Based on the “Snowpiercer” graphic novel series by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette, and the eponymous film from Oscar® winner Bong Joon Ho (Parasite), the critically-acclaimed television series Snowpiercer is set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland. Class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival play out in the story, which centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a perpetually-moving train with 1001 cars that circles the globe.

Snowpiercer stars Oscar® winner Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind), GRAMMY® and Tony® Award-winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton),  BAFTA winner Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Rowan Blanchard (Girl Meets World), Emmy® nominee Alison Wright (The Americans), Mickey Sumner (Frances Ha), Iddo Goldberg (Peaky Blinders), Katie McGuinness (Lucky Man), Tony® Award-winner and GRAMMY® nominee Lena Hall (Evil), Sam Otto (The State), Chelsea Harris (The Neighborhood), Mike O’Malley (Heels), Roberto Urbina (Narcos), and Sheila Vand (Undone).

Previously announced new cast members for Season 4 include Clark Gregg (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Avengers, Thor) and Tony® Award winner Michael Aronov (The Drop, The Americans, Operation Finale).

Said Ben Davis, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios:

Snowpiercer is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride with a loyal fanbase – similar to the passionate fandoms we serve across our biggest franchise series – and a welcome addition to AMC and AMC+. We look forward to giving viewers an opportunity to binge the first three seasons later this year, in anticipation of the arrival of a remarkable fourth season helmed by Paul Zbyszewski and this stellar cast, which will premiere in 2025.”

Added showrunner Paul Zbyszewski:

“We’re so thrilled the train has finally found a home, and we’re incredibly grateful to everyone at AMC and Tomorrow Studios for giving the fans of Snowpiercer a chance to enjoy season four with all the hard work this amazing cast and crew put into it.”

And Tomorrow Studios’ Founder/CEO Marty Adelstein, President/Partner Becky Clements, and EVP Alissa Bachner, commented:

“We love Snowpiercer and AMC is the perfect partner to share its final season, which completes an incredible series filled with brilliant talent that entertains viewers while exploring important global issues.”

The action-packed finale of Season 3 left a split of the train — with Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) leading the Eternal Engine and those passengers who chose to stay aboard Snowpiercer for relative safety, and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) leading the others, who chose to adventure to the unknown, outside world of New Eden, on Big Alice.

Snowpiercer: Season 4 is executive produced by Zbyszewski (Lost, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Helstrom), Christoph Schrewe, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, and Alissa Bachner through Tomorrow Studios; Matthew O’Connor, Ben Rosenblatt and Scott Derrickson; and the original film’s producers, including Bong Joon Ho, Miky Lee, Jinnie Choi, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun, and Dooho Choi. The series is produced by Tomorrow Studios along with CJ Entertainment. ITV Studios distributes Snowpiercer internationally and brokered this acquisition.

The first three seasons of Snowpiercer will stream on AMC+ later this year, leading up to the premiere of the fourth and final season on AMC and AMC+ in early 2025.
