With season 2 coming down the track any day now, TNT has revealed that its number 1 drama series Snowpiercer has been renewed for season 3.

The series, based on the movie of the same name, spent its first season laying the groundwork for an explosive revolution between the haves and the have-nots onboard the Snowpiercer.

The finale saw the survivors of the revolution picking up the pieces and struggling to maintain a fragile peace amongst the now merged classes with Layton (Daveed Diggs) emerging as the train’s leader.

However, discovering Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is alive and headed their way on a rival train, Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) risked going outside to prevent him from invading Snowpiercer. While braving the elements, it was revealed that Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Melanie’s daughter, who she thought had died, is not only alive, but has become Wilford’s dedicated protegee.

In season two, an entirely new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing.

While Layton battles Wilford for the soul of Snowpiercer, Melanie leads the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity.

Season 2 of Snowpiercer kicks off on on Monday, January 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TNT.
