Season 2 of Snowpiercer has officially concluded now. However, the work for Season 3 is already on. This show is based on a novel and a film made in 2013 by the same name. The story revolves around how a group of passengers is stuck in a moving train, and the Earth is totally a tundra now. These passengers are the only ones who are alive on the planet. The train has placed the passengers based on their class. The first season of the show deals with how the poor people in the train begin a revolution against the rich people’s behavior in the first-class compartments.
In Season 2, we saw Mr. Wilford, the train’s inventor, arriving with a supply train, Big Alice. The inhabitants of both the trains were thrown together, which resulted in a complex and messy struggle. The results were totally disastrous. Let us look at what Season 3 might have in store for us.
Snowpiercer Season 3 Plot: What We Can Expect from Season 3?
The second season had ended with a huge cliffhanger where a group of rebels led by Andre Layton stole ten cars of the Snowpiercer and made it a pirate train. They then made their way towards the Rocky Mountains to save Melanie. Late they found out that Melanie had abandoned them and left towards the frozen wilderness to end her life. Cavill left back a few of her theories and information, which showed that a few parts of the Earth were warming up. This meant that people could start colonizing over there.
Season 2’s ending part has set the scene for Layton and the company to get back to the Great Ark Train and take it away from Mr. Wilford. The conflicts that have been arising will decide the future of humans. The third season could also focus on Melanie’s dream that the future will actually lie outside the train.
