“Snowpiercer” saved by AMC, fourth and final season will debut in 2025

The post-apocalyptic train will be leaving the station one more time.

Snowpiercer is no longer frozen in time.

More than a year after the post-apocalyptic drama was scrapped at TNT without ever airing its completed fourth and final season, the show has been rescued by AMC Networks. Season 4 will now hit AMC and AMC+ next year, and the first three seasons will be available to stream later this year.

"Snowpiercer is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride with a loyal fanbase — similar to the passionate fandoms we serve across our biggest franchise series — and a welcome addition to AMC and AMC+," said Ben Davis, executive VP of original programming at AMC Networks and AMC Studios, in an announcement Thursday. "We look forward to giving viewers an opportunity to binge the first three seasons later this year, in anticipation of the arrival of a remarkable fourth season helmed by Paul Zbyszewski and this stellar cast, which will premiere in 2025."

Showrunner Paul Zbyszewski added, "We're so thrilled the train has finally found a home, and we're incredibly grateful to everyone at AMC and Tomorrow Studios for giving the fans of Snowpiercer a chance to enjoy season four with all the hard work this amazing cast and crew put into it."

The series originally aired on TNT, but after WarnerMedia and Discovery Inc. merged into Warner Bros. Discovery, the network — and its sister channels TBS and TruTV — pivoted away from scripted television. Following Snowpiercer's cancellation, producer Tomorrow Studios expressed a desire to find a new home for the series and ultimately build out a franchise, including a prequel and sequel.

Based on Bong Joon Ho's 2013 film of the same name, which was itself based on a graphic novel, Snowpiercer follows what remains of humanity in post-apocalyptic 2026, after the Earth has frozen into an icy landscape. The last survivors live on a giant train circling the globe, their only shelter from the cold, and struggle to maintain a delicate balance onboard on their endless journey. The cast includes Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Rowan Blanchard, and Roberto Urbina, with season 4 adding Clark Gregg and Michael Aronov.
