Production begins today in Vancouver, Canada on the fourth season of TNT’s top cable drama series, “Snowpiercer.” Produced by Tomorrow Studios, season four adds new cast members Clark Gregg (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “The Avengers,” “Thor”) and Tony® Award winner Michael Aronov (“The Drop,” “The Americans,” “Operation Finale”), and new showrunner and executive producer, Emmy® nominee Paul Zbyszewski (“Lost,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Helstrom”).
“We have been blessed with an abundance of riches in building the world of Snowpiercer – from the incredible cast and crew to the loyal fanbase and the building blocks afforded from the film and graphic novel. Tonight’s finale is the culmination of several storylines, with unexpected twists and turns around every corner, and leading to an exciting fourth season with Paul’s vision and creative storytelling continuing the incredible show momentum,” said executive producers Graeme Manson and Aubrey Nealon.
In episode nine of season three, Layton (Daveed Diggs), Ben (Iddo Goldberg), Josie (Katie McGuinness), Alex (Rowan Blanchard), and Javi (Roberto Urbina) band together to rescue Melanie (Jennifer Connelly). Relieved to find her alive, she is brought back on board the train safely, resulting in a blowout party on the train. The celebration is short-lived however when Melanie exposes Layton for misleading the passengers by offering hope of finding a viable existence in New Eden. Alliances are tested in the action-packed third season finale that will air tonight at 9 pm ET/PT on TNT.

We have an exciting fourth season planned, and I can’t wait to be on set with such an incredible cast and crew as we continue to explore new worlds, create new mysteries, and develop character relationships,” added Zbyszewski.
