As Season 3 of Snowpiercer just ended on the 28th of March, we are already wondering when Snowpiercer Season 4 is going to arrive. The post-apocalyptic dystopian thriller is based on the 1982 graphic novel called Le Transperceneige, and the 2013 movie of the same name. The show aired its 1st season in 2020, its 2nd in 2021, and its 3rd in 2022.
The series is set in 2026, in a world where everything is frozen and a train called Snowpiercer carries the last remaining humans on the Earth. The train constantly circulates the globe and this constant movement prevents passengers from getting frozen. Although at first instance, these people seem lucky enough to find shelter at the end of the world, the train is divided according to classes and not everyone lives under the same conditions.
The season finale of the 3rd season witnessed a shocking ending, as the train was split between Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs). We want to know what’s going to happen after that but let’s find out first if there is going to be a Snowpiercer Season 4 and even if there is, let’s learn when is the Snowpiercer Season 4 release date.
Snowpiercer Season 4 Release Date
Well, good news came early for the fans of the show, as the series was renewed for a 4th season even before Season 3 was released. So, we know for sure that there is going to be a Season 4 of Snowpiercer. This upcoming season is currently in development, according to the series’ IMDB page.
For Snowpiercer Season 4 release date, we have a guess. Since the show has been releasing a season per year, we are definitely getting the 4th season in 2023. But when in 2023? The 1st season started in May 2020, the 2nd in January 2021, and the 3rd also in January 2022. So, we certainly expect the new season to arrive in the 1st few months of 2023, most likely in January 2023.
- Melanie Cavill played by Jennifer Connelly: Melanie is the Head of Hospitality aboard Snowpiercer. She is also responsible for making the daily announcements on the train. At first, everyone believes that she is the representative of Mr. Wilford, the creator of the train. However, it turns out Melanie is just the Head Engineer and assumed her other roles. When this is exposed, a revolution takes place and she is displaced from her position.
- Andre Layton played by Daveed Diggs: Layton is the world’s only surviving homicide detective and is one of the rebels who assists and leads a revolution against the First Class of the train. Because being formerly a detective, he is hired by Melanie to inspect the killings on the train and Layton uses this job for both making research about the killings and gathering sources and supporters for the cause.
- Bess Till played by Mickey Sumner: She is part of the train’s security force and is a former police officer. She joins Layton’s revolution.
- Ruth Wardell played by Alison Wright: Looks after the First Class passengers and is key in the communication to the Tail.
- Miss Audrey played by Lena Hall: She is the lead madam in the Nightcar and represents the Third Class.
- Mr. Wilford played by Sean Bean: Is the creator of the train.
Other members of the Snowpierces cast include Iddo Goldberg as Bennett Knox, Sheila Vand as Zarah Ferami, Annalise Basso as LJ Folger, Roberto Urbina as Javier de la Torre, Katie McGuinness as Josie Wellstead, and more.
Snowpiercer Season 3 Ending Explained
In the 9th episode of the season, we saw Melanie coming back after she was thought to be dead since the finale of Season 2. And then in the same episode, what seems to happen is Melanie betrays Lanton as she tells everyone on the train that the idea put forth by Lanton about New Eden is a lie. However, in the final episode, we learn that Melanie and Lanton are actually working together to trick Mr. Wilford. The two end up defeating Mr. Wilford and leave him in the track scaler that Melanie had used to survive. So, basically, they leave him to die.
After that, Melanie and Lanton give people in Snowpiercer a choice, either going with Lanton to the Horn of Africa to find a warm spot or staying with Melanie on the train. The group of Lanton, in fact, go to the Horn of Africa, and luckily, the place they find is indeed warm. The people enjoy the sun and being outside for the 1st time in many years. Meanwhile, 3 months later we see Melanie driving Snowpiercer as she sees an explosion on the tracks ahead of her.
The explosion seems to be coming from a missile launched into the sky but the ambiguity over the agents of the explosion is yet to be known. We guess that mystery is left for Snowpiercer Season 4.
