The upcoming TV adaptation of Snowpiercer has picked up an early renewal for a second season—almost a year before the show is slated to premiere. The long-gestating series, according to Deadline, will also move networks, shifting from the originally reported TNT to TBS (marking a departure from the WarnerMedia channel's comedy programming).
Among the cast are two Tony Award winners: Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, White Noise) and Lena Hall (Hedwig and the Angry Inch). The ensemble cast also includes Jennifer Connelly, Mickey Sumner, Susan Park, Benjamin Haigh, Sasha Frolova, Katie McGuinness, Alison Wright, Annalise Basso, Sam Otto, Roberto Urbina, and Sheila Vand.
Like the 2013 film of the same name, the series will be set on a massive train, housing by class the sole survivors of a global, apocalyptic Ice Age. Diggs will star as Layton Well, a prisoner-turned-revolutionary fighter against the elites who inhabit the front of the train. Hall will play Sayori, a member of the train’s upper management.
