Before the premiere of the first season, TNT renewed “Snowpiercer” for a second installment, so the post-apocalyptic story will continue after Layton led a revolution and discovered the existence of a second train.
The production team for the adaptation of the 1982 French graphic novel ‘Le Transperceneige’ and the 2013 film by Bong Joon-ho shot most of the new episodes. However, due to the stoppage of Hollywod by COVID-19 the filming was stopped.
“We were really shooting the last block, episodes 9 and 10. So we are very close to the end, we are almost there,” said the actress. At the moment, it only remains to wait for the restrictions to ease so that the production of ” Snowpiercer ” ends.
What Will Happen In Season 2 Of “Snowpiercer”?
Although the new installment does not yet have an official synopsis, the story is sure to pick up where the first season left off. Following a successful revolution, Melanie transferred control of Snowpiercer to Layton, who hopes to rule democratically.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Graeme Manson explained how this will affect Melanie and Layton in the second season of the TNT series .
“The real real challenge for Layton is to reconcile the revolutionary with what he can be as a politician. And then there is an equal struggle for Melanie, which is her desire to quit, to be an engineer, to go back to the science of survival without politics. And then who’s on the horizon, but it could be the great Mr. Wolford who disarms all of that. So this nascent democracy is under threat, ”Manson explained.
Also, with the appearance of Alexandra, Melanie’s supposedly dead daughter, there will be a new mother-daughter dynamic.
