Warner Bros. Discovery is doing its thing again where they have a finished series or film and just decide not to make use of it in an attempt to save money. Snowpiercer is no longer set to air its final season on TNT, which is especially bizarre considering it was the network’s last remaining original series. Not all is lost though, as the series is set to find a new home on another network.
A spokesperson shared the following statement in regard to this decision:
TNT will not air season four of Snowpiercer,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “This was a difficult decision, but our admiration for the talented writers, actors and crew who brought Snowpiercer’s extraordinary post-apocalyptic world to life remains strong. We have been working collaboratively with the producers since last year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy the compelling story and exceptional visual experience. We look forward to working with them on future projects.
The production behind the series was Tomorrow Studios, who also released a statement in regards to this move. They have purchased the rights to the entire series to ensure they can shop the full project with the final season. CEO Marty Adelstein and president Becky Clements shared the following:
We love Snowpiercer and believe season four completes a story with incredible talent that will entertain viewers while exploring issues of climate change and class warfare. We are so passionate about this series that we have acquired the rights to control the franchise. We hope to find the perfect partner shortly and finish a great ride with the final season.Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements
The final season was announced last year in June and highlighted as its last entry. Warner Bros.’ decision to pull another show that is fully filmed is very likely done for tax reasons. It’s been a recurring theme throughout the last few years, as the new leadership mainly focuses on saving money rather than making it to cover their debt.
