Snowpiercer Season 2: Production Details!
There is a piece of good news for the fans. The cast and crew already completed the production of the second season before the shutdown caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. One of the main cast members, Annalise Basso, confirmed this news herself. In a recent interview, she said, “I’m really delighted because we were just finishing Snowpiercer Season 2 when everything got shut down because of the outbreak. And the exceptional thing about the show is there are so many tales to tell about the people on the train and survival.”
Snowpiercer Season 2: Plot Details!
Since the debut season still has a long journey of seven episodes ahead. Therefore it is impossible to predict the actual storyline for the second season.

The endpoint, that flagpole that we put up, probably, moves down the road with more seasons. Or you stick to that endpoint and figure out a reboot of the characters and the train. I’m not sure what that would look like.”
Basso also talked about the future of the show. She said, “I hope one day we’ll be able to take the audience off of the train. I think one of the things is that people feel ambushed. I hope that what Snowpiercer does is that it gives people to escape because there are so many personalities to relate to, and it’s a great distraction. Anybody who loves a great sci-fi show and great storytelling and amazing special effects, I hope will fall in love with the show.”
