nealon, and will mark the arrival of new characters camped by Clark Gregg and Michael Aronov.
In France, the series is still available on Netflix.
