In another money-saving move from Warner Bros. Discovery, the final season of the post-apocalyptic drama has been cut from its mother network, and is being shopped to other outlets.
Another “interesting” money-saving decision from Warner Bros. Discovery has been revealed. Season 4 of the popular Snowpiercer series will no longer air on TNT, despite a previous greenlight. The final season of the series will now be shopped to other outlets for a proper sendoff.
“We can confirm that TNT will not air season four of Snowpiercer,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “This was a difficult decision, but our admiration for the talented writers, actors and crew who brought Snowpiercer’s extraordinary post-apocalyptic world to life remains strong. We have been working collaboratively with the producers since last year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy the compelling story and exceptional visual experience. We look forward to working with them on future projects.”
The gripping series is based on Bong Joon-ho’s hit 2013 film, which originated from a graphic novel of the same name. The Snowpiercer series features impressive VFX from Image Engine and Fuse FX, with VFX supervision by Geoff Scott and Damien Thaller. Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs star in the compelling landscape of class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival on a perpetually moving train with 1001 cars that circles the post-apocalyptic globe.
“We love Snowpiercer and believe season four completes a story with incredible talent that will entertain viewers while exploring issues of climate change and class warfare,” said developer Tomorrow Studios’ CEO & partner Marty Adelstein and president & partner Becky Clements. “We are so passionate about this series that we have acquired the rights to control the franchise. We hope to find the perfect partner shortly and finish a great ride with the final season.”
