On the time of the cancellation, everything of the fourth season was within the can, that means that an ending had been filmed, however producers would wish to discover a new outlet to air the episodes.

Honestly, we misplaced hope the episodes would see the sunshine of day as a result of it was the newest in a protracted line of financially pushed choices by Warner Bros. Discovery, which had already scrapped the already-completed Batgirl film, amongst different issues.

Because the weeks become months, the prospect of Snowpiercer securing a house to air its final-ever episodes appeared bleak … till AMC stepped as much as the plate this week.

Sadly for followers, the fourth season will carry the present to a detailed. The excellent news is that was all the time imagined to be the plan.

TNT picked up the fourth season in 2021 as a result of the sequence’ future was deliberate years prematurely.
