AMC announced today that it has acquired the rights to Snowpiercer, allowing the long awaited fourth season of the dystopian drama to finally air. The news comes a year after the series was cancelled by TNT despite filming on Season 4 already being complete.

It only seemed a matter of time before the show landed at a new network. At the time of its cancellation, production company Tomorrow Studios stated it was already trying to find a new home for the fourth season, which will reportedly mark the end of the series' story.

"Snowpiercer is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride with a loyal fanbase – similar to the passionate fandoms we serve across our biggest franchise series – and a welcome addition to AMC and AMC+," said Ben Davis, executive vice president of original programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios. "We look forward to giving viewers an opportunity to binge the first three seasons later this year, in anticipation of the arrival of a remarkable fourth season helmed by Paul Zbyszewski and this stellar cast, which will premiere in 2025."

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.
