Fans and critics alike love the dystopian sci-fi series Snowpiercer, which is based on the same-named 2013 movie. The series centres on the class- and power-segregated survivors of a frozen apocalypse who travel the world aboard a gigantic train.
The show’s first three seasons have been full of surprises and cliffhangers that have left fans clamouring for more. What can we anticipate from Snowpiercer season 4 and when will it premiere? Here are some queries that viewers of Snowpiercer are hoping will be addressed in the show’s final season.
When Will Snowpiercer Season 4 Be Released?
The bad news is that a release date for Snowpiercer season 4 has not yet been established. The season has already been filmed and is available for broadcast, which is wonderful news. The issue is that the fourth season of the show won’t be broadcast by TNT, the network that has been airing it in the US.
TNT said in a statement that while making this choice was challenging, they are now working with the producers to find the program a new home where viewers can continue to enjoy it. Although the reasoning for TNT’s decision is unclear, some believe it has something to do with the show’s declining ratings.
Season 3 of Snowpiercer averaged 0.51 million viewers and a 0.11 rating in the 18-49 age group, according to TV Series Finale. This was down from season 2 by 44% and 40%, respectively. These figures, however, do not account for Netflix users who watch the program globally.
If Snowpiercer season 4 finds a new network or streaming service soon, it might follow the pattern of earlier seasons and debut in the first few months of 2024. However, nothing is certain at this time; this is simply a guess.

Who Will Be in Snowpiercer Season 4?
Most of the main cast members are expected to return for Snowpiercer season 4, including Jennifer Connelly as Melanie Cavill, Daveed Diggs as Andre Layton, Alison Wright as Ruth Wardell, Rowan Blanchard as Alexandra Cavill, Iddo Goldberg as Bennett Knox, Lena Hall as Miss Audrey, Mickey Sumner as Bess Till, Sam Otto as John Osweiler, Sheila Vand as Zarah Ferami, and Mike O’Malley as Roche.
There are also two new additions to the cast for season 4: Clark Gregg and Michael Aronov. Gregg is best known for his role as Phil Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while Aronov won a Tony Award for his performance in Oslo. Their roles in Snowpiercer have not been revealed yet, but they are likely to play important characters in the final season.

What Will Happen in Snowpiercer Season 4?
Snowpiercer season 3 ended with a shocking twist: Melanie Cavill was alive after all. She had survived her solo mission to find signs of life outside the train and had been living in a research station for months.
However, she was unable to contact Snowpiercer or Big Alice due to a jamming device that was installed by Mr Wilford (Sean Bean), who had taken over both trains and was ruling them with an iron fist.
Melanie managed to send a message to her daughter Alex and Layton through a weather balloon, telling them that she had found a habitable location in Argentina where they could start a new life.
She also warned them that Wilford was planning to destroy Snowpiercer by crashing it into an ice wall. Alex and Layton decided to stage a rebellion against Wilford and rescue Melanie before it was too late.
Snowpiercer season 4 will pick up from this cliffhanger and reveal the fate of Melanie, Snowpiercer, and its passengers. Will Alex and Layton succeed in their mission? Will Wilford be defeated or escape? Will Melanie reunite with her daughter and her former allies? Will anyone make it to Argentina and start over? These are some of the questions that fans hope will be answered in the final season.
Is There a Trailer for Snowpiercer Season 4?
There is no official trailer for Snowpiercer season 4 yet, but there is a short teaser that was released in July 2021 along with the announcement of the renewal. The teaser shows some behind-the-scenes footage of the cast and crew filming the season in Vancouver, Canada.
It also features some interviews with Connelly, Diggs, Wright, Blanchard, Goldberg, Hall, Sumner, Otto, Vand, O’Malley, Gregg, Aronov, Bean, and showrunner Graeme Manson.
The teaser does not reveal much about the plot of season 4, but it does hint at some of the themes and challenges that the characters will face. Manson says that season 4 is about “the end of the line” and “the end of the world”. Connelly says that the season is about “survival” and “sacrifice”.
Diggs says that the season is about “hope” and “family”. Wright says that the season is about “loyalty” and “betrayal”. Blanchard says that the season is about “love” and “loss”.
The teaser also shows some glimpses of the action, drama, and emotion that fans can expect from season 4. There are scenes of explosions, fights, chases, tears, hugs, kisses, and more. The teaser ends with a voiceover from Connelly saying, “This is our last chance to save what’s left of humanity”.
