The television version of ‘Snowpiercer’ has been in development for quite some time now but the new trailer is ready to roll into your living room or mobile device thanks to a San Diego Comic-Con 2019 release! The show stars “Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly and Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs star in the futuristic thriller coming Spring 2020 to TBS.” The concept for the series was originally brought to life in the French graphic novel ‘Le Transperceneige’ by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette. It would later be brought to life by Korean director Bong Joon-ho as a feature film.
According to TBS, here is what this iteration of ‘Snowpiercer’ will be about:
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation.

I wasn’t sure what to think about this version of ‘Snowpiercer’ but now have to say that I love how it looks. The show in pre-development had to swap out both the showrunner and director of the pilot, but it seems like everything was pulled together with the revamp. The long delay appears to have paid off in the end as at least the trailer makes this looks like we’re in for a treat.
TBS agrees as they’ve already picked up the show for a second season! TBS General Manager Brett Weitz has previously shared that “Snowpiercer is the perfect show to kick-off TBS’ entry into dramas with intricate storytelling, stunning visuals, and first-class acting. We believe in the longevity of this series and that audiences will be amazed by the fantastical world that brings to life such relevant social, political, and environmental issues.”
