Watching an American sitcom that is capable of truly blowing our minds off with its unique plot is always a piece of treat. Snowpiercer has to be one of those shows which have their plot come straight out of the extraordinary. It has been created for TNT and dropped on the network back on the 17th of May 2020. The tale of this story has been taken from Le Transperceneige, which is a French graphic novel. It has been penned down by Jacques Lob as well as Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette. Now, you guys should also know that back in 2013, there was a film that was also based on this novel. So the plot of the series is set in a continuation of what we have seen in the books as well as the film.
When it comes to questioning the society based on the class distinction along with the various social injustices and the games people play in order to survive, then Snowpiercer is something that you must watch. The whole story is so unique that it is hard to find something as intriguing. Back in 2020, the show was renewed for a second season, but of course, it was not expected by the fans. It is because the project has been going through development hell in the past, and thus, there were a lot of creative differences arising in the team, which created chaos. Then the double treat was waiting for the fans when the creators announced, ahead of the launch of Snowpiercer season 2, that the show will also have a third season.
