With its long-awaited premiere just a month away, TNT dropped a new trailer for its Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs-led Snowpiercer.
Set more than seven years after the world freezes over, the series explores class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival as the remnants of humanity circle the globe in a perpetually-moving, 1001 car train.
Once the lower class becomes fed up with their circumstances, rising tensions lead to a violent revolution, which is previewed in the above spot.
The series is based on the critically-acclaimed graphic novel series as well as Bong Joon Ho’s (Parasite) film adaptation. It also stars Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand and Jaylin Fletcher.
Graeme Manson serves as the current showrunner and executive producer after the long-gestating series changed showrunners and directors while shuffling around Turner’s networks. It also moved up its premiere date from May 31 to May 17 at 9 p.m.
