Snowpiercer: hell at Warner, season 4 may never arrive on Netflix
After three seasons, the Snowpiercer series finale is being shut down by TNT and therefore may never see the light of day on Netflix.
Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette's comic strip has been beautifully brought to the screen with Bong Joon-ho's film adaptation, Snowpiercer: Le Transperceneige . On the other hand, on the series side, that was not the case with the story imagined by Josh Friedman and Graeme Manson which landed on Netflix in 2020.
After a disappointing and inconsistent third season, the train was on for a fourth and final game before the terminus. It was without counting on TNT, which changed its mind and purely and simply deprived the next chapter of broadcasting, even though the series has been filmed since August 2022. .
The channel belonging to the Warner Bros. group. Discovery, the owner clarified the situation in a statement:
“We can confirm that TNT will not be airing Season 4 of Snowpiercer. It was a difficult decision, but our admiration for the talented writers, cast and crew who brought the extraordinary post-apocalyptic world of Snowpiercer to life remains strong. We have been working with the producers for the past year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy its compelling story and exceptional viewing experience, and we look forward to working with them on future projects. “
It should be remembered that the conglomerate has carried out a major cleaning lately, as part of content cuts for tax deduction. Snowpiercer has joined a long list of outcasts that include Batgirl, Demimonde, The Big D(deprived of broadcast a few weeks before its release), Chad and Kill The Orange Bear or even Westworld. Thus, season 4 is threatened never to be released on the screens… and compromises by force of circumstances its next broadcast on Netflix internationally.
However, there remains the hope that the series will be bought out like The Big D and Chad (taken over by Roku and Peacock). La firm au N rouge – which broadcasts the episodes in France and in a good part of the world – could jump at the chance (a godsend knowing that the filming is already done). It wouldn't be the first time the streaming service has saved a production, it has already done so for Manifest or Lucifer after all. Besides, fans of the SF proposition will be desperately awaiting such an announcement.
