TNT has announced yet another changing of the guard for its hit series Snowpiercer as it approaches its 4th season.


A New Showrunner Is Taking Over

Agents of SHIELD’s Paul Zbyszewski will be taking over the show from Graeme Manson for this next season. Manson took the show over from original showrunner Josh Friedman in 2018, making this the third producer change since it was first announced to be adapted from the 2013 movie.

“I’m so grateful to everyone at TNT and Tomorrow Studios for letting me join the riveting world of Snowpiercer that Graeme and Aubrey [Nealon] have so beautifully crafted and built,” Zbyszewski said in a statement. “We have an exciting fourth season planned, and I can’t wait to be on set with such an incredible cast and crew as we continue to explore new worlds, create new mysteries and develop character relationships.”

Yes, he said “explore new worlds,” which is an exciting prospect in this series that has pretty much been about the inside of the same train for three seasons.

New Cast Members Are Also Joining

In addition to Zbyszewski, Snowpiercer will also be gaining a couple new cast members. Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson on Agents of SHIELD) and Tony winner Michael Aronov (Anton Baklanov on The Americans) will be joining in unnamed roles as the adventures of the apocalyptic train(s) reach new plateaus.

“We are excited for fans to see Paul thrillingly propel the complex journey of Snowpiercer even further with Christoph continuing in his role as directing executive producer,” Fellow Executive Producers Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements said in a joint statement on Monday, “especially as Clark and Michael join our incredibly talented cast.”

Filming for Season 4 began on Monday in Vancouver and there is no announced release date as of yet. If you’re following along with Season 3, be sure to check out our weekly reviews and recaps for more in-depth info on the story so far.
