The dystopian drama will conclude its story in 2023.
June 17, 2022
It is being reported that Snowpiercer will be ending its run on TNT after its upcoming fourth season. The news comes nearly a year after the dystopian drama was picked up for its now-final season, though a premiere date for its return has yet to be set.
The show debuted in May 2020 and became the most-watched cable program of that month. A solid freshman run was followed up with more success in Season 2, where it ranked as a Top 5 drama on cable TV with 21 million viewers across linear and digital platforms. Season 3 aired earlier this year, concluding in March after seeing series low ratings.
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.
Look for Season 4 of Snowpiercer in early 2023.

Z , Aethn : You confuse "source materials" with "franchise". The graphic novels are the source material. The movie was an adaptation of this source material, and the series is another adaptation of the source material, and is in no way a spin-off of the movie....Like, come on!

Time for this show to end. Season 3 was barely watchable, and they're slowly killing off the characters. That's the problem with a show of this type; because it's a tiny microcosm of the world with no chance of gaining outside resources, this world can only evolve in one direction — self-destruction. I've watched as each season the passengers tear their lifeboat apart in ways that appear ever more stupid. Is this supposed to be a parable for the world today? Sure, but who needs the reminder?
We were left with hope at the end of season 3, but it was almost as if the ending was tacked on at the last moment.

but the thing we must pnder, a perpetual motion machone, real or fanatsized, could not support all the slow downs, gears up, drop offs, picks ups, catch you around the bend... even tho we did dicey tracks last season as par for course.
you had a good idea. you ran it too long. should have rapped up on season three.

Elbae -- This series is literally a spinoff of a great movie, based on an even better book. As "Z" said there is also a Graphic Novel series [comic book] and a followup book coming out next year.

Elbae - there's a movie and a comic book series that I know of, I'd consider that a franchise.

I enjoyed the film and both season one and two were great , three was good imo too. But there is only so much they could do storywise, so ending it at season four makes sense. And so few sci fi shows last beyond one season this had a good run.

Season 1 and 2 were good, but season 1 was better than season 2. Season 3 was like they got into a rut and did the whole human politics drama thing with the train as just a set-up. I still think its great that they are getting a season 4 to properly end the story. I will watch it. I think things might have been different if the lead actress didn't take a break for a whole season and a half (to do Top Gun Maverick).

@Aethn Never knew this was a franchise....do you know of any sequels, spin-offs, etc. that the rest of the world doesn't?
