TNT representatives reportedly told Deadline of the show's official ending. The network praised the drama's gifted authors, actors, and crew who thrillingly brought to life an astonishing premise. Snowpiercer was widely praised by critics and had a big impact on the post-apocalyptic genre, which fans will always remember.

The fourth season of the post-apocalyptic series is presently in production. Reportedly, the cast's options were not picked up, freeing the performers to secure alternative employment.

After the globe turns into a frozen wasteland, the passengers of a train that is continually moving are followed in Snowpiercer. The series, which is based on the 2013 Bong Joon-ho movie of the same name, stars Roberto Urbina, Jennifer Connelly, Ido Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, and Daveed Diggs.

The show announced Paul Zbyszewski (Helstrom) as its new showrunner and added Michael Aronov (The Americans) and Clark Gregg (Marvel's Agents of SHIELD) to its cast in March. Graeme Manson and Aubrey Nealon's successor as executive producers is Zbyszewski.

With shows like The Alienist, Claws, The Closer (and its spinoff Major Crimes), Dallas, Falling Skies, Franklin & Bash, The Last Ship (and its spinoff Leverage), The Librarians (and its spinoff Perception), and Rizzoli & Isles among its many hits, TNT once had a strong reputation for producing quality scripted programming.
