Snowpiercer has had what feels like a long journey to the small screen. Sure, it’s only been about two years, but given that we’ve been following it throughout the entire process, it’s felt longer. When last we heard, in our roundtable interview with Jennifer Connelly, they had finished filming the pilot. However, the filming of a pilot is no guarantee of a series order.

Now, TNT has announced that they are moving forward with a full series order on the show. At this time, there is no information on how long each season will be, when its production start date is, or when the release date is for the series.

For those who don’t know, Snowpiercer was first a graphic novel by Jacques Lob, and it took place in a world that could no longer support life, and all the remaining inhabitants rode on a train that eternally circled the globe. The cars on the train made up a class system that you knew wouldn’t be taken lightly by those at the bottom. The graphic novel was adapted in 2013 by South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho, and starred Chris Evans and Tilda Swinton.

This latest iteration of the story stars Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs, Oscar-winning Jennifer Connelly, and The Sarah Conner Chronicles’ Josh Friedman.
