In Season 2, there will be a dangerous rift among the survivors as they will be divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford. Of course, Wilford has not come empty-handed -- he has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing.

But as Layton battles Wilford for the "soul of Snowpiercer", Melanie will lead the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity. Will her discovery make life on the Snowpiercer redundant?

If you can keep away from spoilers and want to watch the episode in your own time, you can Netflix and chill. Just queue 'Snowpiercer' on your watch list.

Want a Season 1 refresher?

Slightly confused about where the story left off last season. Read our "Ending Explained" for Season 1. Season 1 is also available on HBO Max since January 1, 2021. Season 3 has already been greenlit so this is not a series that will be abandoned mid-plot. So you can safely put it on your watch list and see the likes of Daveed Diggs, Sean Bean, Melanie Cavill and Rowan Blanchard vie for screen attention in this thrilling dystopic aboard the train that never stops.  

Snowpiercer Season 2 episodes airs Mondays at 9 pm ET / 8 pm CT on TNT and Tuesdays on Netflix.
