It is being reported by Deadline that TNT has opted not to air Snowpiercer's fourth and final season. The news comes seven months after word leaked that Season 4 would mark the end of the series and a year-and-a-half after it was last renewed.

The news does not come as a complete shock, as the dystopian drama was the last remaining original scripted series airing on the cable network. While the show's fourth season has already completed filming, TNT's decision is reportedly linked to tax write-offs at Warner Bros. Discovery. For its part, production company Tomorrow Studios is trying to find a new home for the fourth season as well as a potential prequel and sequel.

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.
