TBS has released the first trailer for Snowpiercer, its upcoming post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama that is based on the film by Korean director Bong Joon-ho. Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly and Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs are headlining this new futuristic thriller, which is set to debut in spring 2020.
Set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, Snowpiercer centers on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation.
The first look at the series reveals that it is more or less a carbon copy of the acclaimed film, albeit with some minor twists and changes. Still TBS is confident it has a hit on its hands and has apparently already greenlit a second season for Snowpiercer.
