Snowpiercer season 4 release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

The Snowpiercer season 4 release date is clouded in uncertainly, or train engine fumes, but let's figure out the potential tracks.

What is the Snowpiercer season 4 release date? The TV show based on the dystopian movie has been barreling ahead, but the fourth and final season has hit some delays.

In Snowpiercer, all the essential elements from one of the best movies of Bong Joon-ho’s career are on show. But one of the best thriller series is swiftly approaching its final stop. So, here’s everything we know about season 4. Things are looking complicated, but here are the most likely scenarios.

What is the Snowpiercer season 4 release date?

Snowpiercer season 4 is very likely to be released in the first half of 2024 because it had finished filming by the start of 2023. But no official release date has been announced.

The reason for the lack of an announcement is that season 4 no longer has a home. TNT was originally responsible for bringing Snowpiercer to our screens, but the network is moving away from scripted programming and has confirmed that it won’t be releasing the final season.

In a statement [via Variety], the network said “We can confirm that TNT will not air season four of Snowpiercer.”

So, with the series having finished filming and being ready to go, who will distribute the show? Netflix seems like a possibility because it hosts seasons 1-3 for streaming. It might want to complete the deal by releasing season 4 exclusively, too.

But that’s just speculation, and until a deal is arranged, we won’t know the release date. Fingers crossed for some resolution soon.

Who’s in the Snowpiercer season 4 cast?

While no full list is confirmed, Snowpiercer season 4’s cast will feature regular leads, Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs.

Annalise Basso won’t return, however.

Expect to see the survivors of season 3 return to tie their stories up, with the exception of Basso’s LJ Folger who (spoiler ahead!) met an unsightly end in the previous installment. Two new cast members joined for the new episodes: Clark Gregg and Michael Aronov.

  • Jennifer Connelly as Melanie Cavill
  • Daveed Diggs as Andre Layton
  • Mickey Sumner as Bess Till
  • Alison Wright as Ruth Wardell
  • Lena Hall as Miss Audrey
  • Iddo Goldberg as Bennett Knox
  • Sam Otto as John “Oz” Osweiller
  • Sheila Vand as Zarah Fahrami
  • Mike O’Malley as Sam Roche
  • Clark Gregg as TBA
  • Michael Aronov as TBA

What is Snowpiercer season 4 about?

Snowpiercer season 4 will likely revolve around the extremely intimidating missile seen in the season 3 finale.

We don’t know who sent the missile, where it’s headed, or why it’s there, but we’re pretty sure we’re about to find out; and with this being the final season, it could have disastrous consequences. In short, prepare for some death.

In season 3, we also saw the train split into different groups with their own cars. Undoubtedly, season 4 will show us how these new paths work out for the groups led by Melanie, Andre, and Layton. There’ll be tension and conflict and plenty of drama in these new, competing dynamics, and that promises to be an engaging hook.

Is there a Snowpiercer season 4 trailer?

There isn’t a trailer for Snowpiercer season 4, but we expect one in 2024 once the distribution issues are resolved. 

The good news is that with filming having finished, as soon as the distribution of the series is sorted, a trailer should arrive pretty swiftly. In the meantime, check out the clip below if you want to revisit one of the best moments.

Where can I watch Snowpiercer season 4?

Netflix seems a likely option for season 4 now that TNT has dropped Snowpiercer, but there’s no official word on a new network or streaming service.

Netflix has international distribution rights for the first three seasons, making it the prime location for the fourth. However, things are still up in the air.

Another potential option is that, with TNT being owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, the final season could land on the company’s streaming service Max (previously known as HBO Max). We’re holding our breath for some good news coming soon though, to give us some certainty.

How many episodes are in Snowpiercer season 4?

It’s likely Snowpiercer season 4 has ten episodes, like the prior three seasons.

The episode count hasn’t been confirmed yet, but given the history of the series, we can be almost certain that season 4 will continue the trend. That means, when it’s all eventually over, there could be a grand total of 40 Snowpiercer episodes.

That’s all we know about the Snowpiercer season 4 release date for now. You may want to check out our guides to the Squid Game season 2 release date, everything we know about House of the Dragon season 2, or the Euphoria season 3 release date while you wait for the train to arrive.
