TBS have revealed the official trailer for the long awaited television series adaptation of Snowpiercer.
The television series is set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland and the remnants of humanity inhabit a gigantic, perpetually moving train that circles the globe. The show will tackle issues such as class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival.
Behind the scenes, the Snowpiercer series has undergone a few changes, with Graeme Manson replacing Josh Friedman as showrunner back in February 2018 and Scott Derrick departing from directing the pilot too due to Mason’s “radically different vision” for the series.
Snowpiercer is based on the 2014 film of the same name, which was directed by Bong Joon-ho and starred Chris Evans, which itself was based off the French graphic Novel Le Transperceneige.
The Snowpiercer series has already been renewed for a second season and stars Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, Annalise Basso, Sasha Frolova, Alison Wright, Benjamin Haigh, Roberto Urbina, Katie McGuinness, Susan Park, Sam Otto, Sheila Vand, Lena Hall, Iddo Goldberg, Jaylin Fletcher, Steve Ogg, Timothy V. Murphy, Happy Anderson, Jonathan Lloyd Walker, Aleks Paunovic, Shaun Toub, Kerry O’Malley, Aaron Glenane, Fiona Vroom and Rowan Blanchard.
Snowpiercer will premiere on TBS in Spring 2020.
