The network will not air the drama's final season.
January 13, 2023
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.

the end of season three was a ptential ender.
I mean seriously. 5000 minus murders people left on a train. With sean beans "give me my ring!" train on it's twat.
a wide open space.
land for... wait for it it wait for it... no everyone can disembark. there are limited resources. o.k. a new raffle lotterry.
f thath shiz. everyone jumps trains and settles in the mountains nearby!
well the fourth season would have been nice, but probably apocayptic clap trap.

i don't want to be a putz, but i really enjoyed the end of season three and i thought they could close it there.
a viable landmass. sure it could only support 1000 of the 5000 in the train, but forgoe science a moment, again.
the shiowrunners could have closed it there. i do hope whoever picks up season four tacks on those two in hazmat suits on a push cart.
that was classic funny

Zaslav strikes again. A completed final season ready to air and he pulls this dirty trick. Let’s hope Netflix can give us a chance to see the ending to this series.

Jen, as a fan I'm not sure how you can be satisfied with the end of Season 3 knowing they have already filmed an entire new season. I don't know how the network leaving a completed season unaired is not surprising. They officially renewed it in 2021 and we've been waiting to see what happens.
Besides, I would bet that we will see that season at some point on a streaming service. Netflix already carries the show internationally.

Not surprised- the end of the last season wrapped it up enough to be ambiguous and satisfying. I would have liked it to go on, but where it left off is fine.

I liked this show and the movie it came from.. hopefully season four will be shown somewhere.

They should have ended it with season 2 while there was still a storyline as the Sean Bean show it morphed into did nothing but circle the bowl for the whole of season three.
Fortunately someone at TNT flushed, who do we thank for saving us?

Well, another unique show bites the dust. I cant believe that this is the reward we viewers get for faithfully following a show for 3 seasons: no ending so WB/Discovery can use the all-ready filmed 4th. season as a tax write-off. I was pissed when they did it with the Batgirl movie, but at least no one had several years invested in watching the first 3/4 of it, only to have them pull the final half-hour. What a slap in the face to the viewers!

Broadcast TV is pretty much dead except for reality competitions.
Even the walking dead moved over to AMC+ for first airings, leaving cable for seconds.
I expect this to show up on a streaming platform soon enough.
Sadly TNT has an amazing library of scripted series and movies and no real place to put them if WB-D are not gonna put them on MAX.

Can't say I'm upset. Yes, it's dismaying that HBO/Discovery is dumping a lot of content because AT&T made a bunch of bad decisions and passed on a lot of debt to its spinoffs, but the series was on its last legs anyway.
Every season they kept destroying more of the train, their lifeboat. If the series had gone on, my guess is that it would have ended up with Daveed Diggs and Jennifer Connelly in environmental suits pumping a handcar.
But I'm sure the last season will show up somewhere.
