Snowpiercer Season 4: When will the final season premiere?
Unfortunately, the new season will not return on the network until January 2023, so fans will have to wait a little longer.
If you recall, the show received a fourth season renewal in July 2021, before the start of the third season. Later, it was revealed in June 2022 that the fourth season would be its last, making it the last scripted original series to air on TNT before the production of original programming was discontinued. This announcement came just before the fourth season’s premiere. Additionally, as of January 4, 2023, the exact release date and time slot of the new season have not been revealed. Before, it was speculated that January was the likely month, but no information has been made public yet.
If we still have to guess, it will be released sometime in the early months of 2023. As, the filming for the fourth season began on March 28, 2022, and concluded on August 6, 2022. We would like to highlight that this is just mere speculation that will be confirmed in the coming weeks, so fans should stay patient. In the meantime, take a look at the post on Twitter in which Daveed Diggs and the cast formally announce the renewal of Snowpiercer Season 4, quoting, “Psssttt! #Snowpiercer Season 4 is coming. Are you ready?”

Snowpiercer Season 4 Plot
“Snowpiercer has been an incredibly successful series for us that continues to capture the imagination of viewers, grow audience and maintain strong ratings,” said Sam Linsky and Adrienne O’Riain, co-heads of scripted original programming for TBS, TNT, and truTV. “All of our seasons embark on an emotional, unexpected ride, and the well-plotted storylines will continue to evolve and remain relevant to audiences. We’re excited to keep the train running into Season 4.”
Additionally, a spokesperson for the network said in a statement to Deadline, quote, “We can confirm that Snowpiercer will end after a successful, multi-season run on TNT.” Further adding, “Its talented writers, actors and crew took an extraordinary premise and brought it to life in thrilling ways. It was critically acclaimed, had a significant impact on the post-apocalyptic genre and now remains in the hearts and minds of fans forever.”
The season is expected to follow up on the final episode, “The Original Sinners,” in which the viewers got to see Layton and Melanie get ready to fight over who will control the train. Bojan, who is later discovered to be still alive, and Wilford’s new cold man are among the forces that seize control of the Night Car and take pleasure in the mayhem. In the end, Melanie strikes a deal with Wilford, but she later regrets it, as does Layton. Instead of allowing the situation to worsen, Melanie and Layton reach an agreement in which they exile Wilford along with them on the track scaler and then offer the populace the option of remaining on Snowpiercer with Melanie or moving to New Eden with Layton.
As people choose where to go, the separation of the trains forces loved ones to say goodbye. After Oz leaves her, LJ accidentally chokes to death on her father’s glass eye, Snowpiercer decides last-minute to stay with Audrey, and Bennett stays after Melanie fully commits to their relationship. Big Alice is derailed by the difficult route to the Horn of Africa, but everyone lives, and they discover that the outside is warm and livable. Three months later, Melanie is traveling in the Snowpiercer when she notices a rocket explode on the horizon, sending several mortar shells in its direction.
Y’ALL WE DID IT!!! 🎉
New Eden has been found, Wilford is out of power (for now), and #Snowpiercer travels on. But that doesn’t mean our story is over.
SEASON 4. COMING SOON.
We'll see you then!
