It is being reported that Snowpiercer has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes a week ahead the dystopian drama's sophomore premiere on January 25.

Season 1 of the series debuted last May with a second season renewal already in hand. It became the most-watched cable program of that month, making it TNT's best premiere in nearly two years.

Adapted from the film and graphic novel series of the same name, Snowpiercer takes place seven years after the world became a frozen wasteland. Now the only surviving remnants of humanity inhabit a perpetually-moving train of 1001 cars that circles the earth. Within this new society, class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival are all in play.
