The snowpiercer has returned. The third and final season of the acclaimed post-apocalyptic series finally arrives on Netflix this July, ten years after the show’s first installment premiered in South Korea. Snowpiercer was adapted from a French graphic novel by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette. It is based on an idea for a train that creates its own endless loop track to provide transportation around the globe after an ice age wipes out almost all life on earth.
Kang (played by actor Eugene Lee) is the new leader of the tail section, who has allied himself with Namgoong Minsu in order to save humanity. The two men have set out to change history and fight for their rightful place on top – taking control from Wilford’s front car, all while battling a chilling winter that is on the horizon.
Snowpiercer is an original series created by Korean director Bong Joon Ho, who also directed The Host. It was adapted from a French graphic novel of the same name and premiered in South Korea on July 20, 2013. In 2014 it became available internationally via streaming services Netflix and Hulu (for American audiences).
Overview of Snowpiercer
“Snowpiercer” is an English language science fiction thriller TV series based on a French graphic novel of the same name by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette, which was adapted for television. It premiered in South Korea on July 20th, 2013, before becoming internationally available via streaming services Netflix and Hulu (for American audiences).
Plot of Snowpiercer
Set in a post-apocalyptic, frozen world where the entire Earth is encased in ice and snow from pole to pole, “Snowpiercer” tells the story of a global class system set into motion by an experiment designed to end all wars. The series begins when one part of this experiment goes horribly wrong, and the train-like Snowpiercer becomes a new world. The series is set 17 years after this cataclysmic event when the elites are on top of the hierarchy in what’s left of society living aboard the Snowpiercer while those at the bottom struggle to survive.
The filming location for “Snow piercer” is in Paris and Budapest, Hungary.
The first season of “Snowpiercer” follows the survivors who are aboard the train for so many years after they lost contact with Earth’s surface due to a sudden snowstorm that blankets all poles from Shanghai to New York City. They are fighting to survive in a post-apocalyptic world and despite the intense, often gruesome conditions on board the train.
“Snowpiercer” Season two follows the survivors of humanity who are aboard a train called “the snow piercer” for 17 years after they lost contact with Earth’s surface due to a sudden blizzard that blankets all poles from Shanghai to New York City. They fight to survive in what remains of society, living onboard.
What will happen next?
The second season ended on a cliffhanger where the audience was left biting their nails. Following the second season, we expect the third season to answer all the unanswered questions and deliver a satisfying conclusion. Season three will follow last year’s epic finale with more of what we love about this show: the fight for survival.
What can we expect from Season three?
We know that, following last year’s season finale, humankind will have to face winter head-on in order to live and survive another day. They must find a way out of their current situation before it consumes them completely. The third season is expected to be a mix of the first two seasons, with an increased focus on character drama and more complex themes.
In addition, we can expect strong female leads in their fight for survival; this is what sets Snowpiercer apart from other dystopian dramas such as The Handmaid’s Tale or 1984. These ladies are not afraid to take charge, and they have what it takes to conquer the winter season.
Lastly, there will be a new character introduced in Season three: Bong Joon Ho’s daughter Yeun Woo Jin is set to play Yona Kwon – an environmental activist with radical ideas on how society should live.
Cast for the Next Season
The cast for Season three is yet to be released, but we do know that the show will have Tilda Swinton (as Mason), Jennifer Connelly (as Melanie Cavill), and Daveed Diggs (as Desmond). We also can expect a few returning faces, such as Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, and Ewen Bremner.
Considering the big changes in our environment to the show, we are keen to know what the writers bring in the near future.
