Mr. Wilford is not just a faceless symbol anymore. Sean Bean is very much alive and bringing his character into the fold on a rival train at a very fast pace. Will the revolution be all for not? See the Season 2 trailer for Snowpiercer.
TNT has also given us a lenthy synopsis that we can share: “At the end of season one, the survivors of the revolution are trying to pick up the pieces and maintain a fragile peace amongst the now merged classes with Layton (Daveed Diggs) emerging as the train’s leader. Discovering Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is alive and headed their way on a rival train, Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) risks going outside to prevent him from invading Snowpiercer. While she’s out there, it’s revealed that Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Melanie’s daughter, who she thought had died, is alive and has become Wilford’s dedicated protegee. In season two, an entirely new power struggle emerges, causing a dangerous rift as people are divided between their loyalty to Layton and to Mr. Wilford, who has a new train, new technology and a game plan that keeps everyone guessing. While Layton battles Wilford for the soul of Snowpiercer, Melanie leads the charge on a shocking new discovery that could change the fate of humanity.”
It’s still crazy to see Melanie in her new role, isn’t it? It looks like she is also in for quite the emotional ride this season, literally and figuratively. Plus, I’m all in for Layton versus Mr. Wilford.
The second season of Snowpiercer begins Monday, January 25th at 9pm ET on TNT. You have plenty of time to catch up on Season 1 on HBO Max.
