The train is approaching the end of the line. TNT has decided to end the snowdrops TV series with upcoming fourth season.

A series of post-apocalyptic sci-fi thrillers, snowdrops stars Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Sean Bean, Rowan Blanchard, Alison Wright, Mickey Sumner, Iddo Goldberg, Katie McGuinness, Lena Hall, Archie Panjabi, Annalize Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, Sheila Vand, Mike O’Malley, Chelsea Harris , and Steven Ogg. Set over seven years after the world became a frozen wasteland, the series focuses on the remnants of humanity inhabiting an ever-moving train, Snowpiercer, which circles the globe with hundreds of cars. In season two, Layton (Diggs) and Ruth (Wright) were banished to Big Alice’s compost car and they plotted to take over Snowpiercer. With help from Javier (Urbina) and Alexandra (Blanchard), Layton and Ruth made it back to the train and rallied their supporters. Josie (McGuiness) destroyed the Aquarium car, separating Snowpiercer’s head from the remaining 1,023 cars. The third season picks up with Layton and his entourage commanding a small 10-car “pirate train” in search of Melanie (Connelly) and a possible hot spot to restart civilization. Back on Snowpiercer, Mr. Wilford (Bean) consolidates his power while waiting for Layton to return..

The third season of snowdrops earned an average rating of 0.14 in the 18-49 demographic and 647,000 viewers in Live+ same-day ratings (includes all DVR playback until 3:00 a.m.). Compared to season two, it’s down 42% in the demo and down 28% in viewership.

A TNT spokesperson said: “We can confirm that snowdrops will end after a successful multi-season run on TNT. Its talented writers, cast, and crew took an extraordinary premise and brought it to life in exciting ways. It received critical acclaim, had a significant impact on the post-apocalyptic genre, and now remains in the hearts and minds of fans forever.

snowdrops was renewed for a fourth season in July 2021, ahead of the show’s third season debut. The series is the latest of the “T-nets” (aka TBS, TNT and TruTV) shows to be canceled by Warner Bros. Discovery following the company’s merger in April.

Season four is currently in production. Hopefully the cast and crew still have enough time to bring the story to a satisfying conclusion for viewers.
