On May 17, 2020, TNT premiered Snowpiercer, an American post-apocalyptic dystopian thriller television drama series. It is based on both Bong Joon-2013 ho’s film of the same name as Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand, and Jean-Marc Rochette’s 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, from which the film was adapted.
TNT’s Snowpiercer was, of course, a slower burn than its narrative predecessors, and it thrived in a weekly episodic format that allowed us to explore the train and its toxic power dynamics in a more comprehensive way. It wasn’t groundbreaking television, and it didn’t quite make it to our year-end list, but it was a good weekly watch with a lot of story potential.
The same is true in the second season, and now that the first rebellion has taken place, you can feel the plot settle into some fascinating character arcs eventually. It also requires a number of calculated risks; For example, Layton almost immediately leaves the democracy for which the lower classes fought for martial law.
He doesn’t have much of a choice – in the Season 1 finale, a smaller but more powerful supply train called ‘Big Alice’ took over the train, with both Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) as Melanie’s daughter Alex (Rowan Blanchard). , who she assumed had died seven years ago. It also stands out as the de facto leader of the movement.

It’s also refreshing that the series’ female characters are given some of the most interesting arcs. Miss Audrey, in particular, delves deep into her painful past with Wilford, which doesn’t really begin until mid-season 2. To face the horrors she’s endured, Tilly (Mickey Sumner) reluctantly turns to religion while Alex is torn between loving her absent mother and staying true to her mentor.
Snowpiercer’s story should benefit from the weekly release again. It’s not exactly a binge show as it juggles different plots and often changes main characters and themes. But as its character stories broaden and layer, this becomes normal over time; it remains exciting and original.
It’s not the same show as in the first season, which is a positive. Snowpiercer Season 2 is a realigned but richer experience, even for those of us who enjoyed the early episodes. It still looks like a reflection, but not in the same way as before. The point now is to find our way forward and adapt to new standards, just like in our real life. We haven’t gotten off the train yet, but there’s a chance we will.
