A spokesperson gave the following statement: “We can confirm that Snowpiercer will end after a successful, multi-season run on TNT,”. “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 2013 film by Bong Joon-ho was adapted from a 1982 French novel by the name of Le Transperceneige. The show had an intriguing premise at the heart of it.  Several years after the world had become a frozen desolate wasteland, the remaining survivors took refuge in a giant perpetually moving train which circumnavigated the world. The world suffered this fate due to a failed climate-change experiment. The train named Snowpiercer is the last refuge for human survivors. It follows the drama and conflict that ensues among the survivors.

The train had three sections, the first is housed by the top strata of the society, the wealthy elite, the second is populated by the working class, and the last section is left for the “tail people”, who live in horrid conditions. The Tail people have attempted several unsuccessful revolution attempts in the past to force their way through to the front.
