Snowpeircer fans, mark your calendar and get ready for the next season of Snowpiercer. The great thing is that you don’t need to wait for a long time to do “Netflix and chill” (which seems pretty accurate for this series!) as Snowpiercer Season 2 is coming as early as January 2021! This sci-fi show is based upon Joon-ho’s 2013 film of the same name and the 1982 French graphic novel “Le Transperceneige” created by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where the earth is in its Second Ice age. The civilization is forced to live with the new “Normal” alongside facing various challenges. The show is a blend of Action, Drama, Sci-fi, and it’s also Thrilling. In fact, the show even made Netflix renew another season even before its first season premiered back in May 2020.
It was announced that season 2 is premiering on the 25th of January, the winter season. Could there be more of a great time to watch a show where people are on a train trying to survive freezing to death? This season will also be having only 10 episodes. Sadly, the only thing we could hope that this will increase in the next season ( keeping hopes high!).
Speaking of the plot, TNT’s official synopsis for Season 2 says like this: “In season two, an entirely new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing. This clearly points that Season two will be indeed interesting. The show will be evolving from where it stopped last time. Since there will be new characters at this time, we will be able to see their story.
Speaking of the cast members, Daveed Diggs (playing Andre Layton) and Jennifer Connolly (Melanie Cavill) are returning. Other stars like Annalise Basso, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, and Iddo Goldberg are also set to give life to their characters again. The characters played by Steven Ogg and Rowan Blanchard in season one will see their roles being more expanded this time. Their characters have already got regular status in the series.
Looking at the newcomers, Sakina Jaffrey and Damian Young have already joined in the second season’s cast as Mrs. and Mr. Headwood. Chelsea Harris will play the role of Sykes. At the same time, Tom Lipinski will play a new character, Kevin. Alongside that, it is expected that we will see several more new faces in the second season. As we mentioned, the Second season of Snowpiercer would be releasing on the 25th of January. Aren’t you excited to watch Snowpiercer Season 2? What are all your expectations from it?
