Snowpiercer’s fourth season has already been announced by TNT, the American network that airs the show. Season three was currently in development when the renewal was confirmed on July 29, 2021.
Graeme Manson and Aubrey Nealon have stepped down as executive producers following the conclusion of season three, and TNT has named Paul Zbyszewski (Agents of SHIELD, Helstrom) as the new showrunner.
Graeme and Aubrey Zbyszewski “have so brilliantly designed and built the captivating universe of Snowpiercer,” said Zbyszewski in an official release from TNT and Tomorrow Studios.
“We’re looking forward to a thrilling fourth season,” he said. With such a talented cast and team, I can’t wait to see what new worlds, secrets, and character relationships we can uncover as we continue to film.”
Is there anything we can expect from these new worlds? Here at Digital Spy, we’ll continue our adventure into the fourth season of Snowpiercer to find out what’s in store.
Snowpiercer Season 4 Cast
This season’s cast includes Jennifer Connelly, who plays Melanie Cavill, and Daveed Diggs, who portrays Andre Layton. Alexandra “Alex” Cavill, Iddo Goldberg, and Alison Wright will never be forgotten.
They include John “Oz” Osweiler actor Sam Otto; Josie Wellstead’s actress Katie McGuinness; Zarah Ferami’s actress Sheil v & Javi actor Roberto Urbina, all of whom could return in Season 4.
Three actors portray characters in the show: Mike O’Malley (Sam Roche), Chelsea Harris (Sykes), and Jaylin Fletcher (Miles). Season 3 ended with Sean Bean’s Mr. Wilford leaving Snowpiercer, so a return is unlikely.
The actors that portray Asha, Lilah “LJ” Folger Jr., and Kevin McMahon, respectively, are Archie Panjabi and Steven Ogg, together with Annalise Basso and Tom Lipinski. The latter will not return because they were killed off-screen in Season 3. Anything is possible, however, in a series like Snowpiercer.
There will be new characters in Season 4. Actors Michael Aronov and Clark Gregg are in this situation on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski, must also be mentioned.
Snowpiercer Season 4 Release Date
For the time being, we’ll have to rely on our best guesses as to when the new episodes will be aired.
It’s easy to anticipate fairly accurately based on the past two seasons’ publication schedules, which began in late January and continued with weekly installments until the end of March.
For the time being, our best estimate is that season 4 will begin streaming on Netflix in roughly the same time frame as season 3.
So, until we hear otherwise, we’ll pencil in late 9 January 2023 as the most likely time to begin work on the project.
Snowpiercer Season 4 Plot
Every time we think we know what’s going to happen next in Snowpiercer’s story, something unexpected happens.
As a result of the season three finale, the 1,029-car train was split between those who wanted to stay with Melanie and those who desired a new start in New Eden. There is now the option of choosing one’s own fate, which is a refreshing change from the usual doomsday scenario.
In the last episode, Melanie observes a missile launch from an unknown location on the horizon. Is it from Big Alice, who is supposed to be in New Eden now? Considering that Andre’s group should be a long way away by now, it seems unlikely.
Season 4 of Snowpiercer
If the missile was fired from a previously unknown location, there are more survivors. That Clark Gregg and Michael Aronov will be introducing their new characters in this way is a virtual certainty. We wouldn’t be surprised if Wilford was also a part of this plot.
It’s not clear what the missile is designed to accomplish. No, I don’t know what it is. Do you think this is a fresh attempt to heat the atmosphere? Paul Zbyszewski, the show’s new executive producer, said that season four would feature “new mysteries” for viewers to be concerned about.
