Way back in 2018 we announced that Netflix had acquired the global rights (outside of USA and China) for an upcoming futuristic action thriller “Snowpiercer” based on the 2013 movie of the same name by “Okja”-creator Bong Joon-Ho. The series is finally ready for airing and will premier on TNT in the USA on May 17th and the rest of the world will get weekly episodes on Netflix starting from May 25th.
Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly (“Alita: Battle Angel”, “A Beautiful Mind”) and Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs (“Black-ish”, “Velvet Buzzsaw”) star in the series which is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland. The show 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 are questioned in this riveting television adaptation.
