'Snowpiercer' chugs toward snow-free 'New Eden' in first teaser trailer for Season 3

Snowpiercer Season 3 premieres on TNT Jan. 24, 2022.

By Josh Weiss

Warmer days lie ahead...or at least that's the hope in the first teaser trailer for Season 3 of TNT's Snowpiercer (arriving at the station in early 2022). Now in control of a small "pirate train" of 10 cars, revolutionary Andre Layton (Hamilton's Daveed Diggs) is determined to find Melanie (Labyrinth's Jennifer Connelly) and seek out a snow-free paradise known simply as "New Eden." Is the planet actually heating up or is it simply a mirage in the world's icy tundra?

Meanwhile, the titular train's inventor and de facto leader, Mr. Wilford (Game of Thrones' Sean Bean), is determined to maintain his control over the rest of the perpetual locomotive through a campaign of intimidation. He's not a totally unreasonable man, though. "We keep everyone as alive as possible," he states in the trailer. "Minus an arm or two." This, of course, is a reference to the callous punishment of subjecting a misbehaving passenger's limbs to the below freezing temperatures of the post-apocalyptic world outside the train until said appendages freeze and shatter.

Watch the teaser below:

"Everyone is trying to find their place in their new world," showrunner and executive producer Becky Clements told Deadline back in May. "There’ll be a bit of a time jump in Season 3 — not significant, but enough to really show the audience, in an efficient and interesting way, what the new world order looks like. And it’s in the spirit of what I was just talking about: the character relationships and dynamics. It’s a lot of fun in Season 3, how we have new alliances and new foes. It’s been fun to watch the scene work, putting new people together."

Alison Wright, Roberto Urbina, Rowan Blanchard, Katie McGuiness, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Archie Panjabi, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Sheila Vand, Mike O’Malley, Chelsea Harris, and Steven Ogg round out the rest of the cast.

Graeme Manson, Aubrey Nealon, Christoph Schrewe, Marty Adelstein, Matthew O’Connor, Ben Rosenblatt, Scott Derrickson, Bong Joon-Ho, Miky Lee,  Jinnie Choi, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun, and  Dooho Choi are executive producers.
