Snowpiercer season 3 will film this Spring in Vancouver.
Filming dates: March 2nd to July 30th.
Snowpiercer was renewed this week ahead of its season 2 premiere next week on TNT and on Netflix outside the U.S.
Inspired by Oscar-winner Bong Joon Ho’s futuristic 2013 thriller with Chris Evans, the Snowpiercer series takes place seven years after a post-apocalyptic Ice Age — the Freeze– aboard a perpetually moving train that circles the globe with the rich at the Front and the poor at the Tail end.
Cast: Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Alison Wright, Iddo Goldberg, Susan Park, Katie McGuinness, Sam Otto, Sheila Vand, Mike O’Malley, Annalise Basso, Jaylin Fletcher, Lena Hall, Roberto Urbina, Rowan Blanchard and Sean Bean.
Showrunner: Graeme Manson.
When Snowpiercer returns with season 2 we’ll meet the train’s creator Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean), who did not die when the train left the station in Chicago without him seven years ago. He took refuge aboard his prototype of Snowpiercer called Big Alice.
Mr. Wilford returns to Snowpiercer and brings chaos and corruption to the freedom just won.

In the season one finale, Big Alice attached itself to Snowpiercer and brought both trains to a halt. Now Wilford plans to reclaim what is his from Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly).
I’m back and I’ve come to take what’s mine — Mr Wilford.

What happened in season one?
Train managers Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly) and Ruth Wardle (Alison Wright) at the Front end recruited former homicide detective Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) from the Tail end to investigate a sadistic murder.
During the investigation, Andre figures out the culprit is in First Class and learns Melanie’s secret — that Mr. Wilford is not aboard and she is the real Boss of the train. For this, she has him drawered.
3rd Class and the Tailies stage a revolt in which Big John (Jonathan Lloyd Walker) is killed.
In the finale, Melanie and Andre team up with a plan to uncouple the cars containing Commander Grey and his enforcers from the two ends and let them veer away (unfortunately with some shackled Tailies). Afterwards the front and tail ends recouple, but Melanie is missing.
It’s a successful revolution for new Tailie Leader Andre Layton until Big Alice couples up to the tail end of Snowpiercer. Instead of Mr. Wilford, a young woman boards — Melanie’s daughter (Rowan Blanchard).
