While the 2013 film Snowpiercer (starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, and Tilda Swinton) had a limited theatrical release and a really low domestic box office total, it was critically acclaimed (95% on Rotten Tomatoes) and is considered a cult classic. Perhaps that’s why TBS has a new television series coming based on the story, which you can preview in the Snowpiercer Official Trailer.
Like the film, this TV series is based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette. Jennifer Connelly stars in the television series with a cast that includes Daveed Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Katie McGuinness, Annalise Basso, and Sam Otto. It is coming to TBS in Spring 2020.

Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this riveting television adaptation.
