Plot Synopsis

Based on the 2013 movie of the same name, SNOWPIERCER is a futuristic thriller set more than seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, centering on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a 1001 car, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. Class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out in this television adaptation. Episodes include:

"First, the Weather Changed" (Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT): Snowpiercer, the Great Ark Train, has kept the last remnants of humanity alive for almost seven years. A rigid class system maintains order, with First Class holding power over workers, while a condemned Prison Class struggles to survive in the Tail. Now, a grisly murder is stoking class division, so Melanie Cavill, the powerful head of hospitality, deputizes a dangerous rebel to help solve the killing -- Andre Layton, the world's only surviving homicide detective.

"Prepare to Brace" (Sunday, May 24, 2020 at 8pm ET/PT): Layton uses his new position as train detective to investigate the murder while gathering intel for the revolution on the side. Meanwhile, Melanie faces a resource crisis, with potentially drastic consequences for the entire train.

"Access Is Power" (Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT): Layton descends into Snowpiercer's black market with Till, searching for both the killer and a valuable commodity for his revolution. Melanie stages a prize fight to distract the passengers from mounting class tension.

"Without Their Maker" (Sunday, June 7, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT): A shocking twist in the murder investigation brings Layton and Till's manhunt to a cat-and-mouse climax. But Layton is getting too close to Melanie's big secret, which may prove the most dangerous game of all.

"Justice Never Boarded" (Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 9pm ET/PT): Tensions between Third Class and First Class are boiling as Melanie stages the trial of the Snowpiercer killer. Third Class threatens a work stoppage, demanding representation on the jury, and Melanie makes a fateful decision about which side to favor.
