Snowpiercer, the lone remaining scripted series on TNT, is now the latest show to be scrapped in Warner Bros. Discovery’s ongoing content write-offs.
The show’s fourth and final season will not air on TNT despite production having been completed. Tomorrow Studios, which produces the post-apocalyptic drama, will look for another home for the show.
“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.”
TNT announced in June 2022 that season four of Snowpiercer — based on a French graphic novel that was also the source material for Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 film — would be its last. It would have been the last homegrown scripted series to air on TNT as WBD pared away scripted shows on the channel and sister outlets TBS and TruTV. As it now stands, that designation goes to Animal Kingdom, which wrapped its six-season run in August.
More to come.
