Based on Bong Joon-ho‘s acclaimed film of the same name which was based on a French graphic novel, the TNT series Snowpiercer is the perfect blend of sci-fi and social commentary, and it tells the story of what happens after the apocalypse has happened and turned the earth into a frozen wasteland. The series focuses on the survivors who are on a train that is constantly circling the globe. And just like there is a class system on earth, there is also a class system inside the train and the people with no means live in the back of the train in dire conditions but there is a revolt in progress right now.
Snowpiercer has been confirmed for the fourth season but sadly Season 4 of Snowpiercer will also serve as the final season of the series. So, while you wait for Snowpiercer Season 4 here are some shows you could watch.
