Published Jan 16, 2020After years of delays, the much-anticipated TV adaptation of Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer is finally coming. After first being announced in 2015, the series now has an official premiere date and — better yet — a trailer.
TNT has set the Snowpiercer premiere date for May 31. As previously reported, it stars Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs of the rap outfit .clipping. The series is being based on Bong's 2013 film, with the director also serving as executive producer for the upcoming series. Snowpiercer first arrived as a graphic novel.
Down below, you can watch the newly shared trailer for the show.
The TV version is "set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland" and "centres on the remnants of humanity who inhabit a perpetually moving train, with 1,001 cars, that circles the globe," according to the official logline.
The news come as Bong rides a wave of success around his most recent film Parasite, which is not only up for a Best Picture Oscar but also being turned into a TV series.
Production is already underway for Snowpiercer Season 2.
