This one looks one to watch! Netflix has recently dropped the official trailer to the series, and we already cannot wait! Snowpiercer is set in a post-apocalyptic world, taking place seven years after a global climate catastrophe. Season One will be made up of 10 episodes – and we don’t have to wait very long either!

Snowpiercer, created by Bong Joon-ho, the man behind Oscar standout Parasite, will land on Netflix on May 25th. There are only a number of humans left on earth, all of which are on the Snowpiercer. The synopsis describes it as ‘a perpetual-motion train constantly circling the icy surface of the earth. The train is ordered according to a class system, with the elites living an extravagant life in the front cars and the poverty-stricken lower classes inhabiting the tail in squalid conditions’. We’re already watching in anticipation for this one!

What is Snowpiercer?

Snowpiercer focuses on social class, a dystopian take on life as we know it. The synopsis continues to describe the series as telling a story of ‘what happens in the face of extreme inequality’. Snowpierecer focuses on the rebellion the oppressed take as they have finally had enough of being treated the way they are. This suspenseful series follows the same story of the 2013 film of the same name. Fans worldwide loved the movie. The Netflix series will hopefully receive the same praise.

There are also rumors that the series will be split up on different days. Netflix usually releases all episodes at once, meaning subscribers can usually binge whenever they feel necessary. Adding episodes gradually will build the intensity even further. Chilling.

Snowpiercer was actually meant to be released years ago!

Snowpiercer was actually delayed for a number of years due to creative differences. But finally, the series will be hitting the streaming service this May and we can’t wait. With an amazing cast including Daveed Diggs and Jennifer Connelly, we already know it’s going to be a smash. Fun fact – Snowpiercer is inspired by a French graphic novel from the 80s, which was set in an apocalyptic wasteland in 2021. That’s next year, and if this year is anything to go by, we’re hoping this doesn’t happen!
