The Plot of Snowpiercer Season 3
The show builds off of the film and adheres to its core structure. The last of humanity fights off the frozen planet from a massive train that never stops moving. The people in the first class have it pretty good, while the workers in the third class are living in abject poverty and planning a revolution.
Even though the show has borrowed much from the film, its narrative direction has veered so far off the original plot that we doubt the film's climactic third act will provide any insight into the series' climactic third season.
“I would say we often let the storytelling dictate it, and we have a number of elements to this show. We constantly mention how it's a bit of a genre mash-up. It's a human drama; it's an action-adventure show; it's a science fiction show,” Clements said to Deadline.
“[Co-showrunners] Graeme [Manson] and [co-EP] Aubrey [Nealon] are just very good about making sure that those three narratives are alive, and that's usually how we come to the conclusion of what [a particular] season would be. So the answer is, we're always chasing something big that can open up the storytelling,” says Nealon.
After the revelation in season two that the planet is getting warmer – with the train possibly to blame – one thing is certain: the climate change metaphor will continue. It's too vast a subject to be settled in a single conversation this year, therefore this thread is likely to continue.
The second season's conclusion foreshadowed “weather ahead,” and it appears the elements will play a significant role as the antagonist in the upcoming third season.
Is There a Trailer for This Film?
Yes, the Snowpiercer season 3 trailer is now available, and it looks as intense as ever as we follow Andre Layton, who is desperately trying to find Melanie aboard a new pirate train that is nothing like the one they're used to.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Jennifer Connelly in Snowpiercer Season 3?
Exclusive. Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) and Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) were at odds again in Snowpiercer Season 3 Episode 9. Melanie returned to Snowpiercer after being rescued after six months of being stranded on a mobile solo car, only to discover that Layton had misled the passengers about the reality of New Eden.
Is There a New Eden in Snowpiercer?
Finally, Snowpiercer's season 3 finale makes the wise decision to reveal whether or not New Eden exists rather than making everyone wait another season. New Eden, as it happens, is real. The warm spot is accurate, with the temperature rising as they approach it.
Does the Earth warm in Snowpiercer?
According to the first weather balloon launched from the Engine, the temperature in the high atmosphere is at least -86 degrees Celsius (presumably -26 degrees or more, due to the beeping heard from the computer every time the readout got warmer). In actuality, developing anything like CW-7 would constitute Solar geoengineering.
