After a strong first season on cable network TNT, ‘Snowpiercer’ is set to return for a second season in early 2021.  The announcement of the second season premiere date – along with a confirmation of a third season already in the works – was made at the virtual New York Comic-Con earlier this month, but was no surprise, with the second season confirmed before the first season even aired a single episode.  Now, the home-video release of the first season has a confirmed release date as well: January 26, 2021, the day after the second-season premiere.
