“Snowpiercer” is all set for a second season and it will not be the least. The dystopian sci-fi series has been renewed for a third season, great news ahead of its scheduled premiere on Jan. 25. It is the only remaining original series left on TNT after “Animal Kingdom” and “Claws” wrapped up their respective final seasons.

Variety first reported the renewal for a third season by “Snowpiercer,” a series that ranked as the most-watched new cable program in May. However, like most shows, the series was not spared from the issues raised by the coronavirus. Production for season 2 had to be paused in March but much of the season 2 episodes had already been completed before that.

“Snowpiercer” is expected to address hanging plots and most are eager to see what lies ahead for former detective Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) and billionaire inventor Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean). In the official trailer released last October, both were seen facing off. For those who missed that, the video can be seen below.

In the season 1 finale of “Snowpiercer,” most will recall how Mr. Wilford mysteriously ended up still alive. He took over Snowpiercer with his new train.

Also, Melanie Cavill’s (Jennifer Connely) daughter Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard) is still alive. It was believed she had died at The Big Freeze. However, it appears she will be returning and is working with Mr. Wilford. The trailer provided a glimpse of a reunion between Melanie and Alexandra. However, it remains to be seen if this will be a happy and peaceful reunion when the second season unwraps.

Overall, expect season 2 of “Snowpiercer” to be a power struggle between Mr. Wilford and Layton. It should be an interesting new season for viewers who can expect better things ahead – including more twists to set up a third season afterward.
